How to Choose the Right Countertops for You

If you are looking for new countertops, then you probably already know that there are many options to choose from. There are options in color, pattern, shape, and material. Before you can select the color, pattern, and shape you will need to choose what material you want your countertops made from. We are going to discuss three popular countertop that are all wonderful options.

  • Quartz – Quartz is a natural product that is extremely durable. Maintenance is low and it is not a porous material, which is ideal for sanitation and cooking. Quartz is ideal for homes that want a high-end look but have lots of traffic, little kids, or there are concerns for discoloring and wear.
  • Granite – Granite is a natural product that is mined all over the world. Granite is a porous material that needs sealant every 15 years. Finishes vary from matte to glossy. Price is usually moderate to high. Granite is perfect for the home that wants the natural elegance of stone countertops with a little maintenance.
  • Marble – Marble is a natural stone material. Marble countertops are more porous than other options, which means that they do need maintenance to keep them from becoming damaged. There is a wide range of matte and glossy options. The price point for marble is higher than many other options.
