There is a wide selection of countertops, which, most commonly, is a choice made for the kitchen. From a variety of natural stone selections to wood, stainless steel, and even laminate, kitchen countertops are a matter of budget, design, and function. A popular choice in today’s designer community are marble countertops, which offer beautiful gray-tone veining etched within a clean, creamy canvas that just shouts “high-end.” With gleaming surfaces and complex, intricate patterns, countertops are statement makers. Another option trending are quartz countertops. Where previously marginalized for lack of choice, this category of countertops now comes in distinctive reds, greens, and other colors, providing a suitable design alternative to granite.
