Top 10 Kitchen Countertops

There are lots of options on the market for kitchen countertops in Southeast Georgia. Overholt Homes lists the top 10 choices so that you can make an educated choice when we take care of your kitchen remodeling project.

1. Granite Counters

Granite is the kitchen countertop material of choice. Granite countertops define elegance in a kitchen. As the use of granite becomes more widespread, the price comes down. The beauty of the stone contributes to the beauty of even the most modest kitchen.

2. Engineered Stone

Engineered stone countertops are composed of 93% quartz particles. It is available in a larger range of colors than granite and has a nonporous surface that resists scratches. It’s easy to maintain, without the annual sealing required by natural stone.

3. Solid Surface

Because solid surface countertops are just what they’re called, solid, any scratches can be sanded out. The countertops are custom-made to your specifications by companies such as AvoniteCorian, and Swanstone.
Pros: comes in a rainbow of colors and patterns; seamless; stain resistant.
Cons: vulnerable to hot pans and stains which can damage the surface

4. Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile countertops are durable and easy to clean. Add to that inexpensive and you’ve got a really good choice for countertops for the average home. Because it’s installed a section at a time, it can be done by most resourceful homeowners.

5. Laminates

Laminate countertops bear trademarks such as FormicaNevamar, andWilsonart. They’re made of plastic-coated synthetics with a smooth surface that’s easy to clean. The pieces are cut to size and finished on the ends.

6. Wood or Butcher Block

Wood countertops offer a beautiful warm look and are available in a wide range of colors and finishes. Hardwoods such as maple and oak are most often used as countertop woods.

7. Stainless Steel Counters

For a really contemporary and industrial look for your kitchen, stainless steel countertops are a good choice. They are heat resistant and durable. Because they’re constructed to your specifications, you can have a seamless countertop.

8. Soapstone Counters

Soapstone countertops are generally dark gray in color and have a smooth feel. It is often seen in historic homes but is also used in modern homes as both a countertop and sink material.

9. Marble

Because of it’s extremely high price tag, marble is not often seen on the countertops of whole kitchens. To get the luxurious look, use it on an island or inset at a baking center. Marble countertops require constant maintenance, as they easily stain. Some new sealers retard staining.

10. Concrete Counters

If you have countertops in unusual shapes, concrete countertops may be a good choice.
