Care of Bamboo is extremely simple. To keep these eco-friendly countertops in tip-top shape, just clean them with a solution of mild soap and warm water. As these counters have a finish applied, it’s important not to set hot items directly on your bamboo countertops. Because bamboo is basically a wood product, you should avoid cutting directly on the counter surface as well. Both the finish and the counter surface can be damage with knives. Not only the green properties, but the beauty and reasonable cost make bamboo an attractive option for your countertops. Bamboo is a beautiful and a cost-effective option to traditional wood and the more expensive composite or natural stone counters.
In addition to the cost of the materials, you need to consider the cost of installation of the material you choose for your kitchen countertops. Most countertop installations are best left to the experts, because they require special tools or knowledge for their proper installation. This is especially true for natural stone slab countertops and poured concrete countertops, because of the weight involved. For the do-it-yourselfer, tile countertops can be relatively easy to install, if you have a basic knowledge of tile installation.
Natural stones come in different colors, designs and varieties to satisfy the taste and requirements of the customer. Specifically granite countertops expose the natural beauty and originality of the natural stones in different colors and designs. Granite countertops are the prominent material required all the home owners and builders. Since granite is a durable material, most of the home owners and builders prefer to install granite countertops for their buildings. Granite countertops are highly a resistance material to heat, moisture, scratch, stain and spills. Even any stains or spills occur it can be easily removed using quality cleaning agents. Granite countertops add everlasting beauty to your houses with easy removal of scratches.
Portland cement is the binder that keeps concrete held together. Because traditional Portland cement is grey in color, it can have an effect on the overall look of the concrete countertop. If you are looking for a top that can be easily stained dark colors, or if you are wanting to leave the concrete countertops the natural, grey color, then regular Portland is the right choice for the project. However, if your concrete countertop is going to be white or light colors, or you need it to be easily dyed or stained, you may be better suited to choose a white Portland cement. It has the same binding properties as traditional Portland, only it is white in color when cured. White Portland is the only way to get a truly white concrete countertop.
