If your budget still allows it but you do not want to have the hassle of maintaining a solid granite kitchen countertop, the next option would be engineered stone kitchen countertops. These are manmade and are much more resilient than solid granite. Market brands like DuPont and Siltstone carry many variations. The overall appearance and design of your kitchen can be influenced by your kitchen countertop. Therefore it is best that you consider not only what your personal choice of kitchen countertop is but also the kind of countertop that is most appropriate for your kitchen. Your budget is another important thing to consider when choosing a kitchen countertop.
Slate countertops come in various tones of grey, green, purple, and black. Slate is becoming a popular choice for kitchen countertops. It is stylish and durable, making it an excellent choice for counter surfaces. Like soapstone, slate countertops should be rubbed with mineral oil regularly, to bring out the beauty of the material. Small scratches can be removed with a damp sponge. Deeper scratches can be buffed out with steel wool.
The best kitchen countertop ideas are those that you hear about before you buy your home or remodel your kitchen. I live in a hard water area and my black granite is impossible to keep looking nice. It is completely impervious to water so every drop sits on it and leaves behind a calcium residue that is a constant struggle to avoid. I also live in a subtropical climate and ants are our constant companions. My beautiful black granite countertop is the perfect camouflage background for insects.
