Countertop Materials: Which One Best Fits Your Kitchen?

The countertops in your kitchen space are one of its few aesthetic pieces, so it’s important that you pick the right one that’s pretty to look at. Countertops are more than just designer set pieces though, and you should also think of how well they will perform, as a material, in your kitchen. Handyman Connection of Alpharetta discusses more.

Countertop Materials

Granite and Quartz

Granite is arguably the most common and popular countertop material since it combines strength and beauty in one neat and attractive package. Granite is a natural stone and boasts outstanding durability on top of water and moisture resilience. Because of this though, it’s one of the more expensive countertop materials available.

Quartz is a good alternative to granite if you want similar durability and water resistance that sports a different look. Also known as Engineered Stone, it is made with roughly a 93% concentration of quartz crystals, and is a popular choice for traditional homes.

Laminate and Concrete

Laminate countertops are the most affordable choice, and are popular for traditional and contemporary homes alike. Laminate is a versatile material, and these countertops are equally at home in your bath spaces as they are in your kitchen. It has respectable durability and water resistance, and has the widest possible range of colors and patterns to choose from.

Concrete is one of the newer types of countertops that recently appeared on the market a few years ago. Contrary to their name, most concrete countertops are surprisingly lightweight. This makes them easy to install. The material itself is very durable, but they are almost as expensive as quartz and granite.

Marble and Tile

Both marble and tile countertops are excellent choices if you want a classy and uniform look in your kitchen. These two are the materials you should go for if you want a countertop that’s tailor-made for your kitchen space. These two boast high durability and waterproofing, but they do require more general cleaning and maintenance – particularly with their grout lines.
