Popular Kitchen Countertop Materials and Their Advantages

Jan 08, 2018

As one of the most visible parts of your kitchen, it can be tempting to select a countertop based on design alone. However, you need to consider its cost, durability and maintenance needs, as well. Not all materials offer the same benefits, so it’s important to ensure your choice matches your taste and lifestyle.

Popular Kitchen Countertop Materials and Their Advantages

Legacy Design Build Remodeling, your kitchen remodeling expert, discusses popular countertop materials and their advantages:


No other material can match the beauty of granite. This natural stone consists of various minerals that give it a distinctive and elegant appearance. Since it’s resistant to stain and scratches, it will maintain its appeal for a long time. With proper maintenance, it will deliver the performance you want for many years.


Tiles are usually made of ceramic, porcelain or glass. Unlike other countertop materials, they can match any kitchen style, from traditional to modern. They come in a wide array of colors, patterns and shapes for mostly affordable prices. Furthermore, they are durable, as they can last up to 50 years or more. All types are easy to clean, but you have to seal the grout every few years to prevent stain and bacteria. As your trusted remodeling contractor, we recommend this material if you’re looking for a versatile option.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel provides a sleek, neat appearance, making it a perfect choice for contemporary kitchens. It can complement decorative lighting, accents and fixtures. It also seamlessly blends with natural stone flooring and wood cabinetry. To ensure long-term benefits, choose a higher quality material that will hold its shape longer.
