Quartz Countertops

One of the world’s hardest surfaces. Available in limitless colors and patterns. Withstands spills, heat, scratches, and more. Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz countertops are arguably the most durable option for kitchens. They’re also some of the most eye-catching. They come in a wide variety of colors, including fire-engine red and apple green, as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams, with sparkles and veining for the look of granite or marble. But unlike natural-stone slabs, which are mined, these slabs are engineered in a factory. Their primary ingredient is ground quartz (about 94 percent), combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant—and nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. Compare that with granite, the reigning king of high-end counter-tops, which typically requires a new protective top coat at least once a year.

Wood Countertops

Offers warmth and natural beauty to any kitchen. Perfect for work stations and islands that serve as dining areas. Call them the cure for the cold of common stainless steel. After being eclipsed by showy stones like granite and marble and maintenance-free engineered materials like quartz and solid surfacing, natural-wood countertops are enjoying a real revival. Constructed from pieces of hardwood laminated together with glue for strength and stability, they provide a warm, organic landing surface in a kitchen, one that is wonderfully forgiving, gentle on dishware, and able to absorb the noise of a busy household. Wood can also be revived if damaged; if it gets dinged, stained, or gouged, you can refinish it.The majority of wood countertops are made from traditional butcher block, and while they may see some mild meal prep, they’re rarely used for chopping these days. They’re favored more for their looks. Less expensive woods often line the kitchen as a handsome, budget-friendly surface; pricier species top islands or breakfast bars, where they provide a welcome textural contrast or a furniture-like finish. The variety of woods available is impressive, from subtly grained maple to deep, rich walnut to dramatic mesquite to exotic iroko. Yes, wood is a good choice, but it does require some attention.

Solid Surface Countertops

Stylish, seamless look with high heat and impact resistance. Works well with integral sinks.Solid surface counter-tops have been around for over 50 years now and are a mainstay in kitchens and bathrooms. What might have once been considered trendy is now so established that few countertop materials, except for quartz, have managed to achieve the same status. Solid surface is a perfect mid-range counter top material. Buyers not interested in laminate but still looking for an affordable countertop often gravitate to solid surface. It is one of the few counter materials that a homeowner can resurface with just an orbital sander. While visually it lacks the depth of real stone or even quartz, it does resemble stone far more than laminate does. Solid surface is where a lot of countertop buyers naturally end up after carefully considering its high and low points compared to other materials.

Laminate Countertops

Budget-friendly surface available in an array of colors and patterns. Easy-to-clean and resists stains, heat, and impact. There’s no secret that sfter years of being vilified, laminate countertops have surged back in popularity. At one time, laminates held a firm position as the man-made materials countertop of choice. But this position was challenged with the introduction of solid surfaces such as Corian. Later, another competitor came along: quartz countertops. The thinking among many homeowners was that they preferred a surface that was solid and homogeneous, a quality offered by both solid surface and quartz. Due to this stiff competition, laminate counter makers stepped up their game. Now this material, once a staple of ultra-low-budget remodels, is being found in higher-end homes. Major brand names in the laminate field are Formica, Wilsonart, Pionite, Bevella, Hartson-Kennedy, and Nevamar. They have responded with better embossing to more accurately represent a stone surface and with sharper, high-definition visual textures.
