Your countertops, no matter which room they are installed in, need to balance durability and practicality as a working surface against aesthetic considerations as a large surface area that dominates the space that they are installed in. Acrylic is a specific type of countertop material that has a number of benefits that make it an ideal choice either for new home construction or for kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Understanding what some of the advantages associated with acrylic countertops are can help you figure out if they are the right fit for your project.
One of the largest advantages associated with acrylic countertops over other types of materials, specifically natural stone, is the fact that they are synthetically made, which means that they can be easily molded into a variety of shapes and given a wide range of different colors and finishes. This means that acrylic countertops can be easily made to fit into tight and irregular spaces and that they can also easily match an existing interior design aesthetic in the room that they are installed in.
Another significant advantage associated with acrylic countertops is the fact that they are extremely easy to clean and maintain. They are non-absorbent, able to withstand exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals, and have minimal seams and a smooth surface that makes removing food particles, toothpaste, and other gunk and debris which may build up a very simple process. It's non-absorbent nature also makes acrylic highly resistant to staining and discoloration.
Beyond being relatively low maintenance, acrylic countertops are very easily repaired if their surface becomes scuffed or nicked by sharp edges and heavy objects. Since acrylic is a single material all the way through the countertop, the area can be simply sanded down and then polished to restore the appearance of your counters at a much lower cost than having the entire countertop ripped up and replaced.
Finally, the last major advantage of choosing to install acrylic countertops is the fact that they are extremely easy to install. This is due to two factors: firstly, acrylic is relatively lightweight, which makes handling and installation a straightforward process, but secondly, and perhaps much more importantly, is the fact that acrylic does not require base support. This is because such support is built into the countertop itself, without having to use other materials or engage in a lengthy construction process – speeding up installation and ensuring that you can enjoy your new countertops sooner.
