What Kind of Countertop Should You Buy?

For homeowners in Mississauga, kitchen countertop choices can have a huge impact on the entire kitchen and even the rest of the home. Many of us use our countertops at least daily and the look of the countertop will greatly affect the overall look of the kitchen. The countertop needs to be functional and able to stand up to continual stress over time. Countertops are often used for food preparation so the material chosen should be hygienic and bacteria resistant. The material should also be resistant to water and other sources of moisture. Scratch resistance and heat resistance are other important factors to consider when choosing a replacement countertop.
Functionality and performance are important factors, but appearance is often more important for most consumers.  The ability to combine both beauty and unrivaled performance are the driving factors behind the increase in demand for premium countertop materials such as natural stone and engineered stone. These materials exude elegance and timeless style while boasting industry-leading durability. The price points are higher than traditional materials such as laminate, but premium countertops are known to last long enough to justify the additional upfront costs.

Natural Stone Countertops

When most people think of premium natural stone countertops, granite is the material that will come to mind. Granite has a hardness rating that is second only to diamonds among naturally occurring materials. Granite is able to stand up to the normal stresses that countertops encounter very easily. The natural texture and vein patterns present in granite create a highly-appreciated appearance that will never go out of style.
Marble is another luxurious natural stone countertop option that will transform the look of the kitchen. The luster of polished marble is world-renowned for providing refined style and beauty. A marble countertop will instantly become a source of pride for the entire home and a conversation piece for any guests.
Natural stone such as marble and granite are porous and must be resealed in order to maintain an impenetrable barrier for moisture and bacteria. This sealant also serves to improve the stain resistance and simplify cleaning of the countertops.

Engineered Stone Countertops

Quartz is the most popular engineered stone countertop option available today. Quartz countertops are fabricated using ground up quartz that is bonded using specialized polymers and resins. Pigments can be added to the process to produce almost any color possible. The refinement of the quartz used in the fabrication will create different patterns in the countertop ranging from smooth to rougher textures. The hardness of quartz rivals granite and the durability is also among the top in the industry. Unlike natural stone, quartz countertops will never have to be resealed.

Remnant Countertops

Remnant countertops allow homeowners in Mississauga to enjoy the benefits of a natural or engineered stone countertop at considerable savings. Sometimes during the cutting process, there are pieces of materials left over that are large enough to be used for other kitchen countertop projects. The top countertop fabricators will offer a selection of remnant materials such as granite, marble and quartz that has passed the same strict quality restrictions as the original materials.
