Kitchen Improvements

Different types of countertops for your kitchen or bathroom remodel.

Choosing countertops is one of the harder things for people to decide on in a bathroom or kitchen remodel. Since colors and patterns are more personal taste, we have put together this simple guide for the industry’s most popular selections. There are plenty of other type’s of countertops available but please take the time to read reviews on some of them, we have seen these products not live up to what the manufactor sells them as.

Granite Countertops

Nothing beats the natural beauty and uniqueness that granite offers. By far the most popular countertop in the country. The options are endless as each piece is unique and depending on the location it is from can be absolutely stunning. Granite does need to be sealed as it is porous.

This product can cost $60-120 per sq. ft.

Wood Countertops

Another natural material that can give your kitchen or bathroom a beautiful look. With all the woods available for use you will have a limitless amount of options. Finish and care are important if you choose a wood countertop but it can be the centerpieces of your room.

Prices can range from $35-$250 per sq. ft.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is becoming an ever increasing countertop of choice. It doesn’t fit everyone style or design but it will give you the perfect touch for that modern industrial look you may be looking for.

Price range per square foot: $70-$150

Engineered Stone Countertops

Engineered stone is typically 90% Quartz and 10% resin. Some of the name brands are Cambria, Ceasarstone, and Silestone. This products are some of the most popular countertops being installed today. The best thing about them is they are non-porous which never requires them to be sealed. These products have almost no drawbacks to them. We love these countertops!

Prices range from $60-$120 per sq. ft.

Glass Countertops

Glass countertops are stunning in almost any place you could imagine. Almost any color, shape, or size can be created with glass. Glass countertops are strong and very heat resistant but fingerprints and scratches are common, making it not an ideal countertop for everyone.

Prices range from $100-$300 per sq. ft.

Remember just as important as a quality product is the installation. Most of these countertops are speciality products and should be installed by trained professional’s that specialize in this.
