So Many Countertop Options
Choosing the Right Style of Countertop for your Home or Business
Choosing the right style and material for your countertop can be difficult. You know that countertops must be durable and long-lasting, but you also want something aesthetically pleasing. There are some facts about countertop styles that may seal the deal for you:
Granite is hard enough to resist abrasion, strong enough to bear significant weight, inert enough to resist weathering, and it accepts a brilliant polish. Granite won’t become dated because it’s a 100% natural material that will be a stunning investment in your home. Granite is not only affordable and durable. These countertops are highly scratch resistant, are heat resistant and moisture-proof.
Quartz is one of the hardest components of natural granite. Quartz rates seven out of 10 on Mohs Scale of Hardness. The only materials harder are diamonds, sapphires and topaz. The quartz crystals are used to create a beautiful and strong surface that is highly scratch and impact resistant. Quartz is more customizable and comes in a variety of styles and colors. These countertops are also durable and do not need much maintenance.
Laminate is made by using multiple layers so that the material has improved strength, stability and durability. When looking for a budget-friendly option, laminate countertops are at the top of the list. They are very affordable and easy to maintain. Laminate is non-porous and does not harbor bacteria. A hot pad or trivet should always be used under heat-generating appliances.
Solid surface is a man-made material that has been used for years for both residential and commercial spaces. It has various color choices and offers a versatility to create designs not possible in other materials. It withstands moderate temperatures and is non-porous, so stains are unlikely and it doesn’t harbor bacteria.
Cultured marble gets its inspiration from the natural beauty of quartz and it is a timeless choice for countertops. It is sleek and easy to maintain, which makes it a common choice for many bathroom renovations.
