Kitchen Countertop FAQs

What type of kitchen countertop lasts the longest?

In terms of toughness, quartz is the best choice. This artificially created stone countertop is a very durable surface that resembles genuine stone. It is made of crushed quartz stone combined with resin and polymers.

Which countertop is easiest to maintain?

The simplest counters to maintain in the short term are those made of man-made materials, such as laminate or stainless steel. These are easier to clean and typically only require a quick wipe down with warm water and a light dish soap.

How thick should countertops be?

Natural stone countertops in kitchens, bathrooms, and other rooms are typically 1.25 inches thick. Without using a plywood backing, this thickness offers the strength and stability needed to produce a consistent surface.

What is the back of a counter called?

The vertical surface at the back of a countertop is known as a backsplash. Water, grease, and other substances that can harm or stain the wall behind the sink and stove so we recommend putting a backsplash in these places.

Which countertop edge is best?

The bullnose edge, also known as a rounded edge, is one of the most common countertop edge styles, especially for bathrooms. It produces a gentle profile rather than sharp edges, which helps to create a cozier, friendlier atmosphere.

What is a drop edge countertop?
