The 4 Best Low-Maintenance Kitchen Countertops



The kitchen countertop is the centerpiece of your kitchen space. Apart from enhancing the looks of your kitchen and your home’s total resale value, it is a functional element. Fortunately, there are a lot of kitchen countertop options on the market that are easy to maintain. What’s more, they come in many colors, styles and textures. 

In this post, a trusted specialist in kitchen design and remodeling, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville, shares four of the best low-maintenance kitchen countertops on the market today.

  1. Soapstone. Soapstone countertops are a great low-maintenance material to consider for their inherent durability. In fact, some soapstone countertops that were constructed in the 1800s are still being used today! They are also pliable and crack-resistant compared to other popular countertop options. If your primary concerns are chemical stains and hot spots, then soapstone will ease your worries. You can purchase these countertops at $55 to $100 per square foot.
  2. Laminate. According to kitchen remodel experts, laminate countertops are among the most popular materials since they’re affordable, durable and require little to no maintenance. Since laminate is not porous, it doesn’t require much effort to clean. You don’t need to have it resealed or refinished, and it can mimic the look of granite without the drawbacks or cost. You can install quality laminate countertops at around $20 to $50 per square foot.
  3. Stainless steel. Stainless steel countertops are used in commercial kitchens around the world. This is because they do not require sealing or refinishing, and can be simply cleaned using mild soap. Stainless steel won’t be affected by food spills and offers inherent heat resistance. The average price range of quality stainless steel countertops is $75 to $140 per square foot. 
  4. Quartz. If your focus is on sprucing up your kitchen, then quartz is the way to go. It’s composed of natural stone and resin, featuring a nonporous surface that makes it easy to clean while being resistant to stains. It also mimics marble and granite countertops without the hefty price and drawbacks. You can purchase quality quartz countertops at $100 to $185 per square foot.
