Kitchen Tip for SW Florida Homeowners:
Choose a surface that matches your lifestyle. If you decide to replace surfaces, remember that some materials make upkeep easier, important if you have kids at home or do a lot of cooking. Granite and quartz are top performers in our countertop Ratings, but granite needs periodic resealing. Don’t rule out laminate, which is much better than stone at resisting impact. If you’re heart set on marble, just know that it’s going to stain and scratch over time unless you’re obsessive about protecting it.
