Let’s Talk Kitchen Counter Tops

June 23, 2018

The kitchen is the heart of your home. It is the soul of your temple. When picking the material and color for your kitchen counter tops you should ask yourself these two questions:

    How often do I use my kitchen?
    Am I more selective towards the functionality versus aesthetic look?

Once you answer those questions then the decision of material, Granite versus Quartz comes easy.

Granites are scratch-proof and will do better with the direct heat from the pots and pans . This is great for someone who uses their kitchen often. Colors of Granite have more movement- rich and deep being more detailed. It does however need to be sealed, meaning the protective coat needs to be added.

Quartz on the other hand is not scratch-proof, but is scratch-resistance. Also unlike Granite, Quartz does not work well with direct heat-meaning if you like to cook often, Quartz may not be the right selection for you. Colors of Quartz are more solid and most part of the slab is consistent which  has a great look for contemporary or a modern look. On a plus side, it comes sealed from the manufacturer.

Your counter tops are a big part of your architectural feature. The material and color that you pick will set the tone for the rest of the home. Rule of Thumb: Your counter tops need to flow with the cabinets, floor, back splash and wall color. Once you cover that step make sure your furniture blends as well. Now, that we have the technical part out of the way, let’s create.
