Acrylic countertops resist stains, and spills are easy to clean with just a cloth, soap and water. They are available in a vast range of colors and patterns to coordinate with any kitchen or bath. Acrylic countertops are non-porous and are very hygienic when it comes to preventing the spread of germs in the kitchen or bathroom. Water and other liquids will not be absorbed or stain the material like natural stones.
Acrylic countertops are very strong. You rarely need to worry about denting or scratching. If there is damage, a repair is quick and affordable. Plus they can be created in any shape without a premium for curved contours.
