Kitchen and Bathroom CountertopsAvailable at Boss Carpet One in Dixon and Freeport, IL
We know how important the perfect countertop material can be. Your kitchen or bathroom countertops will see a lot of traffic and so from performance to look, making the right choice is key. At Boss Carpet One in Dixon and Freeport, IL, we sell a variety of countertops from stone to engineered to granite and more, but we know it’s not that simple. We’ve broken down some of the most popular countertop materials into a few different categories in hopes that we can begin to narrow down your options together:
Quartz- quartz is a very low-maintenance option for countertops as it is stain-resistant, heat-resistant and acid-resistant. Quartz countertops are non-porous so do not need to be sealed like many other countertops (like natural stone) do.
Granite- granite countertops are one of the most popular choices amongst homeowners because of their beautiful look, hard and durable surface and resistance to heat. However, oils and acids need to be cleaned up quickly because they will damage the seal. Also, granite has natural variations in its look, so matching up slabs for your countertops could be tricky.
Butcher block- wood countertops are the ideal surface for prepping food, They act as a cutting board and you can chop and prep right on the surface when the wood is properly sealed. Wood countertops are heat resistant so hot pans can be placed straight on. Wood countertops are also a budget friendly option compared to natural stone.
Laminate- just like flooring, laminate countertops are making a comeback because of all the new advancements that have made them look like hardwood, stone and tile and have made them more durable than ever. However, laminate is not heat resistant. These countertops are available in a variety of looks and colors for any style. Laminate countertops are definitely the most budget-friendly option.
Recycled Countertops- with a beautifully mixed look and environmentally friendly flare, recycled countertops are perfect for the environmentally conscious. These countertops can be made of a variety of materials including glass, concrete, paper, plastic and composite. Because of all the materials, these countertops are available in so many different looks. You can also opt for strictly concrete or strictly glass countertops for a polished and modern look.
