There was a time when perfectly picked countertops were just sturdy surfaces to ground your kitchen activities. Contemporary times have elevated the quotidian countertop, emboldening it with added functionality and luxurious style.  A perfectly chosen countertop elevates the visual style of your kitchen and when well-designed can provide intelligent functionality.  

Choosing a countertop requires thought and can be a challenging task. Here are four critical considerations to keep in mind when deciding the best countertop for your kitchen: 

Visual Appearance

Countertops are unmissable focal points in every kitchen. Whether you prefer a classical look or have a turning for the modern, your choice of countertop needs to reflect your personal style. Contemporary countertops offer versatility of both form and structure. Natural stones like granite and marble bring home the rustic grandeur of nature. Engineered quartz, porcelain, and stainless steel create more modernist workspaces.  


At Häcker, we understand that no two kitchens are alike. From differences in culinary cultures to the number of individuals a kitchen must accommodate, every kitchen meets a unique set of requirements. Countertops need to accommodate the daily culinary pursuits of the kitchen. Ceramic countertops may be less suited to sustaining high-frequency heavy-impacts. Some materials are more prone to chipping and scratching than others. The intensity and nature of impact your workspace will sustain is an important consideration to account for while picking a countertop.  


At Häcker, kitchens are built to last. Our 20-year warranty comes from our confidence in the quality craftsmanship we bring to each kitchen. At par with intelligent design in every Häcker kitchen is effortless maintenance. Your choice of countertop influences how frequent and intensive maintenance efforts will be. All our countertops are heat, stain, and wear resistant. However, natural materials like granite, wood and marble require yearly maintenance for sealing. Depending on your use, quartz, ceramic and stainless steel could also require polishing for upkeep. When committing to a countertop it’s important to also assess what kind of maintenance you’re committing to.   

Price Performance

No purchase decision is ever complete without a consideration of price. High-quality kitchen countertops are an investment, and when done right, save you from a lifetime of recurring repair, maintenance, and replacement costs. Natural stone countertops, while rarer and more unique than engineered mineral or wood countertops, can also be more expensive. All Häcker-integrated countertops promise rock-solid reliability and timeless style, delivering a uniquely pleasant price performance.
