All She Wants For Mother’s Day Are New Countertops

Mother’s Day is almost here. If you still don’t know how to surprise her on May 12, we may have an idea for you. Brand new kitchen countertops will give your kitchen a new modern look and you know she will love them. All you have to do is decide which ones to get.


Quarts is currently one of the most durable kitchen countertop materials. It is rather expensive, but pretty much indestructible. However, edges can chip and you’ll need to hire a professional to repair them. The material which is a combination of mineral, color and raisin comes in a variety of colors.

Granite is very a tough material which is very heat resistant. It also can chip and  then needs to be repaired professionally. Oil can seep into the countertop if it is not sealed properly. The material is a natural stone, so your countertop may not look exactly like the sample and seams sometimes can be hard to hide.

Soapstone, Limestone, and Marble

Soapstone is very resistant to heat damage. Small scratches can be repaired by sanding. Limestone has a natural-stone look and it’s also resists heat. Soapstone chips and scratches easily. Limestone and marble share those features and heat can damage marble.


Tiles come in a wide variety of colors and styles which means you can completely customize the look.  The material is tough, heat resistant and easy to clean. Ceramic tiles aren’t very expensive, but tiles can crack if something heavy drops on them. A broken tile needs to be taken out and replaced.
