Stainless Steel Countertops
For the busy cook or ultra-chic homeowner, the stainless steel countertop had modern appeal and a sleek overall finish. Durable and resistant to stains, stainless steel countertops provide a gorgeous overall finish in a contemporary kitchen and are also a top choice for someone who spends a lot of time preparing food.
While the flat stainless steel countertop is certainly a beautiful option in many kitchen areas, the material can also come in a number of finishes and textures, including a brushed finish or reverse hammered surface, which appears to be decorated with raised dots. The surface pairs well with a variety of cabinetry and themes, including white, light and dark wood and bold colors. For example, a kitchen that has been decorated with white cabinets and a simple marble tile floor would look beautiful with a stainless steel countertop.
When cleaning the countertops, it is important to avoid harsh cleaners in favor of a more mild soap. Use paper towels or a soft cloth towel to clean up regular spills. A stainless steel countertop will also benefit from the application of a stainless steel cleaner once or twice per week. Simply follow the directions on the bottle for instructions. Consider also protecting the countertop with a few drops of mineral oil that can be wiped on using a soft towel. This will help keep the surface in top shape.
