If you are in the market for new kitchen countertops and you want to make sure that you are able to get the most for your money, it is important to consider some of the top options that are available to you. Here are some of the best solutions in kitchen countertops for your money.

Quartz Kitchen Countertops

Quartz is a new stone in the engineered stone countertops field. These items are shaped into slabs and bound with a resin, not cut out of a solid slab in the quarry like natural stone.

Engineered quartz is an excellent countertop because it performs in much the same way that marble or granite does and it is nonporous. Quartz has fewer colors available than some of its other stone competitors but is very resistant to scratching and. Much of the technology in quartz is cutting edge and these are some of the best kitchen options for food preparation, easy care, cleaning, and a fantastic look.

Installing quartz can be an investment in your home and is well worth adding to your kitchen. If you are interested in being on the true leading edge of countertop designs, this is an excellent material to consider for your installation. Natural and solid surface materials are some of the finest on the market for consumers today.

Granite Kitchen Countertops

Granite is the go-to material of choice for most people that want a countertop that will truly last. Granite produces a distinguished look in any location it is placed and it is one of the top selections for many luxury homes today. Granite has historically been an expensive material to build with and modern granite has grown a bit cheaper with the help of engineered stone. 

Natural granite is still available, but the engineered stone concept remains one of the best solutions for supply as well as for bringing down costs.

Choosing granite is an excellent option for your kitchen counters. It is nearly impervious to heat and it can be a very durable option for you to enjoy in your home. Granite will also improve the value of your home substantially through the quality of the materials and the desirability of the granite material for many homeowners. Granite offers you the chance for many customs touches in your home because it is widely available in over 3000 colors to choose from. Granite installations are nearly maintenance-free when they are treated with a newer sealer style.

The only downside to granite is that this is not a suitable material if you were looking to do it yourself. It is always best to trust a professional to complete your installation with granite products. The slabs can crack if they are installed improperly or if they are exposed to too much stress. Proper sealing will also need to take place as granite stones can be surprisingly porous.

Why upgrade to granite or quartz from laminate?

If you have traditional laminate countertops, you may be wondering more about the advantages of a granite or quartz countertop upgrade. Changing over to granite or quartz will ensure your counters have great durability, improved heat resistance, improved cleaning with a natural resistance to stains, and truly natural beauty. Either of these countertop materials will improve the value of your property and once they are installed, they can last for decades without a need for refinishing. With limitless colors available and beautiful custom options to choose from, a granite or quartz countertop can be the perfect inclusion for your property.
