Granite or marble kitchen countertops

by Mohit J. White Hat Link Building Services

Choosing a countertop for your kitchen is a big decision, there are different materials to choose from and they have different qualities to consider. Marble and granite countertops Wall NJ are two of the more popular options because of how attractive they are. People want a kitchen that looks amazing whether that is country, modern, or some offer style. A big part of how the kitchen looks is the countertops, but they serve a practical purpose too, and that needs to be kept in mind as you look. Here is a closer look at both marble and granite as options so you can weigh up the options considering their price, durability and maintenance.

Durability is an important feature

As lovely as you want countertops to look you also need them to be durable. Countertops get a lot of traffic, bumps, spills and scrapes. As lovely as marble is, it is not very forgiving with these kinds of things. Granite countertops bayville, Point Pleasant Beach, are much tougher, have a longer lifespan and are not as prone to scratches and stains. Marble is more porous so things like spilled wine or other liquids that are acidic are not good. If not dealt with swiftly it can cause discolouration and staining. Granite is more stain-resistant but does not have the same range of design and colour as marble.

Comparing pricing

Both granite and marble are more expensive options for your kitchen countertops but sometimes splashing out on something special is worth it! Marble countertops are more expensive than granite countertops Wall NJ. The marble looks better but needs more care and will not last as long as your granite. Budget plays a big role in this decision, not only is the marble more, you will have to replace it sooner than you would have with granite.

Care and maintenance

If you are looking for countertops that are very easy to look after then granite countertops Point Pleasant Beach are the clear winner. It is durable, tough and though it needs annual sealing to keep its protection up against stains and scratches, it is still overall easier to clean and look after. Marble is sensitive to sunlight, to chemicals and needs more attention. It needs a protective covering too and is easier to scratch, damage and stain. If you are the type of person who enjoys looking after your home, likes to clean, pays special attention to the things that need it, and wants to have marble in your kitchen then it will work out fine. If you want something easier then go with granite.

Conclusion

When you choose marble you get a wider range of looks and colours, but you pay more and you have to look after the countertops carefully. If you want something less demanding and more durable then granite is certainly the better option for your kitchen. What you should also think about is what kind of cook you are! Some people are very clean and precise so fewer accidents happen. Some people are messy and things splash around. Granite would suit the messy person better!
