What types of countertops are best?
The best countertop for you depends on what type of space you need countertops for.
Think About Your Project Space
Countertop solutions for busy families and high traffic areas will be different than the urban pad designed for minimal usage.
If you are considering countertops for a busy kitchen, a countertop surface’s strong resistance to scratching, stains, heat, and impact will be important.
If you are looking for new countertops for a special space where you don’t anticipate as much traffic and daily use, your available options can expand to include softer materials like marble. In some cases, you might desire to mix and match with granite for your kitchen island and marble for your baking area.
The bottom line is the type of material you select should be known to work well in the space you anticipate using it in.
Countertop Surfaces: Resistance to Scratching, Scorching and Staining
Take into consideration your need for a surface’s resistance to scratching, scorching, and staining when selecting a countertop surface.
Measure Your Space
Here at Brunswick Cabinets and Countertops, we recommend measuring your space prior to a countertop selection so that your budget can be a consideration in the selection process.
Countertop costs can vary widely. The square footage of your space will determine how much of a countertop surface is needed. Our Countertop Costing Breakdown provides an estimated breakdown of countertop costing per square foot for the surface types we offer.
You will notice from the chart that costing varies amongst surface type but will also vary depending on the color and texture you select. Our team will be happy to discuss the impact choices have on cost and provide you with options that meet your budgetary needs.
Download our free measurement sheet to measure your space and if you need help our “How to Use A Countertop Measurement Sheet” video will walk you through how to use the sheet.

Why A Local Countertop Store?
By going local, you have the choice to hand-pick your countertop slab. This is something big-box retailers are unable to do for their customers. Go local and eliminate the chance for surprises. You can hand-pick your slab for peace of mind that your investment will be one that you love.
Cost of Countertops
Understanding what is factored into the cost of countertops will help you compare your countertop options. Remember to consider not only the material cost but also the cost for countertop installation.
The material cost of countertops is a major factor in pricing but it’s not everything. The square footage of your space will determine how much of the countertop surface is needed. Countertop fabrication (to cut, edge, and polish raw stone) will be included unless a prefabricated slab is chosen. The thickness preference of your countertop (1.2 cm, 2 cm, 3 cm, etc) will also factor into pricing.
Professional installers are recommended as most countertop solutions require specialized tools. If you choose to DIY your project, do your research and make sure you don’t select a material like granite which is very unforgiving. A quote will include an estimate of the time necessary to prep the space for countertop installation including the removal and disposal of existing surfaces. It will also include time for sanding and shaping necessary to make a perfect fit while polishing and sealing to prepare the countertop for its functional use.
