Countertop Buying Guide

When considering what countertop should go in a kitchen, shop, or entertaining room, there are quite a few materials and designs to choose from—to go with granite, Formica, marble, quartz, or laminate? What room, office, or home the countertop will go in often dictates the quality and material you wish to purchase. However, there are many more details to keep in mind.

If the countertop is for an office or shop, durable stone or metal might be the best choice to endure more daily abuse. For your personal home instead of a rental property, something durable, elegant, and easy to clean would be ideal. While these concerns are significant, what about edge profiles, seams, grain direction, surface polishes, and sealing?
