Nothing gives a kitchen a facelift like updating the countertops. If you’ve been in your home for a while, or if you own a home with a kitchen that hasn’t been updated in a while, it might be time to make a transformation. Once you are ready to go ahead with new Denver kitchen countertops, your biggest challenge might be deciding just what kind of countertops might be best for you and your family. Before you get started, you can read this article
by the pros at Consumer Reports weighing in on different countertop materials for busy kitchens. Then, read on to find out what some of your options might be.
Laminate Counters for the Tight Budgets
Laminate counters today look better than they used to, but they are still the go-to countertop material for those who are budget conscious. You can get them in many different colors and patterns, however, and they are also more stain- and heat-resistant than the laminate countertops your parents had.
Solid Surface for Seamless Beauty
This is probably one of the most popular types of countertops today. Homeowners love the seamless look of these hard surfaces, and for the most part, they are durable and resistant to stains. They can become scratched, however, so it’s crucial to only cut on a cutting board.
Granite for Strength
Granite has been the most popular countertop for the past decade or more. Nothing can beat it for its beauty of color and pattern. While it is strong, it does require some maintenance in the form of resealing. If it chips, you’ll need to call in a professional to make repairs.
Quartz for Easier Maintenance
If you are looking for something that is easy to maintain, look no further than quartz. This material that looks very much like stone can be tested to its limits. For instance, if you place a pot directly on the counter you just took off a hot stove, your quartz countertop will maintain its beauty. It’s great for cooks who spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Limestone and Marble for Clean Lines
A lot of people love how limestone and marble look but think they are too difficult to maintain for them to be practical as kitchen countertops. Depending on how hard your family is on countertops, these can still be a beautiful option for many kitchens. You’ll have to take a bit of care with them to keep them from staining, but when they do become worn, it tends to be in a lovely way that many people enjoy have as part of their kitchen.
