Tempting though it is to choose a countertop based on looks alone, a material's durability, maintenance and, of course, cost are also important factors to consider when making a selection for a kitchen remodel.

Find a Good Fit

Homeowners have to assess the way they live before settling on a countertop surface, says Jeff Cannata, past president of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and president of Designer's Showcase Kitchens & Baths Inc. in Carol Stream, Ill. "If they have three kids and they're making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the countertops every day, they might not want to go with that white granite."

Stone Countertops Offer Many Choices

The good news is if homeowners have their hearts set on a certain look, but the material just doesn't match with their lifestyle, odds are there's another material that does.

Granite, the top choice in countertops, is available in a variety of shades such as blacks, whites, greens, corals and beiges, and no two pieces are exactly the same. Granite is available in two finishes. A polished finish results in a shiny look and often darkens the appearance of the stone, while honing is soft and matte. Costs for granite depend on many variables, including color, finish and origin of the stone.

Facts about Travertine: What You Need To Know About Travertine

What is Travertine?

Travertine is a form of natural stone with properties similar to those of natural stone materials from the limestone family, such as slate, granite, marble, limestone, etc. Often found in the form of deposits near or within hot springs or limestone caves, travertine occurs as a result of rapid precipitation of calcium carbonate. It differs from other natural stones from the limestone family by its rock formation, hardness and appearance. It usually features concentric bands or fibrous appearance and comes in white, cream-colored, tan and rusty varieties. Perhaps its most distinctive characteristic is the pitted holes that occur on the stone’s surface. These can be attributed to the carbon dioxide gas which usually escapes from the rock formation, leaving holes in the stone.
