Engineered Stone Quartz, and Porcelain Countertops

So you’re remodeling your kitchen, and it’s time to pick countertops. Selecting the right countertops is one of the most important steps in the renovation process. Here are a few options you may want to consider for your new kitchen. If you’re a Delaware homeowner, KC Kitchen Remodeling can help you design a kitchen that’s stylish, functional, and energy-efficient. 

Engineered Stone Quartz

We love engineered stone because it is super durable and long-lasting. It is also eco-friendly and easy to maintain. Unlike softer countertop materials, engineered stone is able to resist heat and moisture. Its non-porous surface makes it more hygienic because it won’t trap bacteria. Engineered stone looks beautiful, and it is compatible with just about any cut. The only con is that it runs a bit on the expensive side, but if you have the budget for it, engineered stone can definitely be an excellent choice. 

Quartz is a natural mineral that’s commonly used in engineered stone countertops. Engineered quartz countertop slabs are made using a mix of ground quartz and other materials. This material is durable, non-porous, and stain-resistant with a sleek, elegant appearance. Overall, it’s a good choice, but it can be a bit pricey. Some people do not like quartz because designs can be duplicated. If you are looking for a slab that’s completely unique, you may want to opt for granite. 


Many people love the translucent glow of porcelain. Despite its delicate appearance, porcelain is one of the most durable countertop materials on the market. It’s super easy to maintain, and you have lots of pigment choices when picking out porcelain countertops. Porcelain is much thinner than granite or marble, so it can be prone to cracking. The manufacturing process is complex, so you can expect to pay more for porcelain than other countertop materials with similar pros and cons.
