A kitchen countertop is going to be a permanent fixture for your kitchen, so you’ll want to carefully consider the best kitchen countertop materials. Your four main kitchen countertops choices are going to be: granite, marble, quartz, and quartzite. Each material has specific characteristics that make it attractive for use in the kitchen. These materials are available in specific color choices.
Granite is one of the most durable countertops and is available in speckled patterns, often grey, black, and amber. It resists scratches, stains, and heat. Granite is timeless and will look as good twenty years from now as it does today.
For those people who wish to have a softer look to their kitchen than granite can provide, marble is a popular choice. Bright white can brighten up the kitchen, and it remains cool to the touch, which is perfect near stoves and ovens.
Quartz countertops are also quite durable, as they’re manufactured from crushed quartz, mixed with polymers to make it tough. White, beige, and clear are the more common color choices which can provide a formal look to your kitchen.
Quartzite is made from an actual rock called quartzite. It can provide a touch of elegance to your kitchen, as it’s embedded with natural sparkle. Quartzite more commonly comes in lighter colors such as white and off-white.
