Kitchen countertops for people that love to cook

If you’re an avid cook, you’re going to want a countertop that stands up to your culinary test of time. On the kitchen countertops wish list, the top criteria for a quality worktop would tend to include whether the countertop was scratch resistant – or at least easy to fix when scratched, stain resistant and heatproof.

Countertops are available in many different materials, and our favourites include quartz and granite. Read on to find out why.

Best kitchen countertop materials for heavily used kitchens

Quartz countertops

For an elegant finish, quartz could be the countertop for you. While it mimics the look of stone, it requires a lot less time and effort to maintain it. As a combination of resin, colour and minerals, it is remarkably resistant to all kinds of scratches from knives to abrasive pads, and also comfortably heat and stain resistant.

Durable and stylish, a quartz worktop will make cooking a breeze. It’s easy to clean and easy to maintain, allowing you to keep your kitchen looking showroom perfect, while still having a substantial surface to support your culinary creations.

Granite countertops

Every slab of granite is completely unique, meaning that a kitchen which uses granite for its counter tops will be completely one-of-a-kind. Whether you’re looking for a heat resistant counter top, or one that is perfectly able to take on utensils and knives without a scratch, you’ll find both characteristics in a granite counter top.

One thing to note about this material is that it is porous, so would need to be treated and resealed on occasion to prevent staining.

County Stone is pleased to offer a fantastic selection of granite counter tops to beautifully outfit any kitchen.
