In busy kitchens, the countertop often takes the brunt of activity. If you love to cook and spend a lot of time at home doing it, the strength of your countertop should match your enthusiasm. Otherwise, it might affect your culinary prowess and ruin the beauty of your hardworking space.
If you’re thinking about cabinet refacing, the time might be ripe to do countertop replacement too. After all, updating the look of your cabinetry and island gives you more latitude in expressing your style while increasing your kitchen’s toughness.
Let Dreamstyle Remodeling share the top countertop materials you should consider:
It masquerades as stone but only requires a little maintenance. Chefs and homeowners alike love quartz because its surface is impervious to intense temperature, abrasion, scratches and practically any kind of discoloration. While quartz countertop corners are prone to chipping, having round edges helps protect the unit against damage.
Like quartz, granite withstands the effects of heat and cuts. When properly sealed, its matte or polished finish can fend off most stains. More importantly, granite countertops feature rare colors to lend your kitchen some architectural flair.
This option is perhaps the most cost-effective, reconciling durability with affordability. Appealing to every budget, the pretty surface of a laminate is part of its charm. Available in a vast array of colors, patterns and textures, you can let your imagination run wild when visualizing its design. If you’re mindful about not using it as a cutting board, laminates can stay in good shape.
Made from quartz crystals, silestone has been turning discerning homeowners into believers with its wonderful mix of durability and beauty. Its non-porous nature means it boasts a low fluid absorption level. Resistant to stains, scratches and bacteria, this engineered stone doesn’t need a lot of care to preserve its stunning appearance.
