Recently, there are many countertops types we can opt for. One of them is engineered quartz. It contains of a mix of ground natural quartz and polymer resins. It is stronger than granite. It is also durable and requires little maintenance. It resists bacteria, stains, scratches and moisture too. But, we should avoid placing hot cookware directly on top of it, since heat damages quartz countertop. Then, concrete is also one of the countertop types. However, it is porous, easily stained and crack.

Stainless steel is other countertops types we can choose. We can opt for a brushed or textured finish to help us hiding scratches. Stainless steels are resistant from bacteria, moisture and heat, but will stain if spills are not immediately cleaned, especially with acidic foods. Then, stone brings natural beauty of countertops. This countertop type includes granite, marble, soapstone, slate and limestone. Granite is hard and durable. It also resists heat, scratching and many chemicals. However, oil and grease will stain it. Limestone and marble are softer and more porous stones. They can scratch and stain easily, especially with acidic and oily foods. Meanwhile, the soapstone scratches easily, but resists acid.

Other countertops types we can choose are wood, solid surface, tile and laminate. Wood countertops look warm and natural. Some woods which are usually used are maple, cherry, oak, teak, walnut and mahogany. It requires regular sealing with oil or wax, especially around sinks. Solid surface countertops resist bacteria, cracks and chemicals. They are also non porous and durable. Then, tile countertops include ceramic, stone, porcelain and concrete. Meanwhile, laminate countertops are made from resin-treated and fused layers of paper. They come in numerous colors and patterns. It resists stains, scratches, moisture and bacteria, but not scratches and heat. By understanding all the countertop types, we can decide easily which countertop will we opt for then.
