Though we might not give it too much thought too often, one of the spaces used most often in our kitchens are that of the countertops. Even though the countertops of our kitchens should be practical, it doesn’t mean that style and beauty has to go entirely out the window for the sake of utilitarian function.

You have options available to you when it comes time for you to choose the countertops of your kitchen. While each option has its own pro’s and con’s, each option also has their own beautiful style.

Solid Surface Counters

Solid surface counters are available in a variety of colors and patterns. Additionally, the option of solid surface counters leaves no visible seams to be seen. However, solid surface counters aren’t the best at resisting heat, and often tend to be a bit pricier. Additionally, a professional is required, typically, for their installation.

Natural Stone Counters

The option of natural stone counters, such as granite or marble, as well as other types of natural stone, can be both organic and extremely beautiful. They are also very resistant to heat. However, they require sealing to prevent stains, and can be expensive.

Engineered Stone Counters

The beauty of engineered stone counters is that they aren’t as porous as natural stone, but they can mimic the look almost exactly. They can border on the expensive, however, depending on the pattern choice or the color choice.

Tile Counters

Tile counters are an option that are extremely affordable. Tile is also available in a whole range of colors and styles, and is tolerant to heat. The grout lines, however, can make tile more difficult to clean.

Laminate Counters

Laminate is very easy to maintain, and offers a wide range of options for the patterns and colors that are available. Laminate counters are also relatively inexpensive. Yet, despite the benefits of laminate, it has the ability to be easily scratched or chipped, and it isn’t the most tolerant of heat.
