Popular Kitchen Countertop Materials

Published on December 18th, 2018

Your kitchen is one of the focal points of your home, so you want to make sure that it is made from materials that will be able to last through all of the wear and tear. Thankfully, our team at Best Buy Carpet and Granite offers many different countertop materials to best suit the needs of you and your family. Whether you are looking for quartz or granite in Plainfield, you’ll find many beautiful options that we offer!


When you invest in quartz countertops, know that they are essentially free of any further maintenance! Rest assured that quartz is a material that is resistant to stains, scratches, scuffs, and acid. Unlike other countertop options, it does not need to be sealed. Quartz comes in a variety of patterns and colors, so you can choose the option that works best for your home.


Granite in Plainfield is a tried-and-true countertop material that continues to be utilized more than any other countertop material. It is a durable material that allows you to cut on it, and it will hold up against stains and other scratches. However, it is important to follow a regular sealing routine with granite. Once a year is usually ideal.


Marble countertops are stunning and they come in a wide variety of options. Plus, it is a more affordable option for your kitchen countertop. Be aware that marble is soft compared to other materials, so it should be re-sealed often.

No matter your kitchen countertop preferences, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for at Best Buy Carpet and Granite!

"They did our granite counters in our kitchen and bathrooms, and they did a PHENOMENAL job. Lydia was our main contact and she was very responsive and very helpful.
