Which countertop to choose

by miamigardens

Repair in the kitchen is done once and for life. Or almost all. Therefore, it is so important to choose the highest quality components for kitchen furniture.

If cladding, doors and handles can be changed without any problems, then the countertop can be replaced only by completely dismantling, and even better by acquiring a new headset. That is, the matter is not simple and expensive.

So let’s choose a countertop right now.

The most common and cheap countertops are from laminated layered plastic and chipboard. They hold perfectly in a humid environment and when processing with aggressive cleaning agents, maintaining their appearance. Quite persistent from the appearance of scratches.


They are very fond of furniture manufacturers, since it is not necessary to make them for a certain kitchen, at any time you can cut if it turns out that it turns out that they have not guessed a little with the size.

In addition, plastic and laminated chipboard can be made of any color, including for any natural stone.

However, a more interesting and expensive option is artificial stone countertops.

Artificial stone countertops

Artificial stone is produced in sheets and one large seamless countertop for a specific kitchen is cut out of it. A huge plus for housewives in seamlessness – you do not have to wipe the dirt in these very seams. That is, such countertops are more hygienic and can be used not only in the kitchen, but also operating, other medical premises requiring maximum sterility.

It is not possible to put a scratch on a countertop made of artificial stone. This material is more strong and durable than plastic or chipboard.

So what to choose – cheaper or better? Of course, you decide. By how much you plan to spend. By how long you plan to use this kitchen. Well, other considerations.

I would be glad if you share your decision in the comments.
