The Perfect Kitchen Countertop

Who would have ever thought that a kitchen counter top would ever be something one could talk about, let alone choose?  I mean gone are the days when all a woman cared for was that she had a counter top to work from, irrespective of how it looked like, or what it was made of.  Today choosing a kitchen counter top is a topic on its own, not to mention the endless possibilities to choose from.   
When choosing a kitchen counter top however, it’s different strokes for different folks.   Personal choice largely depends on the amount of cooking a person is going to do in that kitchen, maintenance for that kitchen and their own personal style.  Here are a few ideas to choose from
STONE:  It’s no secret that marble and granite are the most popular stones when it comes to designing a kitchen counter top.  Most experts recommend that you choose granite as it’s the best of the 2 stones.  This is because it will not wear out, and even after 5 years of having a granite kitchen counter top, it will still look as new as the day you had it installed.    Marble on the other hand stains more easily and it scratches just as easily too.   
METAL:  Metal counter tops are those made out of stainless steel, and they are very durable, in fact metal is so good that most professional kitchens or professional chefs use stainless steel counter tops to prepare their recipes.  This is because stainless steel will not absorb any acid and it never stains.   
CONCRETE:  Concrete is a strong option for the kitchen and the beauty of concrete is that it can be molded into any shape desired by the kitchen.   We all know that concrete is famous for cracking, but you don’t have to worry about that as a concrete kitchen counter top is made so thick and so hard that cracking is the thing of the past.  It’s important to mention that concrete allows for passing of liquids, and therefore requires regular maintenance to remain looking new.
