Kitchen Countertop Granite

When it comes to remodeling your home’s kitchen, one of the most important decisions a homeowner will have to make is which countertops to install. There are a lot of options to choose from, but we’re going to focus on a few of the most dynamic, popular types of countertops for this piece. If you’re interested in learning more about the best materials to use for your kitchen’s countertops, keep reading for more information!


Quartz is a highly durable material that is popular with many who are remodeling their kitchens. The material is great for hot utensils and pans; place a hot pot full of boiling water on a quartz countertop and nothing gets damaged. For those who love spending time in the kitchen, this is a great option for both aesthetics and functionality!


Ask anyone who has installed granite countertops and they’ll always tell you the same thing; it’s one of their favorite parts of their kitchen. That’s because granite is scratch proof, as well as immune to heat damage. Granite also looks great with any color scheme. You can get a light wall paint and make compliment your granite, or go dark for a warmer feeling.


When it comes to economical options that you can use for a kitchen remodel, nothing beats laminate. It is the least natural option, but great for those with financial constraints. Because it’s built from materials, you can get it in any color you want. That makes it quite nice to be able to plan your entire kitchen at once, and not wonder what color material you’ll end up having to decide on. Make the decision yourself with a laminate, but know that it is generally not quite as durable as the more natural options.
