New countertops can be so exciting, can’t they? Whether you’re upgrading because of necessary repairs, or simply to match a full kitchen or bathroom remodel, this one aspect is probably more exciting than all the rest. That’s primarily because this element is so central to the room in which it’s been placed. Especially in the kitchen, this is the spot where most of the room’s activities take place.

If you prefer countertops that will stand the test of time in your own kitchen, you should focus on materials that are best suited for your own specific needs. You might think all countertops are the same, but nothing could be further from the truth. In order to see some differences, let’s look at some of the most popular materials.
Quartz is a highly sought after material for countertops as it’s nearly indestructible. In addition to being able to stand up to tons of kitchen wear, the manufacturing process makes this material nonporous. That means water and liquids can’t soak in to ultimately damage your surfaces. With these two features in place, it stands to reason, then, that it’s also very low maintenance.
Some homeowners prefer granite countertops thanks to their excessive durability. Even if you wanted to, it’s almost impossible to chip or scratch them and sealer can take those benefits even farther. It resists stains and spills, as a nonporous material, but are also bacteria resistant, for a healthier surface too.
With marble, you’ll have one of the most heat-resistant countertops available. Good for both baking dishes and curling irons, you will definitely enjoy these benefits. It’s timeless, bright, durable, and you’ll never regret the decision.
