Choosing the Right Countertops for Your Kitchen Remodel this Winter

Wintertime is one of the best times to remodel your kitchen and one of the decisions you will need to make during the remodel is what type of countertops you want. We recommend that you think very carefully about the material you will be choosing, because certain materials work better in some households than others.

Here are 5 countertops that you can choose from for your kitchen remodel:

Quartz countertops are very durable and resistant to many things like stains, heat, and scratches. These countertops are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns and since they are not porous, they do not need to be sealed like other countertops. This means that maintenance is practically non-existent.

One of the most appealing thing about granite countertops is that no two pieces look the same. There is a variation in every pattern and while this is a plus for many homeowners, it makes matching two pieces for a longer countertop a nightmare. These countertops are very durable, but you will need to wipe up all spills quickly. Granite can stain easily and routine maintenance will also include sealing the surface at least once a year.

Wood countertops are becoming a more popular option in many kitchens since the surface is perfect for prepping meals. The wood does need to be sealed so that it stays sanitary though. It is the best counter to place hot pots and pans on, because it is heat resistant.

Marble countertops can give your kitchen a high-end look, but it can get stained quite easily from spills. These countertops need to be sealed regularly to keep it looking new. Most homeowners will choose to use a marble countertop in one area of their kitchen, because it is the perfect choice for rolling out dough and baking.

Stainless steel countertops bring the look of a restaurant kitchen into your home. It can be cleaned with mild soap and a cloth and is difficult to get stained. Since it is easy to clean, bacteria will not build up on this type of countertop. You must take care when using this countertop though, because it can get dented with very little force.
