A Quick Guide to Countertop Materials


Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s the gathering place for family dinners, parties, and homework. If your kitchen is a bit lackluster, it’s time to spruce things up and make it a more inviting space. When deciding on your new finishes, it’s especially important to choose your countertops wisely. The right texture, color, and material can make all the difference when it comes to your time in the kitchen. To help make your decision easier, here are a few of the most popular countertop surfaces in Sandy Springs.


Perhaps second only to granite, quartz is a gorgeous option that comes in many different colors and patterns. Because it is non-porous, there is no need to worry about stains. Plus, quartz countertops don’t need to be sealed regularly like other natural stone countertops. If you have kids, this is a great option. Manufactured quartz is heat, scratch, and impact resistant, making it resilient and long-lasting.


The top choice of homeowners, polished granite provides a high-end look to any kitchen. This natural stone is extremely durable. The grain and material patterns are different in every slab, creating an interesting and beautiful look. While granite is long-lasting, it does require a bit more maintenance. Stains such as oils, wine, acids, and soda need to be cleaned up immediately. A regular sealing is also necessary to ensure that it stays looking polished.


If you are looking for an economical way to make your kitchen come to life, laminate is a great option. With various patterns and colors, you can find exactly what you are looking for at a fraction of the price. Keep in mind that laminate countertops aren’t nearly as durable as some of the other options. In fact, they may need to be replaced much sooner than other types of countertops.

Natural Wood

Cottage and farmhouse interiors are currently on the rise. With them, natural wood countertops are becoming more and more popular. These butcher-block surfaces are both decorative and functional. When sealed properly, they are perfect for chopping, cutting, and working in the kitchen. These surfaces are heat-resistant and can handle hot pots and pans. While you can choose to have your whole counter made of natural wood, many homeowners are opting for a mix of butcher-block and granite or quartz for a chic combination.


Whether you choose Carrara or Calacatta, marble countertops are beautiful. The gray tones mixed with white instantly make your space look more elegant. The cost is comparable to granite. It’s important to keep in mind that marble is extremely porous. Because of this, you could end up with stains if you’re not careful. Take caution with anything acidic and be sure to seal your marble regularly.

Whether you are remodeling your current kitchen or embarking on a new build, choosing your countertops surfaces in Sandy Springs is vital to your new space. No matter what material you choose, make sure that your kitchen is a reflection of your style. Then sit back and enjoy your beautiful new gathering place.
