Granite is a durable, easy to clean and low maintenance material for countertops. There are many ways to save when remodeling the kitchen, but many homeowners want to splurge when it comes to the counters.
The reasons are clear; what makes the most visual impact when you walk into a kitchen? Countertops, of course!
A close second, but at a lesser cost are quartz composites, also called engineered stone. It is composed of about 90% quartz and 10% acrylic or epoxy binder. Engineered stone is a hard material that has depth, clarity and radiance, beyond that found in other solid surface materials.
If it is “that time” to upgrade your kitchen, consider selecting materials and surfaces that will look great for years to come.
