Granite is available in a variety of shades - such as blacks, whites, greens, corals and beiges - and no two pieces are exactly the same. Granite is available in two finishes. A polished finish, the most popular, results in a shiny look and often darkens the appearance of the stone, while honed and leather finishes are soft and matte. Costs for granite depend on many variables, including color, finish and origin of the stone. Professional installation is included in the pricing.
Other natural stone materials, like slate and soapstone, are softer than granite and require delicate use and greater care. All stone countertops must be sealed periodically.
Engineered stone countertops come in a wider variety of colors than natural stone countertops, are more durable and are easy to maintain and do not require periodic sealing. Typically these are a quartz material and may be easier recognized by brand names like Cambria, Zodiaq, & Silestone. These products tend to be colored much more uniformly than granite and the product is frequently confused for granite. However, engineered stone won't save any money over granite: the two materials cost roughly the same. Like Granite, these products also include professional installation in their pricing.
Solid surface countertops, most commonly known as Corian, have a lot of appeal. They come in countless colors, are seamless, resist stains and scratches can be buffed out. The sink can even be molded into the countertop for a seamless installation. Costs can vary depending on color, layout, sink & backsplash options. Professional installation is also included in the pricing of this surface.
Wood countertops, like butcher block, come in a variety of woods and can instantly warm up a kitchen. They are easy to clean and any scratches can be sanded out. Water can damage unfinished butcher block quite easily, so unfinished wood countertops must be oiled monthly to seal the surface. High quality wood countertops come with a waterproof finish. Overall, these are a very high maintenance option. This product can be installed by contractors or handy homeowners.
Laminate is the most affordable countertop material on the market and comes in thousands of colors and designs. With high definition printing and textures, many of today's laminates simulate granite so well they can fool even trained eyes. Like wood, laminate pricing can include installation or can be installed by a contractor or a crafty do-it-yourself homeowner.
On The Edge - Square and beveled are the most common edges on countertops, but decorative edges like radius, bull nose, and ogee - while a bit more expensive - are another way to customize a kitchen. Availability of edges varies based on countertop materials.
