Natural Granite Countertops
If you’re looking to bring timeless elegance into your home, you should definitely choose Natural Granite countertops. Granite countertops are amazing because of the unique beauty of natural stone–no two pieces are exactly alike. Natural granite should be periodically resealed to maintain its appearance, and you should limit exposure to highly acidic foods and other staining substances.
Natural Quartz Countertops
As one of the most durable and non-porous surfaces available, quartz counters are a great choice for your kitchen. Quartz counters are extremely heat resistant, and require cleaning with only mild soap and water to retain their brilliant surfaces. Due to their dense and non-porous composition, quartz counters are highly resistant to bacteria, making them extremely safe for your families health.
Stainless Steel Countertops
Stainless Steel countertops are both beautiful and germ-resistant! This is a great option if you are going for an industrial look in your kitchen. Stainless Steel can show scratches, dents and fingerprints easily. A matte finish can hide the damage better.
Wood countertops can be both functional and decorative and add a warm look to your kitchen. Wood countertops require regular maintenance.
Laminate is one of the most affordable countertop options. Due to improvements in printing technology laminates can even mimic the look of stone, wood or metal without the cost. However, laminates can be damaged by knives or hot pans.
