Do you like maintenance tasks?
Your lifestyle has a direct influence on the type of material you should go for. If you are always on the go and don't love housework, go for a low maintenance material that you can you can easily take care of. In that case, the best choice would be engineered quartz.
Do you love cleaning, polishing, and don’t mind showing your countertops some love? Your options expand to include porous types of natural stone.
Before you install porous countertops, you should note you need to seal them periodically every 3-6 months.
Do you love cooking?
If you have a family and you love to prepare your meals at home, you need a durable, tough material that is easy to clean. One of the materials to go for would be, again, engineered quartz.
Regardless of the material you settle for, remember you have to protect it from heat and hot cooking appliances.
