Choosing the right countertop is an important decision. It should fit your needs and fit the design of your kitchen. How do you decide which one is right for you? In this video, you will learn about several countertop options that are available to you.
The first type of countertop is a solid surfacing countertop. Solid surfacing countertops are beneficial because they are resistant to stains, moisture, sunlight, and heat.
They can also simply be repaired with a little buffing. They are also cheap at between $50-$75 per square foot.
Marble is also a great option. It provides a timeless look. However, this look comes with higher maintenance. This is because the porous surface can stain or etch. Therefore, it must be resealed every one to two years. It is also more susceptible to heat, thermal shock, discoloration, and burns. It is also expensive at approximately $120 per square foot.
Granite is a versatile option. It comes in many colors that will fit any pallet. It is also extremely resistant to heat, scratches, and stains. No sealing is required. It is also one of the cheapest options at about $40 per square foot.
