Most Popular Countertops in Savannah, SC

Choosing the best countertops for your kitchen is an important decision, but it doesn't have to be a hard one. One of the best ways to narrow down your search is to find out what kind of countertop material you'd like to use. While it's true that material and style trends change over time, there are several counters that have always been top sellers.

Some of the most popular countertops we sell include:

Marble Countertops in Savannah, SC

There's no way around it - marble adds jaw-dropping beauty to just about any room and is known for its good looks. It is a dense stone that comes in many different hues like greens, browns, pinks, greys, whites, and more. While marble countertops often have otherworldly beauty, they can be susceptible to stains and cracks. Marble is also considered one of the most expensive counters to choose from, though the truth is marble comes in a wide range of qualities and prices.

  • Pros: Stunning beauty, plenty of beautiful choices.
  • Cons: Not always used in kitchens due to chance of staining.
  • Popular Colors: Portinari, Shadow Storm, Super White, Lumen, Calacatta Linconni, Nobulato Honned, Shadow, Grey Imperiale Honed.

Granite Countertops in Savannah, SC

When it comes to popularity, granite countertops take the cake. Granite countertops usually contain a blend of quartz, feldspar, mica, and other minerals. Granite can add an edge of elegance and even a country-chic feel to your kitchen, making it a well-rounded stone. Granite is durable and scratch-resistant, though it can require sealing and DIY chip repair.

  • Pros: Luxurious, rich look featuring natural stone that is durable, heat resistant, and scratch-resistant.
  • Cons: Hard material that may require DIY chip repair and sealing.
  • Popular Colors: Blue Jeans, Creama Pearl, Alure, Galaxy White, Luna Pear, Steel Grey, Ubatuba, Oro Brazil.

Quartz Countertops in Savannah, SC

Quartz is a manufactured material that represents one of our favorite four-letter words: easy! If you're looking to add a high-end feel to your kitchen or bathroom, quartz is an excellent material to consider. Like granite, quartz countertops can add a decadent vibe to any room. Unlike granite, you may not have to seal quartz quite as often (if ever).

  • Pros: Quartz countertops come in plenty of colors to choose from and are easy to clean. They are also strong, scratch-resistant, and don't require sealing.
  • Cons: Quartz is not as heat resistant as other materials like granite counters. Sharp corners tend to crack, but that can be remedied with rounded corners.
  • Popular Colors: Noble Grey, Raw Concrete, Frosty Carrina, Shitake, Pebble, Pietra Grey, Sierra Madre, Arctic.

Silestone Countertops in Savannah, SC

A manufactured material made from quartz crystals, Silestone countertops are equal parts gorgeous and practical. Known for being a durable, non-porous choice, Silestone is resistant to stains, scratches, and even some forms of bacteria. Homeowners who choose Silestone do so because they can get a high-end look without having to worry too much about maintenance. Silestone counters look great in many different homes, from contemporary abodes with modern accents to vintage-looking kitchens.

  • Pros: Silestone countertops are non-porous, meaning germs and bacteria can't lodge themselves inside this material. This makes Silestone counters great for kitchens and bathrooms alike. This material also comes in a wide variety of colors and resists scratches and chips. Overall, Silestone is an excellent choice if you want to make a solid long-term investment without much upkeep.
  • Cons: While Silestone is great if you're looking for a low-maintenance counter option, it can be sensitive to harsh chemicals like bleach and ammonia. Silestone is also not recommended for outdoor use since the resins used to make the material do not do well with UV light.
  • Popular Colors: Daria, Gray Expo, Lagoon, Calacatta Gold, Arctic, Blanco City, Gris Expo, Desert Silver

Quartzite Countertops in Savannah, SC

Not to be confused with quartz countertops, which are manmade, quartzite is a naturally occurring stone that is quarried much in the same way that granite is. If you're a fan of marble counters, quartzite mimics its looks without as much upkeep. Like granite, it is a very durable choice and adds an upscale feeling to almost any room you choose.

  • Pros: Since it doesn't require any special cleaners, quartzite looks great without much maintenance. When it gets dirty, soap and water should be all you need to clean. Quartzite is also a great long-term option since it doesn't wear down quickly at all.
  • Cons: Heat is required to form quartzite. However, you should avoid putting hot pots and pans on your quartzite countertops. Because quartzite comes in many different varieties, some forms of quartzite need to be sealed more often than others.
  • Popular Colors: Maya, Fusion, Locomotion, Callacata, Airy Concrete, Cocada White

How Will You Use Your Countertops in Savannah?

The first and perhaps most crucial part of your countertop choice should stem from how you and your family use your countertops. For example, if you have kids, your counters will probably see a lot of activity. Between standard eating times and "in-between" meals that teens are known for, your counters might double as food prep stations. As such, you might need a countertop material that is resistant to most food and beverage stains. If you own a rental property that sees a lot of foot traffic from strangers, you might want to consider an economical material that is also durable.

  • Do you cook a lot?
  • Do you host a lot of parties?
  • How long will you be living in your home?
  • How long will you be living in your home?
Once you figure out exactly how you'll be using your countertops, you can begin to narrow down your choices.

How Much Upkeep Is Too Much?

Be realistic and honest with yourself about this question. Before you fall in love with how a countertop material looks, be sure you understand how much upkeep is needed. Some materials require more care, while others don't need much at all.

Keep these points in mind:
  • Materials like quartz only need to be wiped down occasionally.
  • Materials like granite, marble, and limestone will need to be sealed at least once a year.
  • Some materials may be durable but aren't stain resistant.

The bottom line is this: Assess the maintenance demands that come along with the materials you're looking at. Marble countertops in Savannah, SC are elegant, but if you'e unwilling to keep them looking their best, why bother buying the material?

You should be aware that most countertop materials will require some form of upkeep, even if it' minimal. To help keep your counters in pristine condition, consider these care and precaution tips:

  • Many common foods contain acids that will dull or even damage the surface of stone countertops.Use coasters to protect your counters, especially if you'e drinking something with citrus juices or alcohol.
  • Do not place scalding hot pots or pans directly on your countertops.
  • Use mats or trivets to place under hot dishes.
  • If you spill liquid on your countertops, blot the spill with a paper towel ASAP. Wiping the spill will cause it to spread.
  • Use mild soap and plain water to clean up stains.

Which Colors and Materials Match Your Home's Aesthetics?

For many homeowners, this question is almost always top-of-mind. After all, you want to choose colors and materials that fit well with other features in your home. When selecting your countertop materials, try to choose a tone that contrasts with your other amenities, like your cabinets. Don't go for a perfect match. As an example, black granite is a beautiful contrast to white cabinets.

Consider these questions when choosing your countertop materials:
  • Are there one or two colors that you love more than others?
  • Does your choice go well with the color of your kitchen's walls?
  • Do you want to switch up your kitchen's style or keep it the same?
  • Will you be painting your kitchen a different color in the future?
  • Will you be replacing your appliances soon?

Preservation of 1,200 acres aims to protect Savannah River

More than 1,200 acres are being added to permanently protected land in the Savannah River Basin of South Carolina, an area that supplies drinking water for more than 500,000 residents in coastal Georgia and South Carolina.

The Nature Conservancy in South Carolina recently announced a protective easement on the Hampton County property, known as the Lowlands and owned by the Elliott family.

“The family gets to keep ownership of their land, while our business and conservation communities and the state invest in protecting its natural resources,” explained Dale Threatt-Taylor, executive director of the Nature Conservancy in South Carolina.

It’s the Elliotts’ fourth land-protection arrangement with the Nature Conservancy, the organization said.

The easement creates a permanent buffer of bottomland hardwoods along more than two miles of Long Branch Creek, a tributary feeding the Savannah River.

“Simply stated, it’s much less expensive to take proactive, natural measures to maintain good water quality than it is to treat unclean water,” said David Bishop, the Nature Conservancy’s coastal and Midlands conservation director.

The easement contributes to nearly 130,000 acres of protected land along the Savannah River through support from the Savannah River Clean Water Fund, a nearly decade-old organization that brings together landowners, five water utilities and companies in Georgia and South Carolina in initiatives to preserve forests.

International Paper, the first private-sector company to join the fund, contributed financially to the latest easement.

The South Carolina Conservation Bank, which has contributed nearly $45 million to 93 land protection projects in the Savannah River Basin, also made a major grant to secure the newest easement.

“Lowlands and the adjoining privately owned, protected properties provide public benefits well beyond their boundaries,” said South Carolina Conservation Bank Director Raleigh West. “The Nature Conservancy’s ability to work at such a significant scale is to the benefit of the residents of Savannah, Hilton Head, Beaufort and the communities in between.”

DNR reopens Savannah River Bluffs Heritage Preserve — with river access only

Savannah River Bluffs Heritage Preserve is open again — if you’ve got a canoe, kayak or other small means of paddling to it.

South Carolina Department of Natural Resources re-opened the preserve’s hiking trail earlier this month but with access limited to that from the Savannah River.

The issue that closed the preserve almost two years ago, in February 2022, remains, said Barry Kessler, DNR wildlife coordinator for region three, which includes Aiken County.

That’s why the old access point off West Martintown and Old Plantation roads is still closed to the public.

North Augusta Area Government

The DNR acquired the Savannah River Bluffs property in the early 1980s, when the area was still largely undeveloped, still quiet. The agency also obtained an easement on an adjacent property.

It wasn’t until during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the preserve's hiking trail became more frequented, that anyone questioned why people were traipsing across private property to get to the trail.

For nearly 40 years, “unbeknownst to anybody on either side,” that easement was being used for public use but wasn’t actually for public use, Kessler explained. The DNR can be on the property for its own management purposes, but that’s it.

Kessler said “multiple attempts and meetings and ideas were thrown out about how to get access for the public from the land, where you can pull up in your car and hop out, but none of that came to anything.”

So, the DNR tested the waters: Was access to the preserve and the shoal on which it sits feasible? Kessler said the agency floated some canoes and found it was.

But there are no docks at the preserve, not with the I-20 bridge so close.

“It’s kind of the best we can do,” he said. “The department wants to keep it open. We would love to be able to grant [land or dock] access and have a spot where you can park your car or boat in, whatever it might be. It’s important to us.”

Department Requests Information on Clean Energy Projects at Savannah River Site

AIKEN, S.C. – ...

AIKEN, S.C.DOE today issued a request for information (RFI) related to the Department’s Cleanup to Clean Energy initiative focused on generating clean energy on DOE owned lands at the Savannah River Site (SRS) in South Carolina.

The RFI will help the Department identify organizations interested in leasing land at SRS from the federal government to develop utility-scale, carbon pollution-free electricity projects (CFE). In late August, the Department issued an RFI to help identify organizations interested in leasing land at the Hanford Site in Washington state for these projects.

Also today, DOE issued an RFI to identify industry partners interested in developing commercial clean energy projects on DOE land in eastern Idaho. DOE is considering leasing land located on the 890-square-mile Idaho National Laboratory (INL) site. The Department is also holding a Cleanup to Clean Energy Information Day at INL on Oct. 25, and inviting leaders in nuclear energy, wind, solar, geothermal, net-zero microgrids, and other clean energy technologies to participate. Attendees will have a chance to learn more about the Cleanup to Clean Energy initiative, the RFI and the INL site.

America’s energy security, economic resilience and climate leadership require the nation to dramatically increase clean energy production over the next several decades. DOE is playing a critical leadership role in achieving this goal, not only through policy implementation but also the strategic use of DOE federal facilities and lands.

Working with a diverse range of stakeholders, including industry, federal entities, tribes, state, and local officials, DOE will explore opportunities to lease federal land for the buildout of large-scale clean energy projects. Cleanup to Clean Energy will help achieve President Joe Biden’s ambitious climate goals and the directive in Executive Order 14057 for agencies to use their properties for the development of new clean electricity generation.

“As the leading federal agency on clean energy research, development, deployment, and demonstration, DOE has both a unique opportunity and a clear responsibility to lead by example and identify creative solutions to achieve the president’s mandate,” EM Senior Advisor William “Ike” White said.

In July, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm announced the Cleanup to Clean Energy initiative at the Department’s first industry day under this initiative. SRS, which is one of several EM sites engaged in environmental cleanup across the United States, is supporting efforts to reach the CFE goals. DOE recognizes the local community is well suited and prepared to support these critical issues.

At SRS, DOE has identified approximately 13,200 acres of land that could potentially be used for industrial activities, including CFE generation and storage. DOE may decide to lease part or all the available land for CFE, or award leases to one or multiple entities for CFE. Potential CFE projects include solar, wind and nuclear projects.

DOE will continue to communicate and partner with industry, tribal nations, communities, stakeholders, regulators and others as a process to potentially develop clean energy projects on DOE land is developed and implemented.

Additional information about the Cleanup to Clean Energy initiative can be found here.

Collaboration Creates Better Science, Healthier Forests at Savannah River Site

AIKEN, S.C. — Research scientists and graduate students from the University of Georgia’s Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) and program managers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service - Savannah River (USFS-SR) recently gathered to explore efforts to expand collaboration between the two organizations that conduct eco...

AIKEN, S.C. — Research scientists and graduate students from the University of Georgia’s Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) and program managers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service - Savannah River (USFS-SR) recently gathered to explore efforts to expand collaboration between the two organizations that conduct ecological research and natural resource management on the 310-square-mile Savannah River Site (SRS).

“Our two organizations have long histories working on the SRS and are both heavily involved in the environmental stewardship of the site,” SREL Director Olin “Gene” Rhodes said. “It gives me great pleasure to be involved in working with the management and staff of the USFS-SR to identify how we can collaborate to achieve even more for the public good and find ways to leverage our resources to work together to solve complex natural resource issues on the SRS.”

The history of both groups on the SRS dates to the early 1950s. At that time, the Atomic Energy Commission, a predecessor agency to DOE, invited SREL to conduct a baseline biological inventory on the plants residing on the newly established Savannah River Plant.

The Forest Service was contracted to reforest the newly acquired land. Over the past 70 years, the missions of both teams have expanded and overlapped at times to include a wide range of ecological research and environmental stewardship. A sampling of these efforts includes watershed restoration, wildlife conservation and management, and environmental remediation.

Each organization has a unique role in continuing the legacy of the SRS being designated as the first National Environmental Research Park. Serving as an outdoor laboratory for research to achieve national environmental goals, the park can be used for ecological research, study of the environmental impacts of energy developments, and informing members of the public of environmental and land-use options open to them.

“Working closer with the staff of SREL to share knowledge and resources mutually benefits each of our missions,” said DeVela Clark, SRS forest manager. “It will allow us both to conduct critical environmental research and at the same time implement science based adaptive forest management practices.”

Kathryn McGee: From Student Volunteer to Savannah River Site Employee

AIKEN, S.C. – In 2019, North Augusta High School student Kathryn McGee volunteered for an EM contractor’s outreach program that introduces female students to careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

She’s now a newly hired Savannah River Site (SRS) engineer and recently volunteered to serve again for the next Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) “Introduce a Girl to Engineering” program event.

In her first time partaking in the program, McGee and her two friends represented the 2019 North Augusta Robotics Club and demonstrated how to build and operate robots. The event was held at the Ruth Patrick Science Center on the University of South Carolina Aiken (USC Aiken) campus.

“I really enjoyed it,” said McGee. “And it was there that I realized that explaining the importance of engineering as a career, particularly for women, was very rewarding. In fact, during my final years at Clemson (University), I gave tours to prospective students around campus that promoted engineering.”

The North Augusta, South Carolina, native confirmed her lifelong desire to be an engineer through an internship and then an apprenticeship at SRS.

During fall 2021, McGee began working with Savannah River Tritium Enterprise (SRTE) Engineering as an apprentice. Shortly thereafter, she accepted an offer with SRTE’s Reservoir Systems Engineering group as a full-time employee.

“It’s been a great experience learning about the missions of SRS throughout my internship and apprenticeship opportunity,” said McGee. “The Savannah River Site is a totally different world than most companies and is unlike anything else in the U.S. I’m grateful I had this opportunity as a student to get my foot in the door. I understand so much more than if I had just hired on. It made that transition from student to employee much easier.”

McGee said she always knew that one day she would join the workforce at SRS.

“I don’t see myself working anywhere else,” she said.

The Introduce a Girl to Engineering program encourages eighth grade girls to consider careers in engineering, science and technology. In celebration of Nuclear Science Week, SRNS Education Outreach is coordinating this year’s event on Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center, USC Aiken.

“Statistically, females are highly underrepresented in STEM fields. This event provides an opportunity for local eighth grade girls to be mentored by female engineers, scientists and information technology professionals from the Savannah River Site through a variety of hands-on activities to showcase all the exciting career paths that we have to offer,” said SRNS Education Outreach Specialist Taylor Rice.
