In the market for some new kitchen countertops?

It can be easy to go on aesthetics alone, but durability, cost, and other factors should help you in your decision.

If you have young children who make a lot of mess, white granite might not be the best decision because it will show stains and the grooves can hold bacteria. Meanwhile, if you cook a lot, laminate may not be the best option because it can’t withstand high temperatures. It’s important to consider your lifestyle before making your decision!
