How to Choose the Right Materials for Your Countertops

Choosing the right countertop style for your kitchen can seem like a difficult task. There are so many materials available that it can be confusing to find one that you really like and which fits your style.

How to Choose the Right Materials for Your Countertops

There are many kinds of materials that can be used for countertops. Concrete, solid surface, laminate, and wooden countertops are all common choices. However, nothing beats natural stone when it comes to beautiful designs, durability, flexibility, and choice.

Granite, for example, comes in many colors, and you can use different finishes to create different designs. In fact, there are almost 3,000 different colors available.

The cost of granite will vary depending on the type of granite you are using and where it is being imported from. Granite with rare colors or veins will cost more. Granite, when polished and sealed properly, is especially durable and won’t be damaged by heat or stains. However, it does neat to be resealed every once in a while.

Another option is marble. Marble is stunning and many people prefer the way it looks over granite. However, it is not the best option when it comes to cost and durability. It is more likely to be scratched and is harder to repair.

Quartz is another option that is a lot more durable than marble. It can chip, so try to get rounded edges. However, it is very durable and won’t be damaged or cracked easily.

You can also get limestone countertops. Soapstone is another option. It won’t get damaged by heat easily, but it can get nicked or cracked. However, it is not difficult to repair.

Ordering stone countertops is easy. Just make sure that you are getting one that is of the right thickness and the right measurements. Contact us for professional advice on which material is best for your kitchen.
