Corian countertops are extremely durable, more costly, and are an attempt to mimic a natural stone look for a more affordable price. Tile has been used for centuries and is popular choice in Europe and South American kitchen designs. If one tile is damaged it can be removed and replaced without having to replace the whole countertop. Natural materials come in tile form also, and are a great compromise in both style and price. Concrete countertops have been more popular recently, but are losing their appeal, because of higher upkeep involved and change of consumer taste. For the eco-conscious consumer, there are more choices of recycled materials being used in countertops. One popular choice is recycled colored glass bits set in a polyresin matrix producing an Art Deco look that is colorful, durable, and earth-friendly.
Color Choices: Your choices of colors or patterns for your countertops are virtually unlimited. You can create whatever combination you want for your countertops and kitchen. Natural materials, by their very nature, have a variety of patterns within the natural material. It is this randomness, which makes them so appealing to many consumers. Granites, particularly come in a wide variety of colors, grains, and patterns which can vary greatly, even in the same slab. While this randomness is appealing, it can offer a challenge to the installer to make large countertops appear seamless. One solution to this is using granite tiles to control or accent the randomness, depending on your preference.
Quartz is extremely hard, non-porous, and very elegant. Hardwood countertops are very beautiful, do require a little more upkeep, and are more forgiving to dishes if they are dropped on wood countertops, than granite or quartz. Manmade materials include laminates, Corian, tile, and concrete. Laminates are inexpensive and durable, though they can be scratched or burnt relatively easily.
