The days around the 15th of September are the time when we usually focus more attention on children and students. However, in the last nearly 2 years of living under the sign of a worldwide Cauvin pandemic, we, along with our children, have been spending more and more time at home. That is why the environment we create and how consistent, safe and friendly it is for our children is not unimportant. We at AR Commerce, importer and retailer of Cimstone quartz engineered stone, have prepared some useful tips for you for a durable and safe kitchen environment.
If you have young children, spilling juice and food on the floor and elsewhere in the home are certainly not foreign to you. Sometimes the walls, tables and kitchen worktops become canvases for your little artists, sometimes no matter how young in age they are.
If you’re planning a renovation or preparing a new home in addition to the first day of school, it’s a good idea to consider some details about the different types of kitchen countertop materials and choose the right one to eliminate some risks. This, of course, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the style you’re aiming for. There are good enough and solid surfaces that are both very stylish and will withstand the treatment from children.
What questions you should ask yourself when choosing a “Child-friendly countertop”
Безопасен ли е материалът?
When it comes to children, safety is of the utmost importance. Maybe you’d rather not order wooden or glass countertops with kids running around the house. Some materials are more brittle, others more resistant. You need to make sure that the kids won’t hurt themselves on some of the sharp corners of the countertop while running around.
Издръжлив ли е материалът?
Children are children and will always make white. They will spill, they will dirty and they will break. That’s why you should ask yourself which are the most durable and unbreakable materials.
Кой материал е най-лесен за почистване?
Just because our kids are likely to create a mess in the kitchen, try to cook with us, draw and play with plasticine or clay on the countertop, doesn’t mean we won’t want our home to be clean and well maintained. This of course means daily care and cleaning. It is important, then, that cleaning is easy and quick. And this depends largely on the material of the countertop – it should not have a porous and rough structure, but a smooth, stain-resistant, easy to clean.
Ще харесвам ли плота и след като детето порасне?
You don’t have to choose one type of kitchen countertop material until the child is smaller and then change it. Choose a material that you will like and that will serve you for a long time to come. One of the most suitable materials meeting all the above requirements is definitely the Cimstone quartz technical stone imported to Bulgaria by AR Commerce.
Quartz is one of the hardest materials in nature, accordingly the stone is extremely resistant. But at the same time, smooth, glossy, offering a wide range of colour variations and easy to clean and operate.
If you’re looking for a countertop designed to withstand everyday scratches, spills, and stains, quartz countertops are the best option for your home. You won’t have to worry about the integrity or appearance of your countertops.
From there, you can review your favorite kitchen design trends and start creating the kitchen of your dreams.
However, when it comes to choosing a countertop edge, consider something that is safe and rounded. If your kids are playing, you don’t want anyone accidentally bumping into a rough edge on the countertop. The types of treatments that are available in Cimstone technical quartz stone are varied and you can view them here. They can certainly meet your preferred interior style and, at the same time, be safe.
