Top 3 Countertop Materials For Your Dream Kitchen

When it comes to selecting kitchen countertops, you need one that can withstand your lifestyle demands. With exposure to water, heat, and sharp knives, countertops need to be durable. Columbia Kitchens is here to help you choose the right countertop materials for your kitchen. The following are our top 3 countertop materials any kitchen can benefit from having:

Corian Countertops

Corian countertops are an excellent choice for your kitchen if you are going for a seamless look. Your sink and backsplashes can be integrated into the top as one piece, which isn’t an option that you’ll find with any type of stone surface. Corian is an acrylic, which means that it is easy to clean, very customizable, and resistant to heat up to 400 degrees. You can also repair it in the event that you scratch it. There is a wide variety of edges to choose from, with even more options here than you’ll find in granite or quartz.

Granite Countertops

If you’re looking for stylish and durable, look no further. Granite is a stone material which can withstand just about anything. It is a natural material, which means that every piece is unique, and will require you to choose a specific slab  at the stone yard since every piece is different. The inconsistent patterning with every color highlights the beauty of the natural stone, leaving you with an original look that can’t be duplicated. The glossy finish of granite will give your kitchen an elegant, bold look that any visitor would envy.

Quartz Countertops

If you desire the look of granite, but prefer a more consistent pattern, go for a quartz countertop. Quartz countertops can give your kitchen a softer feel than granite, because of the consistent variation that they have to offer. Quartz tops are resistant to heat, moisture, scratches and stains. Choose from a variety of colors and designs to create your dream kitchen.
