At a high level, countertops come in a wide range of price options:
The main materials on the market, all available from McDaniels Kitchen and Bath East Lansing showroom, include:
Granite countertops are a natural stone product. This is a highly coveted material, and the use of it in your design sends a message of prestige and attention to detail.
Marble is a natural material that is popular in bathrooms, on window sills, around fireplaces, and occasionally in kitchen designs. This beautiful material is less durable than other options, but is available in a wide array of colors, finishes, and sizes to complement your cabinetry.
Cultured marble is made of a blend of crushed marble and resins and is used primarily in bathrooms. It is priced lower than solid surface countertops but is more expensive than plastic laminate.
Still widely used in both kitchens and bathroom designs, laminate countertops offer an affordable option in a large range of styles, colors, and patterns. Modern plastic laminate surfaces are also very durable, which we have seen in action in this display in our showroom. It is in a high use area with heavy granite samples regularly landing on it and has not shown a single scratch!
More often found in kitchen designs than bathrooms, wood countertops are ideal for food preparation and baking.
This versatile material is very durable and offers endless style options but be aware that grout lines are porous and must be regularly sealed.
Stainless countertops are durable, easy to clean, and sanitary – perfect for a kitchen design. Be aware this material is expensive and may not suit everyone’s style.
Made from a solid, synthetic material, this nonporous surface comes in a wide range of colors.
Here at McDaniels, we offer Quartz countertop products from Cambria, which is virtually non-absorbent, greatly reducing the potential for bacterial growth. Unlike granite, you never have to seal or polish Cambria and it comes with a 10-year warranty.
