The kitchen is the one room in the home that you want to look the nicest. That means constantly upgrading its appearance to add attractiveness when you have company. Despite the appearance of the cabinets and surrounding materials, countertops are a central look to the design of the kitchen. When you’re looking to implement a new material for your kitchen countertop, how do you know which one’s best?
You can get a well-known stone material, or you can get a material that catches your eye. You want the countertop to blend seamlessly with your kitchen walls and other décor, so choose wisely. Some of the most popular materials are granite, quartz, marble, and soapstone, which we have right here at Stone Masters, Inc. in our kitchen and bath showroom in West Chester, PA. Other top materials are steel, concrete, laminate, glass, and composite. All prices fluctuate, so choose one that is within your budget.
Granite: Granite countertops in Philadelphia are made of the strongest material, where you’ll need heavy cabinets to support its weight. They are easy to maintain as owners will quickly find they can withstand wear and tear, as well as knives and heat on the surface. Plus, they are reasonably priced for the beautiful architecture. Granite is one of the most popular materials when it comes to redesigning the kitchen countertops, so if you want to go your own way, there are plenty other materials to choose from.
Quartz: With quartz, you can let your imagination run wild with the amount of colors available. You won’t have to sacrifice the feeling of a natural stone product, as it looks all natural, but is truly engineered to provide a nice composite of stone and solid surfacing. You won’t have to maintain it too much, and its price may sway you in its direction, though it is an engineered material. Pros: color range and price range.
