How to Choose the Best Counter Top Material for Your Kitchen and Bathrooms

Many people overlook the importance of countertops until it is right in their faces and they have to deal with permanently stained, scratched or scorched countertops that just won’t get any better. This usually happens when people fail to see which types of countertops are good for their home. If you could analyze exactly how to choose the best countertop material for your kitchen and bathrooms, you will be able to keep your home well-maintained.

Let’s have a look at some of the things that you should consider when selecting material for kitchen and bathroom countertops in your home.

1.     Keep in Mind the Number of People in Your Home

It is always prudent to consider which type of countertops will be comfortable for the number of people in your home. If you have a small family, you can easily install marble, soapstone or limestone countertops in the kitchen and bathroom of your home. If fewer people would be using it, it would not get stained much. It could get cleaned easily. However, if you were living in a large family it would not be a very good choice. Since many people would be using it regularly the stains would be much harder to remove from this type of surface.

2.     Keep in Mind the Presence of Kids and Pets in the House

If you have kids and pets in your home then your countertops should be such that they accommodate them. Many kids climb over the kitchen countertops while their moms cook. Likewise, many kids climb countertops in bathrooms while hot water fills into their bathtubs. Countertops that get over slippery on the slightest touch of water can endanger the safety of your kids.

On the other hand, you would want to keep your cat away from your kitchen countertop to keep your food safe. Use rounded countertops in the kitchen that won’t help your cat climb over it.

3.     Remember the Time It Might Take to Clean Up

Always choose the countertop material which won’t take all your time in cleaning. Solid surface countertops are one of the good choices for the material that can be cleaned easily. With these, you can use some chemical cleaner to leave it shining as good as new in a matter of minutes.

4.     Match the Material with the Rest of Your Interior

Another important factor in choosing a countertop for your bathroom and kitchen is that whether it matches the interior of your home. For instance, you have a tiled floor and you go for wooden countertops. It won’t go with the overall look and presentation of your home. With tiled flooring, you can have marble countertops or stone surfaced countertops for the best look.
