Looking to update your kitchen and do some modeling? Chances are the old formica countertops are looking aged, worn, and stained. But thanks to new options in countertops, customers now have colorful options to choose from or supplement their favorite look by using acrylic sheets as a backsplash around the kitchen.
These days acrylic sheets also come in every imaginable color, so finding something within a chosen color palette should not be difficult. Acrylic sheets are durable; they look nice, are non-porous, are extremely high-density and seem to copy the look of real marble countertops. Plus, acrylic sheets are cheaper than other countertop options.
Corian may also be an option
A Corian countertop may also be a great choice for a kitchen counter. Highly durable, corian is scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and resistant to sunlight and heat. It is also doesn’t promote bacteria or mildew.
Pair a corian countertop with an acrylic sheeting backsplash and you will have a kitchen that is highly functional and won’t be difficult to clean or maintain. The only disadvantage to corian is that it does show knife scratches. Thus, it is best to use a cutting board when cutting vegetables, meat, etc., on a corian surface.
Corian countertop repair is available
If any corian countertop is damaged, fixing it may be an easy DIY project - depending on damage. For blotchy areas, corian countertop repair is easy. Simply wash the affected area with soapy water or an ammonia-based cleaner that is not a window cleaner.
Corian countertop repair of minor scratches may be a little more difficult, as it requires special formulated cleaner and this repair will not remove deeper scratches. Avoid placing hot pans on any corian countertop and this will avoid the need for any repair in the future. Chemical spills on any corian counter can damage the finish and cause need for repair.
Are Corian countertop repairs cheap?
These countertop repairs are not cheap if there is extensive damage to the counter, such as a crack or deep scratches that require a professional. Depending on cost of repairs, it may be cheaper to simply buy a new countertop than repair the old one. If replacing a countertop, don’t be afraid to make some upgrades such as a corian kitchen sink.
Add water filtration system
If you are remodeling, why not add a kitchen sink with a high-grade filtration system made of acetal. What is acetal? Acetal is a thermoplastic that is used to make tubular parts, such as a filtration system and many other uses.
Since acetal is an extremely high-density material, it will not crack easily. This is what makes acetal ideal material to use for building water filtration tubes or even using acetal for certain car gear parts.
