When choosing a countertop material for your next home update, it’s important to consider a variety of factors. Price versus durability is certainly an important factor, but you should also examine what room this countertop will reside in and whether or not the material in question will live up to the needs of that room. Here are some recommendations from our countertop specialists!

For kitchens, we highly recommend granite or quartz countertops.
