Since Zinc-made countertops do not rust therefore it looks great for a long time and this is one of its major benefits, compared to the other popular choices of the countertops. Even the stainless steel countertops get affected by rust, but zinc alternatives are rust free. However, these countertops might get discolored with time, but that is not a problem as it can be easily polished and it will again look like new. By using electric power polisher, wireless drills or sanders, these countertops can be polished. However, it is not advisable to polish the countertop when it is really not needed as the zinc might get weaker.
Next we have synthetic solid surface countertops. The most widely known solid surface countertop product is Corian. Solid surface countertops are composed primarily of plastics with flecks of glass, plastic and other materials to provide color and pattern variations. While solid surface countertops do not look like natural stone, the do provide a seamless look. Because solid surface countertops can be custom fabricated to near any size and specification, long or oddly shaped countertop areas can be covered with one solid piece. Solid surface countertops are scratch and scorch- resistant, and can be repaired if damaged. Many people believe that solid surface countertops are a ’step below’ granite from an aesthetic perspective, and therefore its pricing may surprise you. Pricing for solid surface countertops; starting at about $40 per linear foot; is actually higher than many granite styles!
If your budget still allows it but you do not want to have the hassle of maintaining a solid granite kitchen countertop, the next option would be engineered stone kitchen countertops. These are manmade and are much more resilient than solid granite. Market brands like DuPont and Siltstone carry many variations. The overall appearance and design of your kitchen can be influenced by your kitchen countertop. Therefore it is best that you consider not only what your personal choice of kitchen countertop is but also the kind of countertop that is most appropriate for your kitchen. Your budget is another important thing to consider when choosing a kitchen countertop.
