My 3 Top Countertop Choices

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It's where the conversations take place, the relationships get formed and where the cooking and baking happens. Your kitchen gets a lot of traffic and needs to withstand your busy lifestyle.

Designing, planning and creating a beautiful and functional kitchen  takes thought and lots of planning. It's definetely one of the big investments you'll make in your home. You want to make sure you make the right choices for you and your families lifestyle.  Choosing the right countertop is a big consideration. With so many different countertop options to choose from, the choice can  be overwhelming. Countertops are made of many different materials from natural to synthetic with a variety of colors and textures to choose from. 

When choosing a countertop, consider which will  best suit your design preference as well as functionality on a daily basis. Other considerations include color as well as the thickness of it's edging. Once you've decided on the countertop, consider using it as a backsplash.

These are 3 of our popular picks for kitchen countertops.


Granite countertops are uniquely natural. It's carved from natural stone allowing every piece to be different and one of a kind. You won't find two granite pieces that resemble each other. This natural stone is very durable and can withstand heat and sharp blades. It doesn't scratch or stain easily. It's easy to clean and maintain.  When looking for the perfect granite stone for your countertops, take a sample of your kitchen cabinet, tile and drawer pull to tie all the elements together to create your perfect kithen. When you see a slab of granite you like put it on hold, get the lot number and share this information with the fabricator.

Note that the lighter colored granites are more sensitive so make sure to speak to your stone cutter to get accurate information about the granite you are considering.

I personally love granite and the Tag Mahal is my favorite. 


The Caesar countertop is very popular among the different materials and is made of quartz that has gone through processing. It comes in many different designs, styles and colors some of which resembles natural stone, choose one that matches your kitchen's design and personal taste.

This material can't withstand very high temperatures therefore you should be extra careful while placing very hot items on it.

Caearstone is easy to maintan. Lighter models may stain easier, so choose a model that fits your lifestyle ad maintenance preferences.  I've found it to be very easy to clean including stains which I thought were here to stay. Using "Astonish with a magic sponge will help in remove\ing most stains.


Dekton is a synthetic material. It's a strong countertop and keeps its color for many years even if exposed to sun. It's heat and scratch resistant, easy to clean and doesn't stain. It's available in a wide range of colors and patterns as well as in both matt and polished finishes. It's also available in a variety of thicknesses. Consider all the options available and coose a color, pattern and finish that complements your kitchen's style, decor and personal preferences.

We recenty installed a Dekton top on a large dining room table. We are thrilled with how it turned out and our client's are loving how easy it is to maintain.
