Whether you’re building a home from the ground up, or are investing in a kitchen remodel, a big decision will be about which type of kitchen countertops to install. Ideally, you’ll install countertops that provide a winning combination of aesthetic and utilitarian benefits. If you’re struggling to make your decision, an experienced kitchen remodel expert can help you determine which kind of countertops will best fit your needs and budget. Here’s a look at five popular options for kitchen countertops.
Although granite is quite costly, it is highly desirable because each countertop features its own unique natural pattern. Granite is also very durable and resists scratching. If you have children (or a clumsy spouse), you’ll want to bear in mind that spills can stain granite somewhat easily.
Marble is also expensive, but many homeowners consider it worth the cost because of its opulent appearance. And if you’re a baking enthusiast, you’ll appreciate marble countertops because they remain below room temperature, which creates a great surface for rolling out the perfect dough.
Quartz countertops provide strong aesthetic appeal, but even greater functional benefits because they are so durable. They will hold up strongly against scratches, stains, heat, and acids.
For a particularly budget-friendly option, you can go with laminate countertops, which replicate the look of more expensive countertop options.
Wood countertops offer a rustic appearance as well as utilitarian value. Many culinary enthusiasts prefer wood countertops because they are the most heat-resistant type of countertops and are a great option when cooking extravagant meals that require many hot pots and pans.
