Advantages & Disadvantages of Countertops

  • Durability
    Granite is extremely durable, as it is impossible to scratch or stain. Marble and concrete can be stained and scratched but are otherwise durable. Laminate counters are strong but can be scuffed, while tile counters can crack. Wood countertops are strong and durable, but excessive moisture can cause swelling and warping.
    Aesthetics
    Natural stone and wood counters look just like the materials they are made from. Solid-surface counters are made from a combination of stone and resin, which allows them to mirror the appearance of real stone. Tile countertops can be created with any design or color, while laminate counters can look like wood or stone. Stone counters are the hardest, so any dish you drop on a stone counter is likely to break.
    Cost and Value
    Natural stone countertops are the most expensive, though they also add value to a home. They are capable of lasting longer than any other material, as well, so they won't need frequent replacement. Tile and laminate countertops are on the cheap end of the spectrum, though they may need to be replaced every decade or two and won't affect a home's value. Installation costs of heavy materials like stone and wood are higher. Support may also be needed under the counters to ensure that they won't collapse.
    Maintenance
    Tile countertops have grout lines and take longer to clean because of the dirt that collects in them. You can clean most wood countertops with soap and water. Dry them immediately after you sponge them off. Wipe up spills immediately to prevent staining. Use a soft toothbrush to remove sticky particles. Avoid using cleaning agents on natural stone, concrete and wood counters. Stone counters can be polished to enhance their sheen. Consider sealing wood and stone counters to enhance their look and durability. All counters should be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent food and dirt from building up and causing damage.In both the bathroom and the kitchen, countertops are almost a necessity. In the bathroom, they're where you put your toothbrush holder. In the kitchen, they're where you prepare your food. A quality counter needs to withstand heavy use, maintain its appearance and fit your budget. Different countertop materials have advantages and disadvantages, depending on your needs and preferences.
