Most popular kitchen countertops for your kitchen this holiday

prescott kitchens counter topsThe holidays are here and families everywhere will be preparing meals in their kitchens. Or perhaps you’re right in the middle of a kitchen remodel to get your kitchen ready for out of town guests and considering various countertop options. With all the upcoming increased food preparation, how does one decide on the right surface to work on? Choosing the right kitchen countertop can be tricky and costly. So before splurging on an investment, here are a few of the most popular kitchen countertops for your kitchen this holiday.

Granite: If you like a traditional, high-end look that needs a little love once in a while then granite countertops are for you. Once only found in expensive kitchens, granite is more common today and is by far the most popular natural stone countertop material. Granite is tough, but beautiful though it does require a little maintenance. It resists most cracks, chips, and heat and if you apply sealer annually, granite stands up to stains. It’s recommended you use a non-abrasive stone for everyday cleaning. Granite comes in a variety of colors with natural variations that homeowners have come to appreciate and love in their kitchens.

Quartz: Do your countertops take a lot of beating? If you’re looking for something low maintenance then quartz countertops may be the perfect surface for your kitchen. Quartz countertops are stain, acid, scratch, heat and impact resistant and, thanks to their non-porous surface, don’t need to be sealed like natural stone countertops. They’re also available in a wide range of colors and patterns and can mimic the look of natural stone if that’s the style you’re going for.

Recycled Glass: Are you an eco-conscious homeowner looking for a stunning, statement making kitchen counter top? Recycled glass might be a good fit for your kitchen style. Crushed recycled glass is a relative newcomer to the countertop market. It’s typically made from recycled beer bottles, traffic lights, and windshields which makes it a natural, eco-friendly countertop choice. Recycled glass countertops are nonporous and don’t need sealing like granite countertops. A durable choice, crushed glass counters don’t chip, scratch stain or burn but can be a more costly option than the other countertop finishes.
