The kitchen is one of the most functional and practical spaces in the home, with the majority of the items that are used within that space being stored or used in areas such as kitchen benches, coverings or kitchen countertops.

It is therefore crucial for kitchen countertops to be created with materials that are highly resistant and hygienic, while also being pleasing to the eye and suited to the needs of individual families.

There are a number of different options to choose from in regards to the material to use in a kitchen countertop.

One of these options is steatite, also referred to as soapstone, which is particularly resistant to acidic products. One of the major advantages of using steatite as a kitchen countertop material is its durability, with it being one of the longest lasting of such materials.

On the other hand it is not as resistant to heat as is the case with some other natural stones like granite, and requires a lot of maintenance in the form of much polishing and lubrication.

Another option for kitchen countertops is glass. This can be quite safe when the countertop is made out of tempered glass and can also be treated with antibacterial solutions and treatments to prevent staining. There are a number of options for glass countertops including colored, textured, transparent and translucent.

Glass countertops are easy to maintain and clean and also capable of combining with nearly every kind of finish, but are quite expensive.
