The Benefits of a Porcelain Countertops

If you’re building a new home or renovating your current space, you may be in the market for some new kitchen countertops. In that case, you’re likely weighing which material to choose. While there’s no shortage of quality choices out there, you should consider porcelain as an option.

Porcelain countertops come with many positive traits that will improve both the look of your home and your quality of life in the kitchen area. Here are just a few benefits of choosing porcelain countertops:


Porcelain is stronger than basically every other popular countertop material, making it extremely durable. When you purchase a porcelain countertop, you’re making a long-term investment. It’s also quite resistant to both scratches and heat, so you can cut up meat and handle hot pots and pans without worrying about long-term damage. Another positive: it’s resistant to water and absorbs less than one percent of it, so you don’t have to stress about immediately cleaning up spills.


Porcelain countertops can feature a variety of different colors and patterns. Since they are an engineered stone, these patterns and colors can be added during the fabrication process. In fact, you can really make the countertop look like the material of your choice. Like the look of a marble countertop, but want something more durable? That’s possible with a porcelain countertop.


Porcelain countertops are non-porous and stain resistant, meaning all you need to do to keep them clean is the occasional once over with soap and water. This also means they don’t require any sealing. And as far as planning purposes go, don’t worry about where the countertop is place in relation to the windows as porcelain is UV ray resistant as well.
