White countertops are a popular option for homeowners looking for a clean, timeless look that's also striking and modern; white countertops also make the room appear larger than it is, so it's a great option for cozier kitchens. A fresh, eco-minded approach to adding color to the kitchen is through recycled glass. Used as decorative remnant and set in concrete, the colors are reflective and add stone-like texture and interest.
Depending on the quality of quartz and style of edging, Home Advisor places the average cost to install quartz countertops between $1,500 and $5,500. You can do some of the preliminary work to save money, but because engineered quartz is heavier than other stone surfaces, a professional installer needs to make sure the space is structurally sound.
According to Home Adviser, the average cost to purchase granite and have it installed can cost between $2,000 and $4,000. You can save money by purchasing the material from a wholesaler and doing some of the preliminary work yourself but the actual fabrication and installation of the countertops should be left to a professional.
