The first question you should ask yourself is what is the most important aspect of your new countertop? For some people, beauty is viewed as being most important while durability is to others. Both are preferred by many, but each option will come with its own set of pros and cons. Some countertop surfaces such as granite are very hard and durable. Incidentally, granite was previous revered by the wealthy as the countertop of choice because of its durablility and beauty, but has since founds its way into the hearts and homes of citizens everywhere, thus making it an affordable option to many and well worth its cost. Durability and beauty are important to many people who are now choosing it over other less expensive options such as laminates.
Countertop Materials. Countertops that are covered in Formica are the most common as well as being the cheapest, however, they are likely to wear out quite quickly, and Formica covered countertops can be easily damaged. Placing a hot pan straight from the oven on to a Formica covered countertop can cause the material to bubble and crack, and this is damage will not be easy to repair, and could result in the replacement of that entire section. If you have the finances, a countertop that is made from a much more durable material is much more conducive to cooking and preparing food. Materials that can be used for kitchen countertops include marble and granite, as not only do they look good, but they are also very durable and hard wearing.
More traditional kitchens where the cupboards and cabinets were not painted often go very well with a granite countertop. A kitchen countertop made of granite goes very well with Cedar or Maplewood cabinets. The luster of the granite and the beauty of the hardwood will give the kitchen a very classy look that will bring great elegance not only to the room, but the entire home. Glass in this case would stick out too much as a result of the brightness of its color.
