What Is The Best Kitchen Countertop Material?

The many different material options for your kitchen countertop can make choosing the one the hardest part of all. Luckily, we are here to help at Legacy Bath and Kitchen. Our design team will personally assist you in choosing the material that best fits your budget and style. Here are some pros and cons of various types of countertop materials.


Laminate countertops are made from multiple layers of plastic stacked on top of each other and bound to particleboard to create a firm surface. Although laminate can be seen as a more inexpensive material, its easy-to-maintain surfaces, variety of designs and easy installation process make it a popular choice for kitchen counters.


As one of the more durable and luxurious countertop materials with many variations to choose from, granite continues to be a popular choice. Granite counters offer very little maintenance, high resistance to heat and increased home value. Although it is elegant and easy to clean, granite can be on the pricier side and difficult to install.


Unlike granite, quartz countertops are not directly made from slabs of stone. Instead, quartz and other mineral particles are arranged into a slab formation and coated with resin to create the final product. The creation process warrants a higher price tag on these countertops, but their easy installation process, simple maintenance and customizability guarantee you’re getting your money’s worth.

Wood or Butcher Block

Wood countertops, most often made from maple and oak trees, are a sleek, classic material choice for your home’s kitchen. They are long-lasting, easy to clean and allow you to prepare food directly on their surface. Maintenance is minimal but necessary to prevent long-term damage from water, knives and cracking.

Although there’s no single best material to use, our team at Legacy Bath and Kitchen can help you find the best for your home.
