Best counter top materials for Kitchen

Granite

Granite is one of the hardest natural stones mined from the earth, then it is cut into slabs and polished before installation, granite is the go-to material in countertop options.

Pros:

  • It’s super strong, heat-resistant and can stand up to extreme levels of wear and tear.
  • Granite comes in a myriad natural colour (off-white, pink, black, green) and patterns (speckled, swirls, streaks, waves).
  • The price varies, depending on colour, thickness and patterns, thus making it accessible to all.

Cons

  • Its natural variations in colour could work against it for those who like a consistent, uniform look. This also makes it harder to later replace a part of it with an exactly matching piece.
  • Natural stones are porous; while granite is far less so than others, it still requires to be sealed at installation.
