Low-maintenance countertops are a must during this busy holiday season. No one wants to spend any more time in the kitchen than absolutely necessary. Here are five countertop styles that will save you time and stress.

Countertops that Will Save You Time on Cleanup


Soapstone countertops are resistant to cooking byproducts, like bacteria and stains, and it’s virtually unaffected by heat which means you don’t have to worry about needing enough hot pads this holiday season. The only downside is that soapstone countertops can darken over time, so if you’re worried about your countertops no longer complimenting your kitchen cabinets, that is a factor to consider.


Laminate countertops are easy on the eyes and on your wallet. This style comes in a variety of colors and is non-porous, meaning you won’t have to worry about any fancy cleaning methods, just a good old-fashioned sponge and some soap. You also don’t need to worry about any particular sealants or polishes because laminate countertops don’t require any refinishing after use over time.

Recycled Glass

If you’re active on social media, then you know that resin is very popular right now. Recycled glass countertops make the most of this trend by crushing glass and embedding it in clear resin to create a stunning, eco-friendly countertop style. These countertops are low-maintenance and perfect for the holidays since they can be easily cleaned after each holiday meal.


All signs point to concrete as being a big design choice in 2022. Concrete is durable, low-maintenance, and sleek. This material comes in every color and shape imaginable, and can be customized to fit any space. Concrete countertops are also heat-resistant and durable for years to come. The only downside is that you have to seal your counters in order to keep them clean.


When you think of a shiny, sleek kitchen, we bet quartz countertops come to mind. Quartz countertops are little pieces of quartz stone bound together with resin. These countertops often mirror natural stone countertops but are much easier to clean. As a bonus, when you try Quest Interiors’ Power Buy Program, you can explore colors and edges without breaking the bank.
