3 Durable Options for Upgrading Your Kitchen Countertops, Anchorage, Alaska

Your kitchen is the most well-used room in your home, and as such, your countertops take a beating. Whether they’re starting to show their age or you’re looking to enhance the appearance of your home, upgrading your kitchen countertops with new and durable materials can help. At Rino’s Tile & Stone in Anchorage, AK, you can find the perfect countertops for your kitchen.

3 Materials for Your Kitchen Countertops

1. Quartz 

Kitchen countertopsQuartz countertops are made from a combination of resins and crushed stone to form a highly durable surface designed to withstand the demands most homeowners place on their kitchen counters. It’s impact-resistant, easy to clean, and doesn’t require special maintenance or sealant to protect the finish. Quartz is available in many colors and can even mimic the look of granite without as high of a price tag.

2. Ceramic Tile

Tile countertops give you the ultimate freedom of customization while providing the durability you expect in your kitchen. Ceramic tile is available in many colors, allowing you to create unique patterns and designs right on your main work surface. Though the tiles themselves are strong and heat-resistant, the grout can crack over time. Furthermore, the tile can break with impact, making it less ideal for those who frequently use heavy skillets and cookware.

3. Granite 

Granite is still one of the most popular materials for kitchen countertops—and for a good reason. It’s incredibly durable, naturally resistant to heat, and repels stains when properly sealed. As a natural stone, no two slabs look alike, helping you create a unique and sophisticated design in your kitchen. However, it does require regular maintenance and resealing, making it a bit more labor intensive than other options.

Don’t settle for the same cracked and damaged laminate counters. Let the kitchen countertop installation team at Rino’s Tile & Stone upgrade your home today. Visit their website to learn more about their selection, and call (907) 743-1075 to schedule an installation estimate.
