Deciding on countertops and backsplash may be the hardest decision you’ll make in upgrading your kitchen. Are you going to go with a splash of color in the countertop or the backsplash? Will they complement each other, or will one stand out more than the other? Or, maybe keep both in a neutral color pallet?

Granite is among the favorite in kitchen countertops. The uniqueness of the colors and patterns lends character to any kitchen. And, with proper care granite will last for as long as your own your kitchen. Granite countertops have been the favorite for decades and it’s easy to see why. The hard stone is extremely durable and scratch resistant. The luxurious look has captivated homeowners for years who favor a material that will compliant their cabinets and give an upscale and modern look to their kitchen.

A growing alternative to granite are quartz countertops. Anyone who has been watching decorating and remodeling programs will tell you quartz countertops are becoming more and more popular. As opposed to originating from a cut natural stone like granite, quartz countertops are made from 95% ground natural quartz and the remaining 5% from polymer resins. This mixture allows homeowners and decorators to customize their own design if they choose. The color also tends to be more muted in terms of variations allowing homeowners to showcase unique backsplash tile.
