Kitchen Cabinet Countertops

Choosing a kitchen cabinets countertop can be fun or perplexing.  Besides the familiar laminate countertops that have been the industry kitchen cabinets standard for decades, we now also have a multitude of solid core, stone and butcher block countertops to choose from.  Which one is right for you?  That depends on the budget and what your needs are.

Laminate countertops

The typical laminate countertops for kitchen cabinets now are up to 400% more durable than they were just ten years ago.  They are more resistant to scratching scuffing and burning.  They also come in a huge variety of colors, textures and patterns and finishes.

Let's talk about finishes.  There are three main types of finishes.  Gloss, semi-gloss or satin and textured.

Gloss finish is very shiny.  It can mimic with great success, stone like polished granite and marble on your kitchen cabinets.  It is, though more durable than in the past, the finish that is most prone to scratching and scuffing.  It also can show wipe marks more often.  So, using this finish above your kitchen cabinets in front of a window or strong light is not usually a good idea.  Using a light color will help hide wipe marks.  This is a finish you would prefer in an area where your kitchen cabinets get the least amount of use.  Using counter protectors on your kitchen cabinets is a good idea with this finish.

Semi-gloss or satin finishes on your countertops are more durable and easier to keep clean because they don't show wipe marks as easily and are more resistant to scratching and scuffing.  This finish is the most popular for today's kitchen cabinets.  Expect to get many years of service out of a laminate counter with this finish on you kitchen cabinets countertops.

Textured finishes on your  countertops can add a lot of interest, but are harder to clean if the texture is very deep.  In a deep texture, dirt and grime can settle into the bottom of the grooves, wrinkles or patterns and be a nuisance to clean.  Another problem in high use areas is the tendency to wear on the high spots of the texture.  This finish on your kitchen cabinets countertops works best in a low light, warm setting like bars and game rooms.

Solid core/surface countertops

Solid core or solid surface countertops are used mainly where you want to eliminate any visible seams in your.  They are as durable or more durable than laminate kitchen cabinets countertops but lack the obvious seam line that laminate kitchen cabinets counters inherently have.  Sinks and drop levels can be incorporated into one visibly seamless kitchen cabinets countertop.  They can also be repaired.  This is because the color and pattern goes all the way through the surface.  Expect to pay more for this kitchen cabinets countertop material.

Butcher block countertops

Wooden kitchen cabinets countertops are obviously not as durable as other materials.  So, don't expect them to be.  But, they actually get better looking as they get older.  As scratches and wear begin to take their toll, butcher block counters become more interesting and warm feeling.  They are re-finishable and can last for many years.  Still use a cutting board for slicing meat and vegetables.  It's much easier to scrub the bacteria out of a cutting board than out of your kitchen cabinets counter.  There is some labor involved in the upkeep of butcher block kitchen cabinets countertops.  Follow the manufacturers recommendations on care.  This material goes well with country or rustic lodge style kitchens.

Stone countertops

Stone kitchen cabinets countertops usually are your most expensive but most durable.  Nothing says wealth and class like stone or marble on your kitchen cabinets.  The most important aspect of stone is the installation and finishing.  Choose a contractor with lots of experience and a excellent reputation.
