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.
But even a hard wood cannot withstand very high temperatures. Polymer countertops are not really recommended as they don’t give value for money, though they can certainly afford a polished and modern look to a kitchen. Quartz is similar to granite in many respects - it is extremely durable and heat resistant. Although it can be very pretty, the cost of quartz can sometimes be even higher than that of granite, and a quartz worktop is more liable to crack that a granite worktop.
