Is Solid Surface A Good Choice For Kitchen?

As tempting as it may be to choose a countertop based primarily on looks alone, the durability of a material, maintenance, and cost are all major factors to consider when it comes to selecting countertops for your kitchen remodeling. As of today, the market if flooded with a variety of options when it comes to kitchen tops. Therefore, making an informed decision on the type of countertop to choose for your kitchen is as important as the remodeling process itself. Well, countertop surfaces range from popular butcher block to rare materials such as terrazzo and glass. Having a solid surface for your kitchen can be affordable only if you have knowledge of the right place to acquire them or seek the services of an excellent solid surface specialist. What makes choosing the right surface a difficult task for many is that it not only requires design, but also a keen eye for choosing the right material to go a long way.

Advantages of solid surface

What makes solid surface kitchen table top/counter top ideal for your kitchen is that it is made of polyester resin. Besides, it can be tinted on a variety of colors and designs and can be molded to various sizes to fit any type of kitchen. Several individuals and homeowners prefer solid surface for kitchen tops because it is less expensive than granite but can provide a similar look. The fact that it is a solid surface means that there are no edges or lines where mildew, moulds, or any type of bacteria can thrive. In today’s market, you can find solid surface made of acrylic.

One of the surfaces that are easy to clean and maintain is the solid surface. However, make sure you wipe the surface clean before use just to be sure that you have removed the dirt and dust particles that may be covering the tabletop. Regular cleaning of the tabletop will also ensure that bacteria prying on a dirty environment do not contaminate your food. In case you scratch the surface of your countertop, you can fix it using a sand paper. Moreover, tabletops come with a warranty and you can always seek the help of your manufacturer when you need to.

As earlier mentioned, refrain from placing any heating pans or elements on solid surface, as they cannot stand heat. Even though tabletops made from a mixture of polymer and resin are strong and sturdy, they generally react with high temperatures. The polymer and resin mixture has been around for a while and ranks among the most preferred materials in making tabletops. It is always fashionable as you can design it the way you want and with colors you prefer. For instance, you can use colors that complement that of your kitchen if you want a perfect blend between the two. You can also pick colors that act as accents to your entire kitchen’s color.

The price of solid surface for kitchen varies depending on the type you want. The wide range of solid surface features the basic colored, which are somehow priced less than their granite look-alike counterparts are or with intricate designs. However, a common quality that both types share is durability; they are generally of good quality and can last for over a decade if well taken care of. Moreover, it requires minimum maintenance; therefore, would not be a challenge for the homeowner.

Even though it is strong, you should take extreme precaution when handling very hot substances and it cannot take extreme beating like granite. This is because granites are products of the toughest stones while acrylic forms the fundamental material for solid surface. As a Singapore resident and with all these in mind, you can now make up your mind if solid surface for kitchen is a good choice.
