Which Countertop Material is Right for Me?

While it may be tempting to choose a countertop material based on looks alone, it’s important to consider its durability and maintenance as well. After all, your countertops are the workbench of your kitchen and they would need to be tough enough to handle damage from everyday prep. Handyman Connection of McKinney compares three popular materials to help you choose.



As a natural stone, granite is one of the most eco-friendly, beautiful, and versatile countertop materials. Since they’re composed of different materials, each countertop has a unique and attractive appearance that accentuates your kitchen cabinets well. Aside from their aesthetic appeal, granite also has excellent resistance to scratches and heat damage, making them a great choice for your kitchen. Additionally, they’re highly durable and fairly low-maintenance.


If you’re looking for a more elegant option, quartz is the perfect choice for you. They come in a wide range of colors, patterns, textures, and finishes so you can easily find a style that suits your preferences. Quartz is also extremely durable and scratch- and chip-resistant, allowing it to handle the daily damage from your kitchen. In addition, because it’s a non-porous material, it has excellent resistance to staining and bacteria.


Laminate countertops are a wonderful choice for homeowners on a budget. Among all the materials available on the market, they offer the best value. They require very little maintenance and can easily be cleaned by a soapy washcloth. Laminate is also a highly versatile option, available in a selection of colors, patterns, and designs.
