by | Jan 25, 2019 | Contractor

Having a beautiful kitchen is a dream come true for many homeowners in the Scottsdale area. Getting rid of old, dated and well-used kitchen cabinets, counters, cupboards, appliances and flooring and replacing it with brand new options is a great way to add value to your home.

When replacing countertops, there are several options to consider. They are all good materials, but they are very different as to price, durability and maintenance requirements.

Natural Stone

Natural stone, which includes marble and granite as a well as quartz, a mixture of 7% resin and 93% quartz, will add both values and appeal to any kitchen. These are the most costly options in countertops, but they offer countless classic as well as bold and unique patterns, colors and designs to choose from.

These counters are all custom made to fit the cabinets in your kitchen. They can have different edge profiles and even different finishes to create just the look you want. These counters should be installed by professionals. There are some care and maintenance considerations for marble and granite counters, but with sealing the surfaces, this is very minimal.


Tile provides a more Mediterranean, European or rustic type of look to a Scottsdale kitchen renovation. The tile can be white, colored, patterned, multi-patterned or include specific colors and design elements. Tiles can be mixed and matched to create interesting and very unique looks.

The price of tile depends on the type of type and the quality of the tile. It can be a do-it-yourself project or completed by professionals. Tile, like laminate, is easy to maintain, but the grout work can be challenging to clean in a busy kitchen.


Laminate types of countertops are the most budget-friendly options. Laminate comes in a range of colors and design options and can mimic any type of material from natural stone to tile or even wood. Laminate comes in sheets and can be cut to fit, making it a good do-it-yourself project with limited expertise required.
