What to Look for in a Kitchen Countertop
Before you start the process of choosing kitchen countertops, you need to decide what it is you are looking for. Most people want a durable option because of the amount of abuse kitchen countertops usually endure. Also, some countertops require more maintenance than others, which can be a problem for some. And then of course, you want to consider how much aesthetics play a role in your countertop choice. Countertops are a large investment and you don’t want choose them on a whim. Here are some of the countertop choices you will find available to you.
Popular Granite Countertop
This is one of the leading choices in durability as well as beauty. Since granite is a natural stone, it comes in many different pattern variations and colors. Granite is a more expensive choice, but it is heat resistant and scratch resistant.
Beautiful Marble Countertops
Marble is known for its beauty, but is not as durable as granite because it isn’t as hard. This natural stone is also very porous which makes it stain easily. Many homeowners are drawn to the beauty of marble which outweighs the cons.
Durable Quartz Countertop
This manmade material has the durability of a manufactured product, and the beauty of a natural stone. Choosing quartz is a way to give your kitchen a custom-made flare without paying the high cost you do for granite or other natural stones.
Custom Concrete Countertops
If you are looking for an industrial feel, the newly popular concrete countertops are the perfect choice. While it is fairly durable, it can crack and is susceptible to staining. You can customize it with embedded stones or tile to add beauty.
Organic Wooden Countertops
Choosing wooden countertops will add an organic beauty to your kitchen. Butcher block is the most common choice in wooden countertops because of its durability. They need to be maintained with conditioner and oils regularly to avoid cracking and other damage.

Laminate is a paper-like material that is glued to a piece of plywood. It is a budget friendly choice and comes in many variations. It will show wear over time by peeling and isn’t the longest lasting choice.
