Selling a home can take time, but you can make your home sell faster if you take time to dress it up before you put it up for sale. One way you can do this is by replacing your kitchen countertops. When a buyer walks into a kitchen, one of the first things they will see is your kitchen countertops. If they are old with surface scratches and other damage, it will turn your potential buyers off. Below are three types of countertops you will see when you start shopping, so you can make the best informed decision.


A granite countertop works great in a busy kitchen, as it is resistant to heat and scratching. Granite is a stone that is found in nature instead of being manufactured. For this reason, you will not find any granite countertops that look exactly the same. You need to purchase enough granite countertop for your entire kitchen at the same time if you want everything to match though. You will find granite in a variety of colors, such as white, brown, blue, black, and green.


Quartz countertops also work well, as quartz is a strong and durable stone. This countertop has no pores (tiny crevices and openings), which makes it stain resistant. You can find quartz to match your kitchen décor, as it comes in a variety colors, such as green, red, cream, brown, and black. Quartz is not a natural stone, and it is manufactured in a factory. It is made by combining quartz with polyester resins. Metal flecks or recycled glass can be added to the mixture to give the counter a more unique look.


Concrete is typically used for roads and driveways as it is a very durable material. Because of this, you will see concrete as an option when you go shopping for countertops. Due to its durability, it is resistant to staining, scratching, cracking, and chipping. Colored pigment can be added to the concrete mix, which means your color choices are endless. Concrete is crafted by hand so your countertop will be unique to your kitchen. Concrete also has texture, so any small hairline scratches that may occur over time are hidden.

If you have more questions about materials you can choose for a new countertop, talk with the different manufacturers who can give you much more information, and may be able to show you some samples to make your choice easier. To find out more, speak with a business like Granite Plus Inc.
