If you’re looking to install new countertops for your kitchen, then you have to consider if there are children present at home. If you don’t choose the proper material for your kitchen countertop, any sudden mishap by your kids may cause irreversible surface damage, especially if the countertop is not designed for such an incident.
While it’s true that these accidents are unavoidable, professional kitchen remodeling companies such as Envy Home Services still recommend choosing a material that can withstand the normal wear and tear brought about by your active and lively children. As such, we recommend some of the common countertop materials that both look good as well as withstand any level of wear and tear in a home.
Recent innovations in technology has actually made granite a good-looking choice for homeowners with children. New sealants applied to these countertops virtually eliminate problems your children may suddenly do, from accidentally spilling juice to doing art projects right on top of its surface. When properly sealed, granite countertops become non-porous, so it’s really easy to clean. You don’t even need harsh cleaning agents so you can also protect your children.
This is not to be mistaken with granite countertops, although it can be related to this type of category since solid-surface countertops are actually patterned after stone or quartz countertops. Popular solid-surface countertops include materials such as Corian and swanstone, and are also available in many options and patterns. As one of the most reliable kitchen renovation contractors in the area, we highly recommend this if you want a sturdy and kid-friendly countertop that can go well with any style of kitchen, be it traditional or contemporary.
This type of material is still very much popular for both kitchen and bathroom countertops since it’s both affordable and kid-friendly. It’s also available in a wide variety of colors and pattern choices. The surface itself is non-porous so it won’t easily retain any bacteria and can be cleaned with mild soap and a cloth or sponge. It’s impact-resistant and won’t stain easily as well, so it’s basically childproof.
