High End Countertop Options for Your Bathroom or Kitchen
Granite Countertops: One of the most elegant and desired countertop materials is granite. Granite is a very durable and beautiful material that comes in a variety of color and patterns. However, it is one of the most expensive material types used for countertops.
Quartz Countertops: Quartz, or sometimes referred to as an engineered stone countertop, is distinguished among all other natural stone. Quartz is a combination of quartz crystals in high density and other natural elements. It too is very durable. However, it does need regular care and maintenance.
Laminate Countertops: Another popular or desired countertop material is laminate. Laminate comes in a wide range of colors and patterns, imitating natural stone and wood. They are also one of most affordable materials and are easily cleaned and cared for.
Concrete Countertops: One of the newer material types that is rapidly growing in popularity is concrete countertops. Depending on the ability of the installer, concrete comes in many colors and patterns that can convince anyone that it is natural stone. Concrete is very porous, which means it is prone to erosion. It is important to maintain the concrete’s protective seal and keep them clean to prevent erosion.
Recycled Glass Countertops: Want a unique design and feel to your kitchen? Then recycled glass countertops can provide it. They vary in patterns and colors, depending on the types of glass and plaster material used. This countertop can never be duplicated
Butcherblock Countertops: Butcherblock countertops are a wooden countertop that is sealed and protected. Like the recycled glass, each piece of wood used for manufacturing a butcherblock countertops is never the same. The wood will vary in color and grain which provides either a rustic or modern feel. They bring a touch of nature to the kitchen or bathroom.
Marble Countertops: Marble is a beautiful and expensive material and is also highly desired. It is very elegant and adds a touch of class to the home. However, marble is a soft stone and erodes very easily. If you decide to install marble, make sure you never let liquid stay on the surface too long. Keep the countertop clean and have it resealed as needed.
Solid Surface Countertops: Made from a synthetic material, a solid surface countertop comes in over 100 colors and patterns.

If scratches or divots occur, you can sand down the surface until it’s smooth and refinish the surface for a clean shine. It is a very forgiving and easily maintained material.
