One of the first questions we’re always asked when we begin the design process of kitchen remodeling in St. Louis, MO, is what the best kitchen countertop materials are. That answer varies on your family and how you plan to use and live in the space. Choosing the right kitchen countertop material involves a great deal of personal preference, such as the look you want, but there are also other criteria you should consider when choosing a countertop material. Here we’ve listed some of the top countertops for the modern kitchen remodel.
Laminate: Laminate countertops are the perennial standby when it comes to kitchen and bathroom countertop choices. Once regarded as cheap or fake-looking, modern laminates are pushing the boundaries with laminates that are steadily improving in appearance.
Granite: Granite has been and will likely always be regarded as the premium countertop material. Granite counters have a deep, rich, complex appearance that cannot be duplicated in any man-made material.
Quartz: Quartz countertops – a form of engineered stone – are made from natural stone byproducts (leftover rubble from quarrying), which are pulverized and blended with resins to form slabs. Quartz countertops look fantastic, plus they have dozens of different looks available, ranging from granite and marble look-alikes to very unique, modern colors and patterns.
