What Kitchen Countertop Materials Fit Your Lifestyle?

Categories: Blog, Home Buying Tips | Posted: March 29, 2019

Modern kitchens offer so many opportunities for homeowners to bring their unique style to life. But kitchen countertops need to both look good and be functional. You’ll want to consider cost, durability, and maintenance needs when deciding on what material you’ll use.

There are, of course, dozens of options for your kitchen countertops. Depending on your style and handiness, you can choose from any number of beautiful, stylish, or budget-friendly materials. Here’s a brief overview of a few options to give you an idea of what to consider:

Granite

Natural stone like granite looks beautiful and brings elegance to any kitchen space. It’s a popular choice.

Despite granite’s strength and durability, it is porous and requires sealing before it’s usable in a kitchen. It is easy to maintain once it has been sealed and correctly installed.

Granite comes in a number of colors and styles, and imperfections add a unique element to any kitchen. They’re relatively maintenance-free, as long as you’re careful with its installation and treatment.

Quartz

If you’re looking for an easy-to-maintain countertop with endless variety, quartz is the way to go. Quartz countertops are made of crushed quartz with a resin binder.

They’re resistant to stains and scratches and are incredibly resilient.

These countertops fit together seamlessly and come in virtually any color or pattern, including natural stone. If you want a fresh contemporary look to countertops, here’s a great option.

 

This is by no means an exhaustive list of kitchen countertop materials available. However, these options give you an idea of what to expect. You can choose countertops that are easy to maintain and cost-effective, or you can go for something more natural that adds a beautiful element to your kitchen. Go for whatever option fits your budget, fashion, and lifestyle.
