In today’s design world, we have many options available to us, especially in the kitchen, the heart of the home! While an outstanding backsplash can transform the space, I feel countertops make the most significant impact. With all the different countertop possibilities available, I have decided to narrow it down to MY top 5 favorite countertops, in no specific order!
Marble: The timeless style of marble isn’t just aesthetically pleasing; its design helps to disguise wear and hide minor stains. This timeless stone gives any kitchen a high-end look and, although marble is porous, so staining can be a problem, with the proper care, marble can last decades. Regular sealing and special care can keep the beautiful surface looking its best.
Granite: Still the top choice of most homeowners, granite countertops provide a high-end look, which adds value, while provided a durable surface. Granite is a natural material that delivers variation in the pattern which is the appeal for most people. Like marble, with the proper care, granite can add a long-lasting impact to your kitchen.
Quartz: Out of my top 5, quartz, currently has the win. Quartz is practically maintenance free, engineered quartz countertops are stain, acid, scratch, heat and impact resistant and, thanks to their non-porous surface, they do not need to be sealed like natural stone countertops. Quartz comes in a wide range of colors and designs. Quartz is not only an easy option, it adds that value and wow factor homeowners love!
Butch block: Butcher block, brings that warmth to our favorite country chic home. Both decorative and functional, this surface is ideal for food preparation, if properly sealed. Wood is highly heat-resistant, for once, you don’t have to worry hot pots and pans on the surface.
Concrete: Concrete countertops are so in, and customizable. With concrete countertops, you have the options to choose your stain color and texture. Concrete fuses well with different materials, like glass, tile and marble allowing you the opportunity to create your own a one-of-a-kind look. Mark my words, concrete is making a huge come back!
