The choice of kitchen countertop ideas is one of the most important decisions. That you will make when remodeling or renovating your kitchen. The most important thing to consider is how accountants will be used and abused over the years. For a large family, you will want something lasting. For someone who does not cook much or does not have small children running around their kitchen. Countertops can be purchased solely on the basis of decoration.
Granite is the most familiar element for kitchen countertops. It comes in a variety of colors, appears elegant and is fairly easy to clean and maintain. The marble is quite expensive and although it is beautiful and very recognizable, it dyes easily. Limestone and soapstone are other options for natural stone, but they are more delicate than granite, the stain easier and require more maintenance. Countertops made of reconstituted stone (quartz) can give the same look like granite, they are so sturdy and easy to maintain, but they usually cost more than granite.
If you are looking for something that looks good but does not break the bank, you can try laminate, ceramic tile or solid surface countertops (acrylic or polyester). Laminate counters are affordable, durable, easy to clean and come in a variety of colors and designs. Ceramic tile comes in various colors, textures and patterns, is extremely resistant (even with hot pots) and cleans easily. Solid surface counters are custom made to your kitchen specifications and come in various colors and designs. Most scratches can be sanded, but hot pans can stain and leave marks.
