Stock kitchen cabinets are a more affordable cabinet option. True to their name, they`re usually in stock and ready to take home from cabinet specialty or home improvement stores; this makes them popular among many home renovators. They are sold either fully assembled or ready to assemble, so that many DIYers are able to personally install them, thus reducing labor costs.
Engineered stone: The most common engineered stone material is quartz, which has succeeded granite as the "it" countertop material. Priced similarly to granite, quartz countertops are made with rock fragments bound with resin and offer overall better consistency and lower maintenance than natural stone. Most importantly, quartz is more stain-resistant and does not have to be sealed, as stone does.
Wood: Butcher block countertops are easy to clean and can be maintained with wood oil, but can also be damaged by water. Wood usually makes more sense for specific work areas rather than the primary countertop material.
