When you set out to choose your kitchen countertop material, here are some questions that will help you know where to start and focus on what will best suit your needs:
- What’s my budget for kitchen countertops?
- Should I choose integral or under-mount sink and countertop options, stand-alone, or both?
- What style of design do I want in my kitchen? Do I prefer natural grains and patterns or a more austere, single-color kitchen countertop material?
- Would I prefer natural or man-maid countertops?
- Do I want a countertop I can set hot plates, pans, pots, cookie sheets, and casserole dishes (like Pyrex and Corningware) on?’
- What material can I get to counter spills?
The most reliable—and therefore, highly sought-after—kitchen countertops are made from granite, marble, cultured marble, plastic laminates (like Formica), or ceramic tiles. Keep in mind that the type of material you choose will determine how well it fits into your everyday needs.
It’s important to understand what each type of material can do for your kitchen, so here’s an idea of the top industry picks and preferred materials you’ll want to consider.
Granite Countertops - Ideal for home kitchen countertops. Granite is a natural stone product and one of the hardest stone materials. It is highly resistant to everyday wear and tear, cracking, chipping, scratches, and heat from hot dishes. Luckily, granite is readily available and a popular choice for home and residential kitchen remodeling projects.
Marble Countertops - Stand out as a beautiful choice with many home applications. Marble can be used for everything from kitchen and bathroom countertops to window sills to fireplace mantles. It’s not as strong as granite because it’s more porous, and it can chip and scratch as time wears on, so think about the functionality you need before choosing these for your kitchen countertops.
Cultured Marble Countertops - Made of non-reactive resins and crushed marble, so it’s sturdier than marble alone. It’s extremely versatile for kitchen remodeling projects, especially when non-standard countertop customization and installation is required, like for kitchen islands. This man-made product is more affordable than marble, and any chipping and scratching can be easily repaired.
Plastic laminates and acrylic polyester blends - The most common of the top five kitchen countertop materials. Plastic laminate is used for its affordability, durability, and natural water resistance. Formica is the most well-known plastic laminate available in the market. Acrylic polyester blends, like Corian, are non-porous and water-resistant.
Ceramic Tile Countertops - Remind homeowners of classic, country style. Not only are the tiles durable, heat and water-resistant, but you can also get it in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and styles. It’s affordable and can be easily replaced for future kitchen design plans.
Other materials - Maple wood and stainless steel may be used for kitchen countertops, too; but they have specific applications. For instance, maple wood is best used as a butcher block, and stainless steel is used for commercial kitchens such as those in restaurants, cafes, and hotels.
