A standard counter typically costs substantially less in solid surface material. Quartz, Dekton and granite have about the same price range and are generally more expensive than a solid surface counter.
Solid surface, quartz, granite and Dekton are all mid to high-end countertop materials. Typically, individuals interested in a specific look that is only available with a specific material will not necessarily be happy with a compromise. Each material has its advantages. However, there is no such thing as a perfect counter material. View each product page and choose the material that is right for your lifestyle.
Counters are only limited by your creativity and budget. Features such as coved backsplashes, full-height backsplashes, extra-wide peninsulas, seamed-in and undermount sinks, color lines, inlays, sandblasting, and large edge profiles are all available at additional charge.
Due to the available sizes of sheet material, a “standard” countertop is typically a solid color, is 24? deep, has a 4? set-on backsplash, a simple 1 2? edge, and a top mount sink and/or cooktop cutout.
It is important to understand that even though “standard” counters are substantially less expensive that an “upgraded” counter, the same level of craftsmanship should be apparent on both types of counters.
