1. Find Your Perfect Surface

    Updating your counter top in your kitchen or bathroom is an easy way to change the feel of your room. There are a few things to consider before rushing out to buy one, though! Depending on your choice, there could be some added maintenance involved. Marble, especially light marble, should be resealed about every 3 to 6 months. Granite, however can be sealed annually. Quartz and quartzite are great choices because they need no maintenance and are extremely durable!

    Counter tops made from concrete are a great choice as well because they can easily be custom made to fit any size or shape! You can personalize it even more by adding a colored stain. But, they need much more maintenance than even marble! Experts suggest sealing with a wax monthly!  Butcher block counter tops are great since you never need to pull out a cutting board. They add a really warm feeling to any kitchen and look great with any style from traditional to modern.

    We’ve added a picture of a zinc counter top. Metal counter tops have been around for centuries but are great since they’re nonporous, so you don’t need to worry about bacteria sinking in at all like you would with some other options. Zinc, like all metal counter tops, will develop a patina; zinc’s being a great blueish-grey.

    Besides the types mentioned above, we’ve also included a few other of our favorite counter tops to show you just how many options there really are.

    We hope we’ve given you great food for thought! And don’t worry: there’s a great counter top out there for you!
