Bathroom & Kitchen Countertop Ideas
Are you starting a kitchen or bathroom remodel? Or maybe you are just updating to stay with the trends. Regardless, there are a few things you should consider before you say goodbye to your old countertops.
There are three basics groups of countertop types:
Stone Countertops (Granite, marble, quartz, etc…)
In addition to the three basics, there are also new materials being used for counters, some made from recyclable materials, others made from concrete and even glass options. The type of material you choose should be highly dependent on the type of use and level of activity you plan on for your kitchen or bathroom. Each type of countertop has its own special properties that make them unique.

Best Laminate Countertop
The most budget friendly option, laminate countertops are making a comeback with all new patterns that can mimic natural stone and wood.
Best Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops are essentially maintenance free. They are stain, acid, scratch, and heat resistant due to their non-porous surface, which also means they do not need to be sealed.
Most Popular Granite Countertops
Traditional granite countertops offer a high end look and add value. Because granite is a natural stone, its color varies from slab to slab. It requires a bit more maintenance than quartz, so wipe up stains quickly and routinely seal the surface.
Wood Kitchen Countertops
Butcher block-style wooden counters are decorative and functional. When properly sealed, these counters are great for food prep and are highly heat resistant.
