Brakur-_Countertops_2A lot of time goes into the planning and design of a kitchen.  Typically homeowners spend most of their time choosing the layout, style of cabinets, and looking into their flooring options.  When it comes to countertops many people go with the current trend and don’t look at other alternatives.  They don’t spend the time researching like they do for their cabinet and flooring choices.  In fact many typically end up putting in granite because that seems to be the thing to do these days or laminate because it fits into their budget.   

Unfortunately, they are doing themselves a huge disservice when they don’t take the time to research the different countertop options.  Homeowners would be surprised to find out there is and array of choices when it comes to choosing the right countertop material.  It might surprise homeowners to discover that there are other engineered stones such as quartz that for about the same price as granite, are less maintenance and have more color choices.  Knowing the pros and cons of the different countertop choices can help you make a more educated decision and not have surprises in the end.  You will be more confident in knowing that you got the right countertop for your home.
