We boldly declare that the kitchen is the main place in the house for the hostess. Each apartment owner has her own concept of a perfectly equipped kitchen. Of course, not only aesthetics are important here, but also comfort and functionality. Nobody wants to face the inconvenience of making the wrong choice every day.
What the top should look like
Sooner or later, people face the problem of which countertop to choose for their kitchen. Many nuances should be taken into account here: from material capabilities to material properties. The first thing to focus on: durability, ease of care and ease of use.
But other factors play an equally significant role, for example:
resistance to moisture and high temperatures;
ability to withstand mechanical stress;
environmentally friendly material;
possibility to restore the surface;
do not react to detergents and chemically aggressive substances.
Materials for making countertops
Consider the specifics of the most popular materials in this capacity.
Only varnishing and careful care will help such a surface last long enough. After all, interaction with moisture is detrimental to wood, because mold microorganisms begin to develop. Poor chemical and heat resistance make solid wood an unfortunate choice for a kitchen countertop.
Laminated chipboard and MDF
There are not so many poles in materials, but the cheapness of such products attracts people. Chipboard surfaces emit harmful toxic compounds. Both materials are unstable to heat, moisture, acids, and detergents, making your countertop last long enough.
Granite and Marble
Natural stone is one of the most durable and expensive materials. But granite is very difficult to process and install, and marble is considered a porous mineral. It absorbs moisture, so fungal microorganisms quickly begin to multiply on it. Stone countertop prices are such that they are worth choosing when you are ready to spend a significant amount.
