Kitchen and Bathroom Countertops
Whether you choose quartz, granite, or another stone, you can rest assured that your countertops can handle most scratches, scuffs, and moisture. Plus, countertops are easy to clean and maintain, and typically they will last for decades in your home. Many countertops can be treated to be stain resistant, and some are heat resistant which means you can place pots and pans directly on your countertop surface.
For bathrooms and busy kitchens, we recommend choosing a more durable countertop option. Learn more about the different types of countertops to see which is right for your setting.
Types of Countertops
The two most popular types of countertops are granite and quartz. Granite is a natural option, while quartz features a special construction for extra durability. Laminate is a more affordable option and is the most common choice for homeowners looking for a low-cost, natural looking option. Other countertop options include materials like butcher block wood, polished concrete, and even ceramic tile! If you are an at home chef, we recommend choosing a durable countertop option that can withstand daily use and accidental food spills.
Granite countertops continue to be popular in kitchens because they are stylish and durable. Granite is naturally resistant to most stains, and it is usually sealed and treated to prevent scratches. And, since granite is naturally-occurring, your countertops will be one-of-a-kind.
Quartz looks pretty much exactly like granite, but it is infused with materials such as resin for extra durability. As such, quartz countertops can handle scratches, scuffs, and moisture, so it is a great option for bathrooms and kitchens. Also, quartz tends to be less expensive than granite.
Laminate countertops can take on the look of any material. They do not just have to look like stone or wood, they can take on the look of other patterns as well. Laminate countertops are resistant to staining and heat, and require little maintenance.
