Ceramic tile has long been a favorite choice for homeowners intent on doing it themselves and having a nice-looking countertop as a result. Ceramic is vastly cheaper even than granite tile. Seams are the problem with ceramic tile counters, though. Many home buyers who are avid cooks tend to look down on ceramic tile counters.
Innovative manufacturers are constantly experimenting with new materials, and one such countertop is commonly called paper, although more accurately these should be considered paper composite countertops since they made of paper heavily impregnated with resins. The time may not yet be right for paper countertops. Because this is a special order item, prices are high and supplies are limited. This is for the adventurous homeowner who wants to try a truly unique, and somewhat unproven, countertop material.
The most important criteria for evaluation countertop materials are: Appearance: What are the aesthetic qualities of the countertop material? Value: How does the countertop rank in terms of the cost of materials plus installation? What are you getting for the money? Stain resistance and clean-up: How well does the material resist food and drink stains? Heat resistance: Will hot pots discolor or burn the countertop surface? Resale value: Does the countertop add real estate value to your home in the eyes of prospective buyers?
Quartz countertops look fantastic. Because they partially use natural materials (as opposed to solid surface, which is all man-made), quartz counters have unparalleled depth and richness. And unlike granite and other natural stone, quartz never has flaws or cracks that can mar the countertop.
