Kitchen Renovation Tips: How to Choose a Kitchen Countertop in Fort Worth and Nearby Cities

As you begin to plan your upcoming kitchen renovation, you will need to select a kitchen countertop to complement the new flooring and appliances. Kitchen countertops come in a variety of designs and colors, so there are a few things to consider when deciding which one is best for you. Let’s look at the various types of kitchen countertops.

Quartz

Because of its resin-based construction, engineered quartz is both durable and non-porous.

Marble

Marble is a beautiful natural stone option with a clean modern feel. Marble will scratch if cut directly on it, and it will stain if spills are not cleaned up immediately.

Concrete

This look is appropriate for an industrial, farmhouse, or even a modern kitchen. Your concrete will last until your house settles, which can cause cracks and damage to the countertop. It is also a possible DIY project.

Granite

It is a long-lasting natural stone with flecked colors that are one-of-a-kind. You have the option of ogee, square, or beveled edges.

Butcher Block

Made of bonded pieces of oak, cherry, walnut, teak, or maple wood. You can cut directly on its surface, but spills will leave stains on the porous surface, and you need a cutting board if the wood is sealed. Unsealed, oil them occasionally.

Tile

Make a counter out of any color, material, design, or shape of the tile. Grout lines can be difficult to keep clean.

Stainless Steel

This is common in commercial kitchens and is easy to clean, but it is easily dented or scratched.

Laminate

This is a low-cost option for imitating wood or stone styles but be careful because it can be damaged by heat.

Soapstone

Natural stone and soft to the touch due to the talc material, this stone is heat, bacteria, and stain-resistant. Oil occasionally.

Choose the kitchen countertop that fits your kitchen’s new theme or look. With many colors and materials to choose from, decide what is best for you. Look at durability versus style and what color you prefer with these helpful kitchen renovation tips.
