One of the main factors that affect the selection of the kitchen countertop is the budget that is available to spend on it. Home owners have to arrive at an amount that can be made ready before taking the decision. There are basically four types of kitchen worktops that are available for the home owner to choose from. These are wood, granite, polymer and quartz. Each material comes in different price ranges and has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Wood: Nothing evokes Old World charm as much as wood kitchen countertops. Think butcher’s blocks and massive central islands in farmhouses of yore. Wood also provides a warmth to your kitchen, unlike stone, steel, or the omnipresent laminates. The most common woods used for kitchens baths are hardwoods like oak and maple. Wood is preferred by many because they are smooth and generally easy to clean. They can also be resanded and resealed if necessary. However, wood can also be damaged by stains and is not as heat-resistant to stone, so the kitchen owner must always use pot protectors.
