Which Kitchen Counter Material Is Right for You?, New Britain, Connecticut

Are you remodeling your kitchen? Once you've decided on the kitchen cabinets and the other new elements, don’t forget to install custom countertops! As the premier kitchen design company of New Britain, CT, Leo's Kitchen & Stair Corp. works with numerous materials. 

To help you decide which kitchen counter material is best for you, they've outlined some of the most popular types:kitchen counter

  • Quartz: Want custom countertops that are stain-free, scratch-resistant, and able to withstand even the most extreme temperatures? Ask Leo's Kitchen & Stair Corp. about their selection of quartz countertops, which have non-porous surfaces that don't require sealant. Quartz has the beauty and durability of natural stone but requires less maintenance.

  • Granite: Many homeowners choose granite as a high-end accent to a new kitchen remodeling project. Not only does granite add to your home's value, but it's incredibly durable and long-lasting. It requires more care than quartz does, including at least an annual sealant re-application, but its natural beauty makes granite worth it for many proud homeowners.

  • Plastic Laminate: If you're on a budget but still want great-looking custom countertops, you may be interested in using laminate. Plastic laminate countertops require very little maintenance and can even resemble natural stone or quartz. Leo's Kitchen & Stair Corp. offers plastic laminates from top manufacturers like Formica and Wilsonart.

  • Solid Surface Materials: Acrylic-based solid surface kitchen counters combine the best of natural and man-made materials into a heat-resistant, waterproof surface. They're easy to clean, hold up in the most heavy-duty commercial environments, and are available in many colors and patterns. Trusted manufacturers include Corian, Gibraltar® (by Wilsonart), and Surell.
