Countertop replacement is usually the best option when totally changing or remodeling your kitchen.
A beautiful countertop can really stand out in a kitchen. Consumer Reports tested 14 different countertop materials like granite and quartz, recycled glass, bamboo and soapstone. They applied things like tomato sauce and grape juice and let them sit overnight.
The bamboo surfaces stained badly.
They also tested the counters for heat, by placing a 400 degree pot on them: the bamboo counters scorched, and 2 recycled glass countertops cracked within 12 minutes.
When all the tests were done, quartz and granite countertops came out on top!
