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.
In addition to the cost of the materials, you need to consider the cost of installation of the material you choose for your kitchen countertops. Most countertop installations are best left to the experts, because they require special tools or knowledge for their proper installation. This is especially true for natural stone slab countertops and poured concrete countertops, because of the weight involved. For the do-it-yourselfer, tile countertops can be relatively easy to install, if you have a basic knowledge of tile installation.
When it comes to picking a new countertops for your kitchen, there are a number of important factors that need to be taken into consideration. One of the most important things to remember is the cabinets in your kitchen. Countertops are almost always placed on top of kitchen cabinets or cupboards. If you are looking to remodel your cabinets as well, it may be a good move to pick out all of your supplies and materials at once same time. This will help to make sure that your new kitchen countertop not only looks great, but that it also goes well with the kitchen cabinets that you will have put in.
