If most homeowners could single out the busiest area of the house, the kitchen would certainly qualify. With all the amount of cooking, eating, and entertaining happening in it, it’s important that the kitchen countertops are up to the task. If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen soon, here are some ideas on choosing the kitchen countertop that best suits your needs.
Concrete is a natural, environmentally-friendly material that can be customized to fit the look of most kitchens. If you’re looking for something besides a modern look, concrete countertops can be formed to look like wood to complement a homey-style kitchen layout.
A gem of a countertop
Engineered quartz countertops are the no-nonsense option for anyone looking for durability and versatility. These are made from ground natural material quartz mixed with polymer resins. The end result is a non-porous surface that is stain, scratch, and heat-resistant that can stand up to the heaviest kitchen traffic and can be molded in any shape or color to fit discriminating designer needs.
Pure and gentle
For that clean, contemporary look in your kitchen, crystal white engineered non-porous slabs should do the trick. This pure white material is similar in appearance to white natural stone but without the high maintenance.
Living in the stone age
Natural stones enhance the beauty of any room and could give your kitchen a sophisticated appearance. Slate, granite, and marble are all durable and attractive, but require slightly more maintenance than other countertop materials.
