Granite is a popular choice for countertops at the moment, although it is one of the more expensive materials that you will find. However, despite the fact that it is more expensive, it is a lot easier to maintain, and it is a lot more durable than other materials, so it makes a good choice for those busier kitchens. Tiles are another popular choice for kitchen countertops, and they are easy to install, although there is one major disadvantage to tiled countertops, and that is that they are fragile and difficult to maintain and clean. This is due to the fact that mildew and mold can start to grow in between the tiles, and this needs to be cleaned using a special cleaning solution.
A granite kitchen countertop, for instance, is the top choice for those who can afford it. If you have the money to spare, then you should consider choosing a granite kitchen countertop. As far as elegance and beauty go, a good quality granite countertop just can't be beat. They will compliment and enhance the rest of your kitchen wonderfully. Granite countertops do need care, though, so use common sense if you choose to buy one. Don't place extremely hot or cold food on top of it.
The variety of surface you choose will depend on just how your countertops are utilized. If you use your countertops for food preparation, then you want countertop surfaces that won't chip or pit easily and are scratch-and heat-resistant. (Of course, you will still want to use cutting boards and pot holders for hot dishes). If you plan for your countertops to retain your small appliances and/or cooking utensils holders, you can pick a different type of countertop surface. You will still need to keep in mind that some small appliances such as toasters, fat-reducing grills, and small microwave ovens designed to sit on countertops may still emit heat and may damage a surface that is not heat-resistant.
