How to Select Countertops

Updated: Jun 9


When choosing your kitchen countertops, you first need to choose your cabinets. What kind of cabinets are you choosing? European or American? For European style cabinets, you may want to choose a solid color or a less busy pattern to match the style. For American cabinets though, it goes well with almost every pattern, depending only each person's preference and perspective.




Once you have decided which type of cabinets to go with, you will next be faced with the daunting task of choosing which material to go with for your countertop. The three popular materials people are using for their kitchen countertop are Granite, Quartz, and Marble. Here is comparison of these three material: 


At KZ Kitchen Cabinet & Stone, we carry granite, quartz, and marble prefabricated countertops. We also carry quartzite and the newest selection of composite granite tops! Composite granite is similar to quartz in the production process, just with different starting materials. This type of stone is nearly indestructible, nonporous, incredibly durable, easy to install, and displays a beautiful design.


Note that granite varies greatly in its appearance since it is a natural stone; it would be extremely difficult to find two stones that are like in color and banding. However, you will have the option to choose between different sizes for your stone. Here at KZ Kitchen, there are four sizes: 8', 9', 9.5' and 10' (width: 26''). Measure your home wall-to-wall to get the total length you need. Knowing the appliances size and location would also simplify the purchasing process.

For the island countertops, there are four sizes: 16'', 28'', 36'', 48'' (length: 8'). You are more than welcome to take a look at the various styles and sizes that we offer in our spacious stone warehouse and showroom:




We carry more than 40 colors of granite, more than 30 colors of quartz, and 6 colors of marble. We are looking to expand our quartzite and composite granite selection to introduce more choices for our customers. For more information, please click here to view our collection of countertops.
