What Are Your Options for Kitchen Countertops in Denver?


April 4, 2018

If it’s time to replace those scratched, stained, or outdated kitchen countertops, you have a real opportunity to completely transform your kitchen. There are tons of options available when it comes to Denver kitchen countertops. You are limited only by your imagination—and perhaps your budget. (Check out this Consumer Reports article on the pros and cons of countertop materials for busy kitchens to help make your decision.)

Here are some of the options available.

Laminate

Laminate are for those who are truly budget-conscious. Today’s laminate looks a lot better than it did in the past; it’s also stronger and more resistant to stains and heat.

Solid Surface

This type of countertop creates a seamless look with nearly invisible joints. It’s also good for sinks and backsplashes. It is stain-resistant but it can scratch; be sure to use a cutting board on this type of countertop.

Quartz

Quartz looks a lot like stone, but it is easier to maintain. Set a hot pot on your quartz countertop—and it will look just as beautiful as it did the day you it was installed. The same is true for abrasives, knives, and stains. It’s not a bad idea to choose rounded edges for these types of countertops since they are somewhat prone to chipping.

Take a look at some of our prefabricated slabs; these are perfect for small kitchens that don’t need a full-size slab. These are available in quartz, marble, granite, and travertine.

Granite

Granite is still quite popular, primarily for its beauty and uniqueness. It’s strong against heat and scratches, but it will need periodic resealing. Its edges can also chip and will need professional repairs.

Limestone and Marble

Many people love the clean lines of a white marble countertop, but there is a perception about them that they are difficult to maintain. This classic material is fairly heat-resistant although some stains can be tough to get out. A bit of maintenance is required to keep them looking beautiful, although they tend to wear in a particularly lovely way.

Butcher Block

If you are looking for something that adds a warm look and is easy to install and repair, butcher block might be the countertop for you. Keep in mind that the finish of these types of countertops is important, and varnish can improve its resistance to stains. If nicks and scratches happen—which they can pretty easily—they can just as easily be sanded out.
