Most homeowners automatically think of granite countertops when considering an upgrade from their current countertop material because it’s the top idea of luxury and style. Granite is incredibly strong, elegantly beautiful and goes with any kitchen theme or style. Granite is seamless, so there’s no grout cleaning involved and when it’s professionally sealed will be non porous. The value of your kitchen remodel will certainly increase with the addition of granite, making it an excellent investment.
Marble is another luxury countertop that’s certain to add value to your kitchen remodel, and it’s a popular option among homeowners who prefer natural stone. The only issue with marble is the sealer, which at once protects the stone from scratches and stains but is also prone to damage itself, sometimes requiring resealing. On the other end of the scale, corian is increasingly popular as a synthetic surface, unlike natural stone granite and marble. However, corian is completely non porous (making it resistant to mold, stains and bacteria) and comes in an incredible range of colors and styles to suit any personal taste.
