CHOOSING THE RIGHT COUNTERTOP:

You’ve just finished a kitchen or bathroom renovation and now you have to pick the perfect countertops! So, how do you know which is best for you? Classy Closets offers a wide variety of countertop options and we can help you pick the right one for you. 

SOLID SURFACE COUNTERTOPS:

Solid surface countertops have been a popular choice for home buyers for over 50 years. When buyers may not be interested in laminate products, but are looking for an affordable countertop material, solid surface is often a great choice!

Solid surface countertops are designed with man-made materials, and are often used for seamless countertop installations. Solid surfaces will lack the depth of real stone options, like granite and quartz, but resemble stone much more than laminate products. 

The idea behind solid surface countertops was to have a surface that looked reasonably like natural stone, but unlike stone, would be non-porous.

WHY CHOOSE SOLID SURFACE?

PROS:

  • Non-Porous: No surface is completely non-porous. However, tile, quartz, and solid surface come as close as any countertop material. Solid surface’s extremely low porosity keeps bacteria away, promoting a cleaner and more sanitary countertop.
  • Price: Solid surface begins at a mid-range price point.
  • Homogeneous: Unlike laminate or tile, solid surface material goes all the way through. As a result, it fares better after damage than a multi-layer product, such as laminate.
  • Easy to Repair: Yes, solid surface will scratch if you cut on it. But with an orbital sander and fine grain sandpaper, even the homeowner can sand down scratches.

CONS:

  • Scratches Easily: Homeowners who have solid surface countertops should be extra careful to use cutting boards, as solid surface is relatively soft and can mar.
  • Heat Intolerant: Solid surface can hold up against temperature of up to 212 degrees F, but not higher. This means that hot pans should not be set directly on a solid surface countertop.
