So you’re ready to start down the path of creating your dream kitchen. When it comes to countertops, there are many colors and designs. Not only that, there are several material options to choose from. Here are a couple of things to consider when picking out your new countertops.
QUARTZ: This stone is nonporous so it will not harbor bacteria — making it a great choice for a kitchen countertop. It’s also easy to clean, has a strong resistance to staining, and never needs to be resealed.
GRANITE: Granite has been the standard for many years because it’s a natural stone that is easy to clean, durable, and resistant to heat and scratches. However, you will have to have it sealed and maintained so it can continue its durability and beauty.
BUTCHER BLOCK: Wanting to create a vintage feel in your kitchen? Then perhaps you should consider butcher block countertops. These thick wood slabs offer a smooth and natural surface to compliment your kitchen, but they will also need to be maintained and sealed to prevent damage.
LAMINATE: Sometimes, your situation requires you consider laminate as an option. They are an inexpensive, low-maintenance option that is available in many styles and colors. However, they aren’t resistant to heat, and they can scratch.
As you can see, there are many things to consider when it comes to picking out your countertop material. These are just a few of the many types of countertop surfaces available.
