We could say that, in the market, there are almost as many types of countertops as of kitchens and bathrooms. And it is precisely this wide offer that, at times, can drive us crazy when deciding which is the one we like best or the one that best fits our needs. If you are right at this point, you should consider the factors such as durability and maintenance, plus appearance, of course.

It is neither very expensive nor very cheap. Of course, if you settle for a wooden countertop, avoid the lacquered wood. The best thing is simply to varnish it and, over time, sand it and make it varnish it to last a few more years.
