Counter tops for your kitchen, bathroom or other areas can be made from a wide variety of materials. Your intended use of the counter tops will help in deciding which material to use. In areas where high moisture is a factor, a non-porous material should be considered. For outdoor areas, weather is a factor to consider, both precipitation and UV damage from sunlight may make some materials unsuitable for use. All these factors need to be considered when making the choice of material for your counter tops.
