The Best (and Worst!) Commercial Countertops

As a business owner or property manager, you know that commercial buildings have different needs from residential properties. That’s true for everything from the flooring to the plumbing to the roof. But do consider, putting modern comforts into your office space is not hard to do. That’s why Best Granite For Less offers various types of commercial office countertops.

Today, we will run through the best countertops for commercial offices and business spaces. From the needs of small businesses to larger enterprises, Best Granite For Less is your source for quality countertop installation here in the South Florida.

The top of choice for commercial office countertops

Increasingly, employees in a commercial office setting have come to expect amenities that they’re used to seeing in their own homes. This includes full kitchens where employees can prepare and eat food, as well as places where they can take breaks. This may also include a coffee bar café style setting. Also consider reception areas that customers will encounter. First impressions are lasting impressions!

If you’re a property manager, here are the two types of commercial office countertops that can help your property attract the right type of business tenants:

Granite countertops

Many people think of granite as the “king of countertops.” It’s versatile and modern enough to be used in a variety of settings, and it looks just as great in an office setting as it does in the home. It’s striking and conveys cleanliness and upscale amenities.

Granite countertops are easy to care for and clean, and they are very durable and can take abuse from knives, kitchen appliances, and hot objects. If you’re constructing a commercial space with countertops, this is an important feature, since you don’t want to be replacing your countertops every time a tenant moves out.

Granite is not as expensive as you might think especially for a larger project we can offer a bulk discount. Best Granite For Less buys our Granite in bulk, straight from the quarry. By cutting out the middleman and processing large orders, we can save you serious money on new granite countertops for your commercial project.

Quartz countertops

You’ve probably seen Quartz countertops before without explicitly realizing that they’re Quartz. This can be a great option for a countertop in a trendy, modern office space or restaurant bar. Many offices use quartz: it’s durable, relatively inexpensive, and clean-looking. It matches the desired decor of the 21st-century office space. Used in an interior installation it can provide a durable surface that lasts for years but is not recommended if used in an area that hot objects will be placed on the counters.

If you’re a property manager deciding between granite and quartz, think about the desired aesthetics of the prospective tenants you want to attract. Granite matches the feel of law firms and doctor’s offices. Quartz just feels right in the office of tech startups and small businesses. Ask your current tenants what they think!

Two countertop types’ commercial offices should probably avoid

Not all countertops are the right fit for commercial spaces and offices. Here are two that you should probably steer clear of when you’re shopping for new commercial office countertops:

Marble

Marble is classical and elegant. It’s beautiful and truly unlike any other type of countertop. However, it’s not as durable as Granite or Quartz when it comes to discoloration or stains.

In a residential setting, this might not matter as much: many homeowners place marble in bathrooms where it won’t see too much use. Obviously, your office kitchen gets a lot more foot traffic.

In addition, marble can get pricey at the volume needed in commercial settings. If you want the look of marble, talk to the team here at Best Granite For Less. We may be able to find you a granite countertop that resembles marble so that you can have the best of both worlds.

Plastic

Plastic is incredibly appealing because it’s often the most cost-effective means of adding countertops to a commercial office. However, it’s just not durable enough for this type of use.

Knife nicks, burns, stains, discoloration, cracking—in a residential setting, plastic can go the way of the dinosaurs fast. But, in a commercial setting where office kitchens see a ton of traffic and use, that plastic countertop is going to need to be replaced really quickly. It might be the cheap solution now but in the long run it will cost you more…
