Countertops are an essential part of your kitchen or bathroom. Not only do they add style but they are also functional. Countertops serve as a functional storage space for things you need around the home every day. They are available in several different materials, styles, colors and more. Most countertops are custom fitted to the shape of your kitchen. Some different countertops materials include polished concrete, and butcher block wood.

What is the Best Countertop for my Home?
Stone countertops can be made of Granite, Marble or Limestone. Stone countertops are nearly impervious to heat, and come in thousands of unique colors with different mineral patterns and natural looks. Stone adds real estate value to your home and aesthetic appeal.
Corian is a man-made product composed of 33 percent binding resins and 66 percent minerals. It is the original solid surface brand name. There are many colors and patterns available in terms of style. When it comes to durability Corian never needs sealing, but is not resistant to heat or scratching.
Quartz is a type of engineered stone that is bound by minerals and resins. They can be made to look like natural stone or a range of colors and feature a non-porous surface that resists scratching and staining, and are resistant to heat and acid.
Laminate countertops may not be of the same quality as stone or engineered stone, but they are available in thousands of different styles and options. Laminate countertops are easy to care for and don’t need to be sealed like granite countertops.
