Kitchen Countertop Options

In the 1960s, kitchen countertops were invariably made of plastic laminate; the new colourful and durable surface. In the 1970s, savvy homeowners installed Corian®, or other acrylic polymer countertops, which were strong and heat resistant. Kitchens of the 1980s began to feature beautiful natural granite countertops. All of these choices are still available to Ontario consumers, along with many other kitchen countertop options. As the saying goes, "the kitchen is the heart of the home,” and the countertop is the heart of any kitchen. Choosing the right countertop can truly make your kitchen the centre of your living space.

Great Natural Options

Stone is still the number one choice for most homeowners and designers. Natural, sturdy, and durable, stone has a timeless elegance that can't be matched by synthetic materials. Prior to the 1980s, stone countertops were only for the very wealthy. But new technologies for extracting and processing stone helped to make the process less time-consuming, and this has meant more affordable stone for consumers.
Granite is by far the most popular stone countertop due to its ability to resist stains, scratches, and heat. It's also easy to clean and naturally hygienic, which makes it anti-allergenic.
Marble is associated with opulent buildings such as the Palace of Versailles and the Taj Mahal, and with fine art and architecture stretching back to ancient times. Installing a marble countertop gives any kitchen a luxurious ambience. Pastry chefs in particular appreciate the coolness of marble, which helps to turn out perfect dough every time.
The stone that currently has everyone talking is quartz. Combining crushed quartz with resin and pigment, this 90% natural stone is both tougher and more low maintenance and resistant to stains than granite or marble. Engineered quartz countertops are perfect for those who like to combine the beauty of nature with the convenience of modern technology.

Acrylic Advantages

Many homeowners prefer to install acrylic polymer counters. These versatile surfaces are available in every colour of the rainbow and are suitable for every style of décor. As well, Corian® or Staron® countertops are easy to install and provide a smooth, seamless look. While some people enjoy the "one-of-a-kind” variations found in granite or marble, many prefer the sleek look of acrylic polymer. This seamless look is especially helpful in smaller spaces like galley kitchens, where it helps to create the illusion of a larger counter. Seamless counters are also healthier, as there are no cracks where bacteria can collect.
Acrylic polymer countertops are less expensive than stone, and nearly as durable. Any scratches, burns, or stains can be easily repaired using household cleanser or sandpaper.
Installing a new countertop can transform your kitchen. Be sure to investigate all of the options available to you, which include stone, acrylic, and other less common materials such as repurposed wood, recycled paper, and various types of metal surfaces.
