Kitchen countertops – what works best for you?
OK, here are some of the options out there for you to peruse:
- Engineered or natural stone
- Thin or thick slabs
- Solid or patterned
- Don’t get me started on selecting a color – that is so subjective, for each homeowner to decide.
Of course, there are more materials, but that would make a really long list, and stone materials are very popular, so we will just look at them today.
Engineered quartz is one of the most popular countertop materials selected for kitchens. More people are selecting solid colors than in the past. Quartz is a winning kitchen countertop because it is care-free and durable. Solid colors, such as all black or all white go with any color scheme, and are being used more often.
Quartzite has been gaining in popularity for several years, which provides the look of a natural stone but without the maintenance. Quartzite can provide the look of marble with the toughness of granite.
Having a thick – looking edge shows off the material and looks luxurious. So what will you choose? Lots to think about and visits to some show-rooms will help you decide – as well as checking out what your friends and family have had installed in their kitchens!
