3 Countertop Options You Probably Didn't Think Of

by Delores Chavez

Whether you are remodeling your bathroom or updating your kitchen, installing new custom countertops can be a good investment. Not only will they add more appeal to your space, but new countertops can also improve the function and value of a room. Even though granite is one of the most popular choices today because of its appeal and value, it is not the only option available. This guide will provide a few countertop ideas that you may not have thought of.


Many people have heard of quartz, but they may not realize what this material actually is.

If you order a granite countertop, the entire countertop will be cut and shaped out of a piece of granite. With quartz, the countertops are actually manufactured out of a combination of synthetic materials, which include small pieces of quartz and resins to bond the ingredients together.

Although not a solid stone like granite or marble even, quartz countertops are still very durable. The hard surface is resistant to damage that may occur when prepping or serving food. In addition, quartz does not require sealing, making it a virtually maintenance-free option.


When most people think of countertops, they think about a hard stone or synthetic material. Fortunately, more and more people are thinking outside the box and installing wood countertops in their homes.

Wood can be stained and sealed in a variety of colors and finishes, ensuring you can complement the rest of your kitchen or bathroom with ease. Contractors will choose a solid, durable wood that is sealed to protect the countertop surface from damage and moisture issues.

Wood countertops can be used throughout a kitchen, for example, but if preferred, wood can be installed on one area of the countertop. Consider installing wood countertops on a kitchen island and granite throughout the remaining part of the kitchen to soften up the rustic look.


Another unique option to consider when choosing new countertops is glass. Glass countertops are available in a variety of colors and designs, so you can find a look suited to your kitchen or bathroom's current decorative style.

Because it is non-porous, glass countertops will not stain, making cleanup and maintenance simple. Glass is also heat-resistant, so you do not have to worry about damage from hot pots and pans.

Choosing the right material for your kitchen or bathroom countertops does not have to be challenging. This guide will help you choose an option just as good but entirely different than granite.
