4 Different Types Of Countertops You Should Consider

February 11, 2020 | Blog

Kitchens are a place for gathering, conversing and sharing with one another. It’s key to have a kitchen countertop that mends with your style and complements the memories to come. The question is, what material should you go with?


Granite is not only an elegant addition to your kitchen but a common stone to consider. It is easy to clean, heat resistant and impossible to stain.
Granite’s sturdy structure and variety of colors elevate the real estate of your home and creates a luxurious feel to the center of many great meals.


Quartzite stones are a great alternative to those who want the strength of granite but the aesthetic of a marble countertop. This engineered stone is very heavy and more expensive than granite, but it also resists heat and acid. The stone is easy to clean, customizable and has a uniform look.


Laminate countertops, also known as Formica, are the most affordable materials for kitchen remodeling. Laminate is a plastic countertop, with the look of stone, that is easy to install and clean. Although it is not as high quality as granite and quartz, it gives a contemporary look for those who want to save money. The seams are always visible, but the options of looks and patterns are endless.


Soapstone is a natural, trendy stone that you have probably seen in magazines. Its dark, charcoal color is smooth and cool to the touch. The aesthetic of a vintage kitchen will be the focal point of your home. Although it is not completely stained resistant, damages and scratches can be repaired by sanding. It is fairly expensive and the colors are limited, but the stone is guaranteed to start a conversation.
