Popular Countertop Materials
There’s no such thing as the “perfect countertop material” — it just depends on what works for your home and your functional needs. Below are some of the most popular countertop choices homeowners are making today.
Butcher Block Countertops
Butcherblock countertops can be manufactured from a variety of wood species and stained to match whichever color you’d like. They’re a beautiful option for homes with a more natural aesthetic, but they do require a bit of maintenance and sealing in order to keep them in good condition.
Granite is one of the hardest, most durable countertop materials available. They’re heat resistant and scratch resistant, as long as they’re cleaned and sealed properly. Each granite countertop is unique in terms of its color and pattern, so you’re sure to impress guests and enjoy your one-of-a-kind piece for many years.
As a budget-friendly alternative, laminate countertops can mimic the looks of more expensive stone countertops. They’re made with a mixture of wood and paper products, and covered in a plastic laminated covering. They’re also known for their great durability and ease of installation.
Quartz countertops are engineered with a combination of quartz and resin. This makes them nonporous and highly durable, resistant to just about anything. As one of the most durable and low-maintenance countertop options, you’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful quartz countertop with minimal hassle and worry.
Trending Countertop Styles
At Standard Kitchens, our experts keep a close eye on the newest trends in countertop design. We’re proud to provide you with a selection that aligns with current trends, including:
- Bold Black and White – If you have a minimalist vision in mind, these solid colored stone countertops are a bold option that offer a sleek, clean appearance.
- Dramatic Stones – If you prefer a more stately piece, stone countertops with unique, abundant veining patterns are the perfect solution to capture visual interest.
- Honed – While polished countertops are a popular choice, many homeowners are starting to turn towards honed, matte styles for a more casual, natural feel.
- Waterfall – If you love the look of your countertop, why cut it off at the surface edge? Waterfall countertops bring a beautiful, continuous line of countertop material from the top of your counter, all the way down to the floor — adding elegance in a refined, unique way.
