Collection of 2013 Popular Countertop Materials

Updated:2013-05-07 11:41:24
Homeowners often ask which kitchen countertops are the most popular. Based on my own experience in the kitchen and bath industry, here are the top choices for kitchen countertops:

1 - Granite: Today's most popular countertop material is granite. Quarried from all over the world, granite is very hard and heat resistant. There are thousands of granite colors to match a variety of color schemes.

2 - Quartz: Engineered quartz kitchen countertops are an excellent choice for those who want a durable surface with a consistent appearance. The leading manufacturers include Caesarstone, Cambria, Silestone, and Zodiaq.

3 - Laminate: For small homes and rental properties, plastic laminate countertops are an affordable choice. Countertop laminate can look like wood, metal, and granite. The top brands include Wilsonart and Formica.

4 - Solid Surface: Corian is the most well-known manufacturer of solid surface / acrylic countertops in the world. Unlike laminate (a thin layer of hard plastic), Corian is a 1/2" slab of acrylic that can be shaped like granite.

5 - Tile: While the popularity of tile kitchen countertops has dropped in recent decades, designers sometimes use tile surfaces for dramatic effect in certain areas, such as on an island or wet bar, or in period kitchens.

6 - Other Products: Alternative countertop materials include concrete, glass, limestone, marble, onyx, recycled paper, semi-precious stone, slate, soapstone, stainless steel, Terrazzo, travertine, and wood.

Of course, before make a decision for your countertop materials, it's important to understand the differences in terms of durability, appearance, and cost. More information of the material, just feel free to login our website ( www.stonebtb.com ).
