Decisions, Decisions: How to Choose the Best Solid Surface Countertops

Posted by & filed under Solid Surface Countertops.

As one of the best at installing solid surface countertops in the Minneapolis/ St Paul Metro, we have often given advice to our customers about how to choose the best solid surface countertops. We have also answered plenty of questions about this good-looking but durable countertop material.

One of the most basic questions about solid surface countertops is: what’s it made out of? Solid surface countertops are made out of a petroleum-based product that is similar to plastic. The material is a combination of acrylics or polyester resins along with an inert filler material. The reason these types of countertops are so popular is because they are easily installed and repaired, but they are also a great complement to any kitchen.

However, when choosing the best solid surface countertops, you don’t just want to look at the aesthetics. You also want to choose a company that has plenty of experience installing these countertops, like Imperial Counters. A company like ours is familiar with all of the ins and outs of making sure proper measurements are taken and the solid surface countertops are fitted and installed properly. This is not a task for do-it-yourselfers.

Take a look at your kitchen. If your cabinets are a lighter shade, you might want to consider a darker shade for your solid surface countertops. And the reverse is true as well – light countertops look good when paired with darker cabinetry. You will also want to consider the color of your kitchen’s walls (or what they will be after you are done with your renovations!). Also, stop and think about what color your appliances are, plus any decorations you might want to put up, like curtains, pictures, etc.
