COMMERCIALCountertops for Restaurant and Bars

In the vibrant world of restaurants and bars, commercial countertops are indispensable assets that define both style and efficiency. These essential surfaces not only enhance the aesthetic charm of your establishment but also provide robust functionality across diverse spaces. Whether adorning sleek service counters, facilitating seamless food preparation in bustling kitchens, or adding a touch of sophistication to restroom vanities and bar tops, each countertop choice is crafted to meet the specific demands of your business. With a variety of materials available, from durable options for high-traffic areas to elegant finishes that complement your venue's theme, our countertops ensure both durability and aesthetic appeal, making them an integral part of your hospitality environment.



Common Countertop Materials

When selecting materials for your commercial space, you'll find a variety of options available, each offering distinct styles, strengths, and price points. Below are some of the most commonly used materials in restaurant and commercial bar designs


Quartz countertops are made from quartz, resin, and pigment, creating a solid and stylish surface. They come in different styles: some with a speckled look, others more uniform. These countertops offer a wide range of colors and patterns since they're engineered. They're durable, easy to clean, and don't need sealing. Their glossy finish resists stains and cracks well. However, they might not suit those wanting a more natural appearance, and they can be expensive. Because they're heavy, they need strong support and aren't as heat-resistant as other materials.

  • Wide variety of colors and patterns available.
  • Durable and easy to maintain, requiring no sealing.


Granite countertops, formed from natural stone over millions of years, boast unique mineral patterns and colors. Available in polished or textured finishes, granite is celebrated for its timeless elegance and durability, appealing to both homeowners and businesses. It's strong, recyclable, and eco-friendly, offering lasting performance with resistance to heat, stains, and scratches. Each slab is one-of-a-kind, ensuring distinct countertops. However, granite's weight necessitates strong installation support, and it requires periodic sealing to preserve stain resistance. Once installed, its style and color are permanent, requiring careful selection for your design needs.

  • Unique mineral patterns and colors due to natural formation.
  • Strong, recyclable, and eco-friendly, with excellent heat and scratch resistance.


Quartzite countertops, made from natural quartz sandstone, offer a hard, durable surface with a unique, marble-like look. Each slab is distinct, featuring elegant veining in shades of white, gray, and other colors. These countertops are highly durable and more heat-resistant than quartz, though they do require sealing. While beautiful and strong, quartzite can be expensive and needs professional installation and periodic maintenance.

  • Natural and unique appearance with marble-like veining.
  • Highly durable and heat-resistant but requires sealing.


Marble countertops, formed from limestone under high pressure and heat, offer a distinctive, elegant look with their recognizable veining. They provide a stylish, timeless design, available in various colors and engineered designs, and are naturally cool and heat-resistant, making them ideal for kitchens. However, marble is porous and stains easily, especially from alcohol and acids, and can be more costly. As a soft stone, it may chip or scratch and requires frequent sealing and maintenance.

  • Stylish, elegant appearance with a variety of colors and designs.
  • Heat-resistant but porous, prone to staining, and requires frequent maintenance.


Soapstone countertops are quarried stone surfaces known for their smooth, matte appearance, ranging from light gray to near-black. Some slabs may feature hints of blue, green, or a subtle pearlescence, developing a dark patina over time. While its natural aging process adds charm, soapstone's understated elegance blends seamlessly with various designs. It remains cool enough for pastry work like marble but requires regular oil polishing to maintain its condition. However, soapstone is prone to chips and cracks and does not resist scratches well, which can affect delicate glass and china.

  • Smooth, matte appearance with a range of subtle colors.
  • Requires regular oil polishing to maintain condition.


Health Care And Hospital Countertops

In hospitals and healthcare environments, cleanliness and sanitation are paramount. Patients and visitors expect stringent health standards. Opting for appropriate medical countertops ensures sterile conditions while presenting an appealing and inviting appearance.

Restaurant And Bar Countertops

As a restaurant or bar owner, you know the importance of making a great first impression on your guests. Appearance matters from the moment customers walk in. Countertops, whether for taking orders or seating around the bar, are among the most used surfaces in your establishment.

Office And Corporate Countertops

Countertops in workplace settings provide a chance to imbue style and sophistication that communicates your brand and culture. They should reflect the image a company aims to project and appeal to employees, clients, and visitors, enhancing overall ambiance and functionality.

Hotel And Hospitality Countertops

In the hospitality industry, presentation is key. When guests check into a hotel, the countertop is often their first point of contact. Choosing the right hospitality and hotel countertops is crucial for branding and setting the desired ambiance and experience for your guests.

College and University Countertops

Educational settings prioritize low-maintenance environments and durability to withstand high-traffic areas. The ideal countertops for schools fulfill these requirements with easy disinfection capabilities while maintaining a high-quality appearance.

Assisted Living Facility Countertops

Ensuring your residents feel comfortable and safe in your facility is crucial. Their well-being is a top priority, and there are numerous ways to make them feel at home. One subtle yet significant approach is ensuring you have the appropriate countertops.

Retail Countertops

In retail environments, establishing a distinct brand image hinges on style and creativity. Visual appeal is paramount, especially since retail countertops occupy considerable space. It's crucial that these surfaces leave a positive impression on customers as they browse or engage with your staff.

Commercial Bathroom Countertops

Designing your restaurant, retail store, or commercial space to impress and comfort guests is crucial. Every area, including the bathroom, should create a positive impression. Choosing the right bathroom countertops enhances satisfaction.
