Choosing the best type of countertops
Deciding what kind of countertops would go best in your kitchen is a difficult choice. Luckily, our showrooms have a spectacular selection so you can see in person exactly what each type of countertop would look like. Feeling and touching each surface gives you an idea of what to expect and seeing the colors and styles personally helps you visualize that material in your kitchen easier. Bringing a photo of your kitchen so you can match the walls, flooring and cabinets is a good tip for picking what will look good. Memory only goes so far and this way, you can hold the photo up to the actual stone and envision it better.
Selecting your Chesterfield countertop with confidence
You might find it difficult to pick which type of countertop suits your needs. Educating yourself about each type of stone will help you understand which best suits your needs and preferences. Here are a few examples:
- Granite: This type of countertop will always add value to your home and does not depreciate in value if kept in good condition. Its one-of-a-kind natural surface is sanitary and does not harbor bacteria like other surfaces can. Because it is formed with heat and pressure, it can withstand the heat of hot hair tools and pans without any problem. It is easy to clean and can stay looking beautiful for decades to come. There is a little work required and that involves sealing the granite surface every year. It can be done professionally or yourself with a store bought granite sealer to keep the surface nonporous.
- Marble: As a timeless statement, marble adds elegance to any room it is added to. Though it is one of the softer stones and scratches easily, it does have other benefits that make it perfect for bathrooms, offices and fireplaces. Within the kitchen, care should be taken when using knives as this surface can scratch and stain. If marble is used in a kitchen, a high quality sealer is recommended to keep the porous surface from staining. Marble is excellent when it comes to heat and handles hot items well.
- Soapstone: Soapstone is a versatile type of countertop and goes with any decor. It is durable and resistant to scratches. If scratches do occur over time, they are easily sanded out. It is a nonporous material and requires no seal coat to keep it looking beautiful. It is completely heat resistant and withstands damage from any types of spills or acidic liquids. Very little maintenance is required, though homeowners prefer to use mineral oil as it darkens the look over time giving it a more rustic appearance.
- Quartz: In comparison to other stone countertops, quartz is relatively new but has gained popularity as an extremely durable and attractive countertop option. It is nonporous and does not require sealing. This low maintenance “engineered stone” is a perfect choice for the bathroom or kitchen, as it does not harbor bacteria. It is not as heat resistance as some countertop materials, so care should be taken with hot pots and hair styling tools.
