10 Reasons why stainless steel countertops will give great benefit to your home and / or restaurant along with bragging rights for the following:
Resistant and durable to just about everything.
This countertop does not stain! You don't have to fear beets, acids, wine, or food coloring anymore.
Stainless counters make it perfect for families with young children that love to work alongside mom and dad to prepare a meal.
Bacteria, mold and other common germs don't stand a chance with stainless. Why? Because stainless has a non-porous surface, which means that no liquids or substances can penetrate into the material. The opportunity for peace of mind is tremendous so you can enjoy a completely hygienic surface for preparing food.
Feel free to put down all of your pots and pans without worrying about damage. The countertop will heat up in the area where the pot is placed but doesn't damage the stainless. The only way to affect the surface of countertop would be to pour molten lava on top of it, and I can't imagine this will happen.
These countertops can be made to custom fit your kitchen or restaurant. You'll end up with a one of a kind and elegant countertop that looks absolutely brilliant.
Clean up is a breeze with a seamless sink installed. Many people choose to have their stainless sink welded and polished in which makes clean up easy because there are no seams to collect debris and grow bacteria.
Stainless countertops offer a unique look that melds perfectly into modern kitchens. Because the stainless steel is also neutral in color, it can be used in any kitchen design style. Even the most common kitchen decor will welcome a stainless steel countertop without a problem.
Creates a bigger kitchen! By working with stainless as countertops, it reflect various surfaces and lighting in your kitchen to create the illusion that the room is much larger and brighter. Proper lighting will be key if this is your goal.
And last but not least, they look awesome!
When you first purchase your stainless steel countertop it will be perfect looking. However, you need to be aware that this will change. After some wear and tear your first scratch is going to happen, and when it does you're going to be very upset. Don't worry though, it's going to get better. In fact, these scratches should be seen as the defining features of your new countertop.
Over time with new scratched, it starts to patina and in the process becomes much better looking with more character. If you want to see for yourself what this will look like, take a trip down to Lowes or Home Depot and look at the paint section counter. That is an extreme example but gives you an idea of what wear and tear look like. Restaurant kitchen tables will also give a good idea of how it will eventually look. With this said, before considering a stainless countertop you'll want to visualize this type of look in your kitchen and ask yourself is that what I want. I'm telling you this because we don't want to just sell a countertop, we want people to be happy with their choice.
To sum up – Stainless is an incredible material for both household and commercial use. When it comes to inviting this metal into your home, it will all come down to personal preference. Ask yourself – is stainless the right fit for me? In our experience, people say yes a lot because they like the look, the durability, and sanitary benefits.
