Countertops for a Low-Maintenance Kitchen

Since kitchen countertops are used every day, they should be both durable and aesthetically pleasing. For easier and smoother use, many homeowners are looking for low-maintenance options. There are plenty of countertops available in the market. Here, we will help you decide which low-maintenance countertop surface best fits your kitchen space.  

Countertops for a Low-Maintenance Kitchen


Laminate countertops are popular among homeowners because of their affordability, low maintenance and colorful patterns. Not only are they made from a non-porous material, but laminate also does not require sealing or refinishing. You can also customize your laminate to look like granite or any kind of component – all for an affordable price. 

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel countertops like laminate do not need sealing or refinishing. They’re also very easy to clean; all you need are mild soap products. As one of the most hygienic materials, stainless steel countertops work best in the kitchen, especially because they won’t be stained by food or juice. You also don’t have to worry about hot pots and pans since stainless steel is able to resist heat.  


Quartz countertops, also known as engineered stone, are also ideal for a low-maintenance kitchen. They have the look and performance of stone, such as granite or marble, but without the setbacks and weaknesses. Like the aforementioned two countertops, quartz countertops are non-porous and will not stain. They’re also very easy to clean and durable, which makes them a great choice for your kitchen remodeling project. 

Solid Surface

Solid surface countertops have many types, including Corian® and Soapstone. They are resistant to chemicals or stain damages and hot spots. To keep them in great shape, you can clean them with only soap and water. In the rare event that you notice a scratch, the scratch can be sanded out and the appearance restored as the pigment goes through the entire countertop. You can also choose between different textures for a more customized look.
