Laminates have come a long way since they first became popular in the 1950s. While they have retained the durability and no-hassle clean up that originally made them so popular, manufacturers have added a multitude of colors, patterns and textures to complement any style.
Coming in at the lower end of cost, laminates offer a vast number of choices from mild to wild. There are even patterns that do a good job of replicating the look of wood, stone or solid surface materials for substantially less than the real thing. While laminates have fewer options for edge profiles and seams between sections can be more apparent, they are an excellent choice for those who want to spend less for a quality countertop.
Natural Stone Countertops
Natural stone is beautiful and can stand up to a lot of use. Like all natural materials, stone exhibits tremendous variation in color, pattern and texture so no two pieces are exactly alike. Due to its resilience and adaptability, granite is the most popular type of natural stone used for countertops in kitchens and bathrooms. With regular maintenance and periodic resealing, natural stone can last for generations.
Quartz is an excellent choice for homeowners that want a look similar to natural stone with the care-free benefits of solid surfaces. Created by combining natural minerals with colored resins, quartz countertops tend to have a more uniform appearance than stone surfaces. Available in a vast range of colors, quartz countertops can stand up to years of use with little to no maintenance required.
