While there are certainly a wide range of countertops that can be used in a kitchen, there are a few that stand out as the all-stars of the bunch, including granite, stainless steel, marble, tile, concrete, quartz and wood. Granite is a durable, timeless and scratch- and heat-resistant countertop surface. It's easy to clean and is solid throughout, making it the perfect option for a heavily used kitchen area. Be sure to periodically seal a granite surface in order to preserve its natural design.
A kitchen countertop can establish the overall look of your kitchen design, so it is important to choose one that will best work with both your stylistic taste and the level of activity within your space. Granite, Corian, concrete and stainless steel are all top choices for a kitchen that will see a lot of traffic and food preparation. All of these surfaces are durable and made from materials that are resistant to scratches and most staining.
When it comes to kitchen countertops, tile has been replaced by natural stone, solid surfaces and environmentally friendly alternatives. "Homeowners are moving away from tile countertops, which are difficult to maintain, in favor of natural stone, solid surfaces and environmentally friendly 'green' products," says Margaret Began, owner and showroom manager of Stoneworks Ltd. in Bedford, Ohio.
