Take a more extensive look at natural, Eco friendly, plastic-based, and other countertop material options on their new website! In short, though, let's go over a quick overview of the materials.
Natural stone includes options such as granite, lava, and marble. These materials are considered to be the best in aesthetics adding beauty to any kitchen or bathroom. Stone is heat resistant and very durable but is porous which means sealing and regular resealing will be necessary. Natural stone is also among the most expensive of the countertop materials but it makes up for it with its beauty and strength.
Wood countertops add a natural warmth to any kitchen or bathroom. Butcherblock is perfect for a busy and active home chef, while reclaimed wood is an eco-friendly option to add wood counters to your home. Bamboo is another eco-friendly option that has the added benefit of being very affordable. The downside to wood countertops is that they are not heat or water-resistant. Thus, will need regular patience to keep the counters looking nice and staying clean.
If you strive to find a recycled or eco-friendly countertop option then take a look at paperstone and recycled glass. Paperstone is a good middle ground between wood and natural stone being that it is stronger than wood but more forgiving than stone. Recycled glass provides a beautiful, one-of-a-kind option for any home. While strong and easy to clean though, glass is hard to install so make sure you get a great contractor to have it placed properly.
Plastic-based countertops, which includes laminate, resin, solid-surface, and quartz, balances affordability with style variety. The biggest downfall to these countertops is the lack of heat-resistance and UV-Light resistance. On the positive side, these countertops are easy to maintain and don't require regular care such as re-sealing.
There are other materials too such as concrete, tile, porcelain, and stainless steel. These aren't as affordable as the plastic-based variety but come with unique aesthetics and overall durability that make it worth the consideration!
