The Most Durable Countertop Materials for a Beautiful Kitchen

Of all the features in the kitchen, your countertops work the hardest. From the moment you wake up to make a cup (or an entire jug) of coffee to when you prepare a meal come dinner time, it’s your kitchen counters that take most of the beating. Luckily, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for the sake of practicality when it comes to choosing the best countertop material for your kitchen.


You simply can’t go wrong with quartz kitchen countertops. This non-porous material comes in an almost endless array of design options. Whether you’re into fun, eclectic patterns or the unmistakable look of marble, quartz is the countertop material for you. On top of all that, quartz is scratch- and stain-resistant so you can breathe easy even if you spill juice or tomato sauce on your counters. 

The best part? Quartz kitchen countertops and engineered stone countertops are a breeze to clean and are less prone to chipping. Just be careful when you set down your steaming hot pots and pans as those can leave a mark.


If you belong to a household that loves to cook and is prone to setting down hot pans on the countertops, then granite is the material for you. It is heat-resistant so it won’t have any trouble being near a stovetop or a gas range. It’s also visually stunning. One thing to remember about granite is that it is porous and needs to be properly sealed.
