Top 5 Kitchen Counter Materials for An Elegant Kitchen

Top 5 Kitchen Counter Materials for An Elegant Kitchen

If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen and want a kitchen counter material that will impress, we have some helpful insights to share. With so many kitchen counter materials to choose from, it can be hard to decide on the one that best suits your needs. Here we cover five of the most popular kitchen countertop materials to use for an elegant kitchen:

  1. Granite is durable, extremely hard, and easy to clean which makes it perfect for high traffic kitchen spaces. You can find granite countertops made from many different types of stone, so you are sure to find the right color to match your kitchen design. However, because it’s an igneous rock, there will be some variation between slabs. People tend to like the variation as it gives your kitchen a unique look.
  2. Soapstone is a metamorphic rock which means it can be carved into smooth kitchen counters with ease. An important note to mention, the soapstone color may fade over time. If using soapstone as your countertop material, we recommend you choose a darker-colored stone for your kitchen area.
  3. Marble is a common kitchen countertop material that is both tasteful and stylish. Marble kitchen countertops are available in many different colors, so you’ll be able to find the right material to match your overall kitchen design. Just like granite, it is a metamorphic rock, so there will be some variation between pieces to give your kitchen a one-of-a-kind look.
  4. Quartz is one of the most popular kitchen countertop materials on the market. It’s a man-made kitchen countertop material that is composed of 93% natural quartz and can be made in many different colors to add depth and character to your kitchen area. Quartz kitchen countertops are relatively easy to maintain which makes them great for high traffic kitchen areas since they also resist heat, scratches, and stains.
  5. Ceramic tile is a classic kitchen countertop material because it’s easy to clean and maintain, durable, and can be made into endless color variations. However, because tile kitchen counters will need to be grouted, which is porous, they will absorb any liquids that might spill. Keep this in mind as the grout may need to be re-done over the years.

No matter which kitchen countertop option you choose, it is sure to create an elegant space in the heart of your home!

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
