Kitchen countertops at Villa Marble & Granite are available in a slew of materials. To choose the right one for your home in King of Prussia, Blue Bell, Wayne, or West Chester, there’s quite a bit you need to consider.
If you’re trying to decide which material is best for you, here are a few things to consider when choosing new countertops.
Countertop Style & Design
From granite to marble, every type of kitchen countertop material has its own overall design. So, you’ll want to think about what would best complement the space. While each material comes in both light and dark colors as well as a variety of patterns, there are still many options to choose from.
For example, if your kitchen’s motif is a bit on the darker side, try a light marble or quartzite to brighten up the room. On the other hand, if your kitchen is lighter, a dark granite or quartz can balance everything out beautifully.
Countertop Durability & Versatility
Many countertops are durable, but each one offers different benefits depending on the strength you need for your kitchen remodel. Granite, quartz, and quartzite countertops are three of the most resilient materials available. Each is scratch- and chip-resistant and can handle high levels of heat quite well for short periods of time.
Marble is also scratch resistant, but it won’t be able to withstand high temperatures as well as other options. However, it can stay cooler, making it an ideal surface for countertops. Also, marble is more flexible than other natural stones. That means it can be used for more intricate edges and designs in your kitchen remodel.
Countertop Maintenance & Care
If you’re thinking about adding natural stone countertops to your remodel, it’s important to know a few key maintenance tips to preserve its overall condition. For example, since granite, quartzite, and marble are porous materials, you should clean up any spills on the surface promptly to avoid stains and etching.
It’s also crucial that homeowners have their natural stone countertops sealed regularly to preserve their appearance and durability. Typically, professional sealings should be performed when the countertops are installed and every year after.
Quartz is a manmade countertop material, and it doesn’t need to be sealed regularly. Also, it’s not porous, so you won’t need to worry too much about stains or etching. However, you should still take the time to clean it to keep it looking its best.
