COUNTERTOPS
Countertops are horizontal surfaces in kitchens, bathrooms, or workrooms. In the kitchen, a countertop is a surface where food is prepared and/or eaten. They are usually waist level and are supported by cabinets. Countertops can be made out of different materials such as Marble, Granite, Quartz, Concrete, etc. The material of choice is usually determined by budget, style, aesthetics, durability, etc.
Countertop in a kitchen can be the difference in a basic looking kitchen and a modern, sleek kitchen. Your choice of countertop is very important because it takes the aesthetics of the kitchen to the next level. Although countertops can cost a pretty penny, they are durable and they are easy to clean and maintain. Granite countertops can cost about $50 - $200 per square foot while Quartz countertop can cost about $70 - $120 per square foot. When you decide to pick countertops, you have to consider the appearance of the countertop because it’s important that the countertop of choice fits well with the rest of the kitchen.
Granite and quartz are 2 of the most popular countertop materials.
Granite Countertop Vs Quartz Countertop
Granite and Quartz are a perfect choice for countertop material. Although they differ from each other, they are both guaranteed to bring the much needed fresh, new, and modern look in your kitchen.
Quartz Countertop
Quartz countertop is also beautiful, durable, and easy to maintain. Just like Granite, Quartz countertops are also a bit pricey, they range from $70 to $120 or more. Unlike other countertop materials that contain a special sealant, Quartz countertops don’t contain any sealant which means all you need to do is wipe stains off with soapy water daily to maintain its fresh look. Quartz is made up of 90 – 95% ground quartz and the rest of it is made up of polymer resins and pigment responsible for giving it color. Quartz countertops are available in a wide array of color, which makes them a great choice for countertops.   
Quartz countertops are perfect for an indoor kitchen. They should be avoided when choosing a countertop for an outdoor kitchen because of daily direct contact with sunlight.                  
How to Clean Quartz Countertops
•Use mild detergent.
•Use soft cloth.
•Use nonabrasive sponge.
•Use glass cleaner.
•Do not use abrasive, acid, or alkaline cleaners.

Granite Countertop
Granite countertops are warm and beautiful, which is why they are the leading choice of countertop materials for homeowners. Granite countertops, although expensive, last longer and are more durable than any of the other countertop materials. Granite countertops start anywhere from $50 and can go up to $200 or more per square foot depending on the thickness and rarity of the stone, the price does not include the cost of installation. Granite is a form of igneous rock that is as old as the earth. Granite is mined in quarries all around the world (India, China, Italy, largest Granite quarry is located in the USA).
Aside from the cost of the Granite material itself, labor costs are usually expensive because installing Granite is labor-intensive and requires a lot of work.
