Your choice of countertop materials can have a big impact on the appearance and function of your new kitchen. After all, the countertop material will need to complement the rest of the kitchen design and since you will use your countertop for many years, you will want something low-maintenance. Today, Handyman Connection of Rockville will discuss some of the countertop materials available on the market and their features:
Laminate – Laminate countertops are a popular option because of their affordability and versatility. They come with the widest possible range of designs, colors, and patterns. Certain laminate countertops can also mimic the appearance of other countertop materials. In addition, the latest manufacturing technologies have improved the durability of this material. Laminate countertops are also incredibly easy to clean.
Granite – Granite is a classic countertop material and it will look fantastic with the right kitchen design. This material has outstanding durability and a timeless elegance. Granite countertops are special because every countertop looks unique. This is thanks to the different highlights in the material. Granite countertops are also resistant to heat damage and scratches. However, this material requires periodic maintenance. You need to reseal it to prevent stains.
Quartz – Quartz countertops are durable enough to provide decades of service while staying as beautiful as the day you installed them in your kitchen. Quartz comes in a variety of colors and designs, so it will look good in practically any kind of kitchen. In addition, quartz countertops are nonporous so you do not need to seal them. They are also resistant to staining and bacteria.
Concrete – Concrete countertops are the latest addition to the countertop industry. This material is durable, not easily chipped, hard, and comes in an array of colors.
