Custom Countertops Buying Guide


 
Business
Two decades ago, selecting a countertop material was not at all challenging. Your options consisted of less than 20 color variations of plastic laminate. Currently, the desire of consumers to own a more practical style of counters has transformed the market. They have changed from a mere work surface and become a fundamental design element for your home. With seemingly unlimited styles, color schemes, and materials, choosing custom countertops for your home can be quite overwhelming. Below is a list of popular kitchen countertop materials to help you find the choice that best suits you.

Laminate

Although looked down upon by stone lovers, plastic laminate still boasts a large fan base. They are constructed from plastic coated synthetics, resulting in a smooth, water-resistant surface that is easily cleaned. Available in a wide range of patterns and colors, these surfaces are durable and easily replaced if stained or damaged. It should be noted that they occasionally have visible seams or edges and are vulnerable to scratches and cuts. Additionally, they are less heat-resistant than their counterparts, so it is not the most fitting option for serious cooks.

Corian and Solid-Surface

Corian and solid-surface are made from acrylic materials, allowing a seamless appearance. Both resist water, bacteria, and stains, making them low-maintenance options for your kitchen. Their surfaces are scratch-resistant but they are less heat-resistant than quartz or granite.

Granite Countertops

Granite tops are crafted from durable natural stone and are the most popular choice for custom countertops. It is easily discernible why this stone is so popular - it boasts plenty of character, grains, and colors with customizable finishes. They are extremely heat-resistant and can withstand stains and bacteria once properly sealed. Due to its smooth nature, granite is excellent for baking preparations, such as rolling out dough. To maintain the life of your granite, it should be sealed yearly. While minimal maintenance is involved, this material provides for an elegant and timeless look for your home.

Marble

A softer stone than granite, marble can scratch and stain more easily. Marble is immediately recognizable and lends a classic look to your kitchen.

Quartz

Similar to granite, quartz is durable, resistant to heat, water, bacteria, and stains. This natural stone is the most robust and low-maintenance, never having to be sealed and very easy to clean. There may be fewer shades to pick from, but with the other benefits, quartz is a great contender, offering lasting beauty.

Combining Countertop Surfaces

For unique custom countertops, combine different materials for specific work areas in your kitchen. For example, install stone near your range top where you place hot pans. Solid surfaces near the sink are ideal for easy cleaning. This custom order is the most expensive choice, but can be tailored to fit your kitchen activity.

This room is regarded as the focal point of any home, and owners now have the means at their fingertips to create their perfect oasis that meets their budget.
