The favorite among chefs and restaurants, stainless steel countertops can offer a great twist in almost all kitchens.These type of countertop, can offer ultra-heat resistant surfaces, easy to clean and non-staining surfaces. One of the most important advantages is that does not harbor bacteria but can damage knifes. Stainless steel countertops are cut to spec surfaces that can be used in almost any kitchen design. When you need something sleek with a shiny modern look to it, look no further than stainless countertops.
Consumers who are drawn to the time-tested, worn look of antique woods may see the potential in salvaged or reclaimed woods. These materials can add great color, texture and character to the kitchen for a look that‘s both eco- and rustic-chic. Post-consumer recycled paper composite, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, is another eco-friendly countertop option that‘s similar in durability to wood.
Granite, Corian, concrete and stainless steel are all top choices for a kitchen that will see a lot of traffic and food preparation. All of these surfaces are durable and made from materials that are resistant to scratches and most staining. Granite and Corian countertops are available in a wide range of colors and textures. Stainless steel is available in a number of finishes and textures, including a brushed finish or reverse hammered surface, which appears to be decorated with raised dots. On the other hand, concrete allows for the incorporation of various colors, textures and even patterned imprints, like floral designs. Concrete countertops can also be embedded with stones, seashells and other items that interest you.
Soapstone, which was used in lab classrooms, is known for its heavy-duty durability and works well as the current trend is a honed finish (without a high gloss shine like most granite countertops). Soapstone is generally dark gray in color and may darken and/or crack over time. It‘s susceptible to stains without polish, you can scratch it with your fingernail (many people don‘t mind that) and it‘s comparable in price to granite.
