When you start a family, you have more than just aesthetics to consider when planning a kitchen remodeling project. You also need to think about the safety of your children, and how well your features will stand up to the wear and tear that can come with kids. When looking at countertops, consider these kid-friendly options.
What Countertop Should You Get for Your Kitchen?
Solid surface countertops are known for their sturdy, acrylic material that comes in a wide variety of colors and styles. Corian is also a non-porous material, so it's resistant to staining. Additionally, it can handle both mild heat and impact, so you won't have to worry about scratches or chips. Finally, Corian offers more "give" than other materials, meaning a dropped glass is less likely to break on this type of countertop.
If you're investing in granite countertops during kitchen remodeling, you want to be sure they'll last. When this stone is properly sealed, it becomes non-porous and easy to clean, so it'll be protected from spills and drips. Granite is also more heat resistant than Corian and Quartz are, so the sealed top is worry free in this area.
If you’re looking for a comparable material to the durability and longevity of of granite, consider quartz countertops. Because the material is engineered, it’s an environmentally friendly choice that comes in a variety of choices so you can easily match your kitchen design. The cost is similar to that of granite, but you don’t need to worry about resealing it. The material is also non-porous, so bacteria won’t be a problem. Easily clean the counter with water and mild soap.
