Which Countertops Should I Use for my Kitchen Remodel?

When it comes to your kitchen, the countertops are one of the most utilized surfaces in the room. It suffices to say that when you’re planning a remodel, you should think carefully about what materials to use for your new counters. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular choices to find out which one is best for your new kitchen.

Want gorgeous stone countertops without having to spend all your free time cleaning and maintaining them? Quartz is your best bet. Engineered stone allows for a variety of color options, from natural to patterns not found in nature. This material is naturally stain-resistant, durable, and requires little maintenance. It’s also non-porous and will not harbor bacteria or viruses. 


A classic choice, granite countertops come in many different patterns and colors and go well with almost any kitchen style. They are known for their durability, and cutting food items on their surface may damage a knife, but not the countertop. Granite gives you a sleek look without the expensive costs that typically come with luxurious countertops. When properly sealed, granite countertops are stain-resistant and won’t stain when spills occur. 


If you’re looking to make your kitchen more glamorous and sophisticated, marble is a great choice for your remodel. Marble countertops are heat-resistant and stay cool to the touch, which makes them perfect for baking stations and hot plates. Don’t have it in your budget to outfit your entire kitchen with marble? Luckily, marble complements other countertop materials well and can be used for islands or as accents to another more budget-friendly countertop material.
