How To Find the Perfect Countertops For Your Kitchen and Bathroom


Kitchens and bathrooms may not have much in common, but they are rooms that are frequently remodeled — and rooms where the countertops make a big difference. So whether you’re working on a kitchen or bathroom remodel, the countertops you choose are likely a major decision. Kitchen and bathroom remodeling companies like MBC Remodeling can help you go over your choices and find the right kitchen and bathroom countertops for you.

Countertop Materials

Do you often hear people talk about granite countertops or quartz countertops? These are a few coveted options, and though on the pricey end, they’re likely to last longer than more affordable countertops. However, you have a wide range of options when it comes to kitchen or bathroom countertop materials, including:

  • Concrete (ground or trowel)
  • Butcher’s block wood
  • Laminate (a budget friendly option)
  • Marble
  • Granite
  • Quartz

These all vary in terms of cost, durability, and appearance. If you want something that’s more budget friendly, laminate countertops might be the right option. If you want a rustic look, butcher’s block or concrete might be better. Marble, granite, and quartz are all more expensive options, but very durable and hard to beat in terms of appearance.

Maintenance

Do you eat out frequently or do you generally cook at home? Do you have a long morning routine in front of the bathroom sink or do you just brush your hair and teeth and move on? The amount that you use your kitchen and bathroom countertops makes a difference. If you want something that’s durable and low maintenance, you might want to pay more for stone surface countertops such as marble, granite, or quartz. If you don’t get much use out of them, however, laminate might continue to look great for a long time without the cost of the more expensive countertops, and butcher’s block makes an excellent natural looking option.

Aesthetic

The color of your countertops will also make an impact on the room aesthetically. Some, like butcher’s block, tend to come in their natural color. However, quartz, marble, and granite often come in different colors and pattern variations, depending on the stone used. Laminate can also come in a wide variety of styles, and even concrete can come in different colors. You want countertops that accentuate the aesthetic of the room. Sometimes countertops are even the centerpiece around which the rest of the room’s style revolves.
