Although it is smart to zone in on the eye appeal and overall looks of a countertop, it is also important to make sure that you can pay for it. If you are reworking your whole kitchen, it might be a good move to make a list of materials that you will need or want, in addition to a budget. If you mistakenly throw away too much money on kitchen countertop materials, you may find it tough to afford to remodel the rest of your kitchen.
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.
Wood is a good material for adding warmth to a kitchen. It comes in different colors and patterns and is versatile enough to match a modern kitchen or a country-themed one. A few examples of hardwood used for kitchen countertops are oak, walnut, cherry, teak, mahogany, pecan, hard maple, and many others.
