Traditionally, Formica or laminate countertops were your only choice for countertop material. Today you have many more choices for countertop material, both natural and manmade. Natural materials, such as granite, quartz, and hardwoods are very popular, and add a touch of elegance to your kitchen.
Natural materials, by their very nature, have a variety of patterns within the natural material. It is this randomness, which makes them so appealing to many consumers. Granites, particularly come in a wide variety of colors, grains, and patterns which can vary greatly, even in the same slab. While this randomness is appealing, it can offer a challenge to the installer to make large countertops appear seamless. One solution to this is using granite tiles to control or accent the randomness, depending on your preference.
One of the newest countertop materials to be introduced to the kitchen design market are the glass countertops. Thick, tempered glass is used for this purpose, and there are a lot of designs and textures to choose from. They are non-porous and are extremely easy to maintain. These are perfect for modern kitchens, and their textures are ideal for camouflaging small scratches and fingerprints.
