Cabinets and countertops are always the top things to consider when you remodel your kitchen. It is a very important decision to make when you have to decide on a countertop material. People are usually concerned with visual, durability, and cost.
The top priority that people are concerned with is the visual appearance of the countertop. If you have a cabinet that is white or in light colors, it is recommended to create a contrast with a dark color countertop. Neutral color countertop can also be used to create a clean look. Many have chosen the path of using white cabinets with quartz countertops. If you have dark cabinets, creating a contrast with white countertops work best.
Granite, marble, laminate and solid surface are some of the most popular countertop choices out in the market. They all have different durability characteristics and maintenance problems.
Granite is always a popular choice in kitchens and it is not surprising to see people have consistently used it. It is a hard stone and it is heat and wear resistant.
Marble is also another top choice because of its stunning color and versatility to match the cabinets. However, its weakness is that it can be vulnerable to scratching and stains.
Cost can play a huge part in deciding what material to use for your countertop. Granite is the most affordable compared to marble or quartz. Many stone yards also have many granite options on display and in stock. Marble is the most expensive of them all while quartz is more expensive than granite but less expensive than marble.
