The Pros & Cons of 5 Custom Countertop Options, New Britain, Connecticut

Custom countertops are an excellent way to achieve a unique look in your kitchen. The team at Leo’s Kitchen & Stair Corp. offers a variety of options to choose from, and they want you to consider the pros and cons of each. All of their counters can contribute to the beauty of your home and provide benefits, such as heat or scratch resistance, but which one is right for you?

Here are some custom countertops to review before making your final decision:

  • Glass: Glass countertops offer a sleek and polished look. They are resistant to heat and stains and look fabulous when illuminated. Glass withstands light scratching but is subject to chipping, particularly along the edges.

  • custom countertopsConcrete: Concrete must be poured and is, therefore, easy to customize with embedded items, such as glass or stone. It is highly durable and ideal for outdoor kitchens. However, concrete requires regular sealing and can break under too much weight.

  • Stainless Steel: These custom countertops provide a contemporary look in addition to being durable and easy to clean. It is vulnerable to scratching; however, it looks new again with a little polish. Stainless steel countertops are also among the more expensive options.

  • Reclaimed Wood: Reclaimed wood countertops are highly sustainable and add considerable character to your kitchen. While durable, they easily become breeding grounds for bacteria if not properly sealed. Additionally, reclaimed wood countertops are not heat-resistant.

  • Lava: This unique kitchen counter option offers both beauty and durability, as it is created from lava stone and is impervious to cracking, chipping, heat, and staining. Unfortunately, it costs hundreds of dollars per square foot.
