Kitchen Counter Tops: What’s Trending for 2017?

Patterson Remodeling can ensure all your needs are met when you’re building your dream kitchen, a HUGE aspect of which being your counter tops. Choosing the right kitchen counter top can be tricky (and expensive!). Before splurging on such a big update, check out the pros and cons of the top kitchen countertop materials to help you select the right one for your space.

Quartz Countertops


Practically maintenance free, engineered quartz countertops are stain, acid, scratch, heat and impact resistant and, thanks to their non-porous surface, don’t need to be sealed like natural stone countertops. Available in a wide range of colors and patterns, quartz typically ranks close in popularity to the perennial top choice: granite.

Still the top choice of most homeowners, traditional granite countertops offer a high-end look that adds to your kitchen’s value while providing a durable prep surface. Because granite is a natural material, variation in the stone’s pattern is common and, for most people, adds to its appeal but can make matching up slabs tricky. In most regions, the cost of granite and quartz are comparable but natural granite requires a bit more care than manufactured quartz to keep its good looks — wipe up all stains quickly, especially oils, wine, acids and soda, and follow a regular sealing routine — typically once a year.

Laminate Countertops

Retro, mid-century looks like the ubiquitous boomerang and bright, saturated colors are other trendy choices to consider.



Wood Countertops

For a warm, cottage kitchen look, opt for butcher-block-style wood countertops. Both decorative and


functional, this hard working surface is ideal for food prep — properly sealed, wood countertops are sanitary even for chopping meat. Unlike other budget-friendly options, like laminate, wood is highly heat-resistant so you don’t have to worry about putting hot pots and pans on the surface. Most homeowners choose to mix wood countertops with other surfaces like natural or engineered stone to provide a variety of prep surfaces.

Marble Countertops

The current darling of the design world, the gray-toned veining in Carrara or Calacatta marble isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, it also helps to disguise wear and hide light stains. With timeless appeal, this stoneoriginal_Joel-Snayd-Rethink-Design-kitchen-marble-walls_s4x3.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.966.725 gives any kitchen a decidedly high-end look and, although the cost is comparable to some granites, marble is porous so staining can be a problem. Regular sealing and special care with anything acidic to prevent etching will keep the creamy surface looking its best.
