Find out How to Choose a Kitchen Countertop for your Renovation in San Antonio, TX & Surrounding Areas

Your kitchen renovation has a big item to consider: the kitchen countertop! A kitchen countertop is essential and at the heart of the kitchen as the place you cook, prepare meals, can study and do homework on the open space, and more. If you don’t know where to begin when you start searching for the perfect kitchen countertop for you, here are some hints at what to look for and what your options are.

Kitchen Countertop Materials

  • Marble: Natural stone, modern, and a clean look. Not scratch or stain proof.
  • Quartz: Stain and scratch proof thanks to being made with resin.
  • Granite: Natural stone known for its colored flecks and unique patterns. Durable natural stone with carved edges: square, beveled, or ogee.
  • Concrete: This style fits all. Durable and possible as a DIY project but can crack and be damaged when the house settles.
  • Tile: Get creative and colorful. You can use any material, shape, and design, but remember the grout lines can be a challenge to keep clean.
  • Butcher Block: Made of natural wood, scratch-resistant, this does stain, will need sanded to fix any damage and requires occasional oiling.
  • Soapstone: Made of talc, this is soft to the touch and is a natural stone. Oil occasionally; it is stain, bacteria, and heat resistant.
  • Stainless Steel: Can de damaged easily but is easy to clean and works great in a commercial setting.
  • Laminate: Get that classic wood or stone look for an affordable price. Not heat-resistant. 

There are many kitchen countertop designs, and materials to choose from—and these are only just a few!

Make your kitchen the style or feel that you want with an attention-grabbing countertop to make your whole room come to life. The countertop is a space you will use constantly so take your time considering your options. When you are ready to go, schedule an estimate with local craftspeople to see how you can begin this project.
