New countertops are an essential part of any new kitchen or bathroom project.
But there are many choices when it comes to what kind of countertop you want. You’ve probably all heard of granite counters, which are literally a solid choice. Granite is actually natural stone, and it’s beautiful, but it’s not the only choice out there.
Another popular choice to consider is quartz; while quartz is a natural rock, quartz countertops are man-made, meaning unlike some granite products they are highly customizable in terms of colour and pattern.
Quartz is also non-porous; in most cases, a quick wipe after use will usually do the trick. Quartz is also more resilient when it comes to heat and cold.
Another option to look at is laminate, which is a man-made product and is available in many styles. Laminate countertops have been popular for decades, but you may associate them with low quality and tacky colours. That’s not the case anymore!
Laminate is versatile and long-lasting, and compared to some other choices is relatively inexpensive. But that doesn’t mean it won’t look professional when it’s installed; basic maintenance will keep it looking new for months or years.
Whichever you choose, it really comes down to personal tastes, because there’s no wrong choice with these options.
