When you are remodeling your kitchen, bathroom or another room in your home, you are probably considering new countertops. And you might be wondering what kind you should choose. Countertops can be made out of everything from natural stone to laminate, so sometimes it’s hard to figure out which one is best for your house and your family. We install countertops in Hastings, so we have a few suggestions on what to keep in mind while making your selection.
Solid Surface Countertops
Solid surface countertops are a great option if you are looking for counters that are resistant to bacteria and staining. While granite is also bacteria resistant, solid surface is a better option if you are looking to install these in showers. Plus, solid surface countertops can be refinished so they look just like new in a matter of just a few hours.
Laminate countertops are a more cost-effective choice for those who are working within a tight budget. Plus, this type of countertop can take a great deal of wear and tear, so they will last for a long time, even if you have a large family. And nowadays, you don’t even have to worry about the seam showing. In this day and age, laminate counters don’t have that anymore, and you can also select from a few different edge options.
Natural Stone Countertops
These days, you can’t turn on any home improvement show without hearing about granite. As one of the most popular natural stones for countertops, there are good reasons everyone seems to love it. Granite is durable, elegant, heat and burn resistant and it looks good in nearly every home. Quartz is another natural stone that is a popular choice for countertops. Quartz offers even more color options than granite and is more forgiving of cracks and chips than granite.
