Traditionally, Formica or laminate countertops were your only choice for countertop material. Today you have many more choices for countertop material, both natural and manmade. Natural materials, such as granite, quartz, and hardwoods are very popular, and add a touch of elegance to your kitchen. Granite, especially, offers visual interest and style to your kitchen, and is one of the most popular countertop materials in use today. It is very durable, easy to maintain, and will last a lifetime.
On the expensive side, granite kitchen countertops have become very popular. They add class and elegance to any kitchen, there is an endless colour variety available, to match whatever colour kitchen cabinets you have. They hold up to heat, and so long as they are properly installed, they can last a lifetime. Another similar option, which is not as well known, is Engineered Stone. This is made of 93% quartz particles. It is heat resistant, stain resistant, and acid resistant, and does not scratch easily - all bonuses when it comes to kitchen countertops. In addition it is available in a wide variety of colours so you can always match, or complement your kitchen cabinets. If you are asking which type of countertop is right for you, provided the price is not out of your budget, granite or engineered stone will meet your every need.
Durability: Scratch and Chip Resistance. Here another area where granite kitchen countertops are more finicky. Granite may be chipped or scratched; quartz, on the other hand, is so dense it cannot be scratched or damaged in this way. In fact, quartz is one of the hardest materials on the planet; it typically outlasts any surrounding minerals such as sandstone and is often found in stream sediments since it is highly resistant to weathering. This makes quartz a natural choice for kitchen countertops.
