  • Choosing Countertop Materials – Corian, Quartz or Granite?

Every homeowner dreams of that designer kitchen with a functional layout, quality finishes, and high-end appliances. While remodeling an entire kitchen is an exciting project, sometimes, even a small refresh goes a long way in enhancing the value and appeal of your home. One such quick and easy makeover is changing the kitchen countertop and selecting an attractive surface that livens up your entire cook space. However, with the extensive range of countertop materials available in the market, choosing the right countertop can be quite overwhelming. From the materials, colors, and veining patterns, to textures, thickness and finishes, it is easy to get lost in the world of countertops. 

Are you stuck trying to choose between gorgeous granite, tough quartz, or high-performing Corian? The kitchen remodeling experts at Bucks County Cabinetry & Design can help you decide between the various materials based on your lifestyle, cooking habits, and budget.

Quick Tips for Smart Countertop Choices 

A kitchen countertop is not something that you may change frequently. Choose wisely, so that you do not regret your decision. Here is a look at some of the key qualities of different types of countertop materials to help make the smart choice.

  • Granite: As a natural, ultra-durable material, you can rarely go wrong with granite. With hundreds of thousands of unique designs, colors and patterns, granite is an excellent choice for most kitchens. This hardy material is resistant to spills, heat, stains, and scratches and does not need any specific maintenance, except periodic resealing to ensure it lasts for years.
  • Quartz: An extremely practical, low maintenance, value-for-money option, quartz offers a fair degree of uniformity in colors, veining, textures, and finishes. This man-made stone is resistant to heat, spills, and nicks, and is easy to clean and maintain. Families with young kids and busy parents will find quartz an ideal fit due to its hardiness and minimal upkeep.
  • Corian®: A non-porous, man-made surface that is resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria, Corian® is a time-tested, solid surface countertop that comes in a variety of colors and finishes. One of the biggest advantages of this countertop is that the seams are almost entirely invisible, which allows the stone to shine as the centerpiece of the kitchen. When you see one giant, continuous slab with no joints, it is most likely a solid stone countertop, such as Corian®.

Choosing between these surfaces is about prioritizing your needs and preferences. Granite’s dramatic look and natural color variations make it a great choice for adding drama to your kitchen. The simplicity and versatility of quartz is ideal for those who prioritize easy maintenance and convenience. Corian® can accommodate any aesthetic, from contemporary minimal to traditional country-style kitchen. The price of Corian® can vary widely based on the stone you select.
