There are a lot of different kitchen countertops to choose from, and they all offer something different. It depends on what style you’re going for and how much maintenance and cleaning you want to deal with. Here are some of the top kitchen countertop choices.
Granite is still the most popular choice for kitchen countertops. It gives your kitchen a high-end look and comes in a variety of colors and patterns. Granite takes a little bit of maintenance. It needs to be sealed annually and spills should be cleaned up right away. Oils, wine, acids, and soda are especially dangerous to granite.
Quartz is practically maintenance free. It’s a great choice if you want a classy look without the hassle of having to seal it every year. Quartz is stain, acid, heat, and impact resistant, so it’s great for families with children. There are many different colors and patterns to choose from as well.
Laminate is a great choice for anyone on a tight budget. Laminate is becoming more popular because it often looks like natural stone, wood, or quartz but has a much lower price compared to the real thing. It’s also great if you’re going for a retro, mid-century look because they come in all kinds of bright colors.
Butcher block wood is a very popular choice for a cottage kitchen look. It looks great and it’s functional. If they are properly sealed, they’re sanitary for chopping veggies and even meats. Wood is also heat-resistant so you don’t have to worry about putting a hot pot or pan on the surface.
Marble has a creamy look to it that screams high-end kitchen, and its cost is comparable to granite. Marble is a porous material so it needs to be sealed and you have to be careful about staining.
Concrete countertops can go with a lot of different kitchen styles because they can be stained however you like them and can have different textures. Whether you have a modern kitchen or a shabby chic kitchen, you can make it work.
