With exposure to water, heat, sharp knives, and more, countertops carry a heavy burden in the kitchen, and while they cover a large portion of space in the kitchen, it’s also a great place to make a statement with pleasing aesthetics!
- Tile provides a budget-friendly way to customize countertops, durability, and come in a variety of colors, shapes, textures, and sizes so that any style or look can be achieved
- Or go with the always popular granite, which is a durable material that stands up to the tough wear of an active kitchen, and stone’s natural variations in colors and textures make each countertop unique
- Another amazing countertop material is Quartz, which is another way of referring to “engineered stone” countertops. They are manmade surfaces created from chunks of stone mixed with resins and coloring. (This is not to be confused with “quartzite” or “natural quartz,” both of which refer to a solid-stone alternative to granite.) Quartz is one of the hardest surfaces on earth making it super durable. It’s also nonporous,scratch resistant, and has built in anti-microbial protection which inhibits the growth in bacteria, mold, and mildew, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze. It also does not need to be sealed and is a “greener” choice of materials since it’s made from waste stone and therefore doesn’t require mining slabs or shipping them around the globe, both of which are carbon-intensive processes for natural granite and marble. The downside to quartz—at least for some people—has always been that the patterns looked more uniform and consistent so they don’t quite pull off the look of real stone. But lately manufacturers have figured out how to create irregularity in their quartz, effectively mimicking the natural-looking variegation of granite and even the swirls of marble, in a nearly indestructible material.
