Kitchen countertops

Granite kitchen worktops are the ultimate statement in kitchen design. The addition of granite, in the form of a kitchen, breakfast bar, window sill or freestanding furniture can be the finishing touch to your kitchen. It provides beauty and elegance that can be appreciated for a lifetime and will undoubtedly add value to your home.

Worktops are the hardest worked areas in kitchens and granite is the most durable, easily maintained choice. One of the major benefits having a natural granite worktop will give you is the assurance that, with its densely packed crystalline structure and very low porosity, there is no place for bacteria to hide and they are waterproof, stain-resistant and almost impossible to scratch, maintaining their diamond-polished looks for years

Countertops Research

Replacing the countertops in your home is a great investment. You'll want to make sure you are choosing the right countertops for your house and your budget.

When remodeling your kitchen, countertops should be on the top of your list. After all, aside from your refrigerator, your kitchen counters are used most frequently. With so many materials, colors, and styles to choose from, selecting the right counter top can be very overwhelming.

Selecting the right material is vital to the appearance and functionality of your kitchen. You want a counter top to enhance the visual statement of your kitchen while still being durable enough to survive its everyday usage.

Choosing the Right Kitchen Countertops

Searching for the perfect surface doesn't have to be difficult. Here are some pointers about the most popular countertop materials.

Granite is the countertop material of choice when there are no other things to think about - like money. It defines elegance in a kitchen. As the use of granite becomes more widespread, the price comes down. The beauty of the stone contributes to the beauty of even the most modest kitchen.
Pros: holds up to heat; comes in a range of almost 3000 colors; looks permanent and substantial; will last a lifetime; new sealers are almost maintenance-free; 2nd highest hardness rating after diamonds; has a high value to home buyers.
Cons: expensive, but becoming more affordable; requires some maintenance; some stones absorbs stains if not sealed; knives can become dull if you cut on it; can crack if stressed or improperly installed.

Engineered stone is composed of 93% quartz particles. It is available in a larger range of colors than granite and has a nonporous surface that resists scratches. It's easy to maintain, without the annual sealing required by natural stone. Some brands on the market include Caesar Stone, Hanstone, Chroma, and Silestone.
Pros: Resistant to stain and acid; easy care.
Cons: Expensive.

Ceramic tile is durable and easy to clean. Add to that inexpensive and you've got a really good choice for countertops for the average home. Because it's installed a section at a time, it can be done by most resourceful homeowners.
Pros: takes hot pans; easy to clean; wide range of price, color, texture and design.
Cons: counter surface is uneven; tiles can easily chip or crack; grout lines become stained; custom-designed tiles are very expensive.

Because solid surface counters are just what they're called, solid, any scratches can be sanded out. The countertops are custom-made to your specifications by companies such as Avonite, Corian, and Swanstone.
Pros: comes in a rainbow of colors and patterns; seamless; stain resistant.
Cons vulnerable to hot pans and stains which can damage the surface; can be moderately expensive.

Laminate counters bear trademarks such as Formica, Nevamar, and Wilsonart. They're made of plastic-coated synthetics with a smooth surface that's easy to clean. The pieces are cut to size and finished on the ends.
Pros: you can buy laminates in lots of colors; easy to maintain; durable; inexpensive.
Cons: scratches and chips are almost impossible to repair; seans show; end finishing and front edge choices can be pricey.

Wood countertops offer a beautiful warm look and are available in a wide range of colors and finishes. Hardwoods such as maple and oak are most often used as countertop woods.
Pros: easy to clean; smooth; can be sanded and resealed as needed.
Cons: can be damaged by water and stains over time; scratches must be oiled or sealed according to manufacturer's instructions.

For a really contemporary and industrial look for your kitchen, stainless steel is a good choice. They are heat resistant and durable. Because they're constructed to your specifications, you can have a seamless countertop.
Pros: takes hot pans; easy to clean.
Cons: Expensive; noisy; may dent; fabrication is expensive; you can't cut on it.

Soapstone is generally dark gray in color and has a smooth feel. It is often seen in historic homes but is also used in modern homes as both a countertop and sink material.
Pros: rich, deep color; smooth feel; somewhat stain resistant.
Cons: requires regular maintenance with applications of mineral oil; may crack and darken over time.

Because of it's extremely high price tag, marble is not often seen on the countertops of whole kitchens. To get the luxurious look, use it on an island or inset at a baking center. Marble requires constant maintenance, as it easily stains. Some new sealers retard staining.
Pros: waterproof; heatproof; beautiful.
Cons: expensive; porous; stains easily unless professionally sealed; can scratch; may need resealing periodically as per manufacturer.

If you have countertops in unusual shapes, concrete may be a good choice, as they're often cast right in your kitchen. The high price tag may be beyond most people's budget.
Pros: heat and scratch resistant; can be color-tinted; looks exotic and unusual; new treatments eliminate cracking; additives reduce porosity; new finishes are more decorative.
Cons: mid to high range on cost due to custom work; cracking is possible; can look somewhat industrial; porous but can be sealed.

The Right Bathroom Material

Countertop materials and colors really set the tone for your overall bathroom design. Many colors, styles, pattern and materials are available to choose from - each with its own special qualities. In addition to making a statement bathroom countertops can still be practical, providing additional workspace. Choosing a particular material can set the tone of the room

By customizing your bathroom countertop, you will be able to address all of your bathroom needs and add your own personal sense of style. You will need to choose for your bathroom design project a countertop that can accent your major fixtures like your shower, toilet, vanity, etc.

Choosing the Right Bathroom Countertops

Bathroom countertops can make a statement and still be practical, providing additional workspace. Choosing a particular material can set the tone of the room.

Aside from appearance, one should also consider price, maintenance and compatibility when investing in a bathroom countertop. Following are four of the most popular surfaces worth investigating.

Long lasting, stain-resistant and beautiful, granite is the Rolls-Royce of countertops. Once the surface of choice for high-end bathrooms, granite is gaining in popularity for a broad spectrum of home styles. It is the most durable and easiest to care for of any of the natural stone materials. While relatively expensive, it provides an elegant look that is incomparable.

Tip: You'll save even more if we can use leftovers from another project. Granite tiles are also more affordable than slabs.

Granite Maintenance: Granite countertops need to be sealed every six months to a year. Clean countertops with warm water and a liquid detergent. Avoid abrasive cleaners; they'll scratch and dull the finish. Small chips and scratches can be polished down.

Marble is know for its beauty, but it is soft and porous and can stain easily. Nevertheless marble still remains a top choice for bathroom countertops, walls and floors. Marble is available in slab or tile forms and in a variety of thicknesses.

Manufactured quartz imitates the look of limestone, granite or marble, but is even more resistant to scratches and stains. Made up of 90 percent quartz particles, this synthetic composite comes in a wide variety of colors and thicknesses. In fact, four companies — Silestone, Okite, CaesarStone and DuPont's Zodiaq — make more than 130 manufactured quartz countertops.

Tip: Quartz is the material to use if you're considering a countertop with a specialized edging.

Quartz Maintenance: Practical for the bathroom, quartz is durable, easy to clean and doesn't require sealing.

Tile has always been a popular material for bathroom countertops, but homeowners often complain about the need to clean the grout. These days, however, tiles are coming out in much larger sizes, which eliminate the need for numerous grout lines. Through-body (unglazed) porcelain tiles are stronger than granite and about a third of the price. Plus, the myriad types of ceramic and porcelain tiles, including ones that have a metallic look, allow for fabulous designs. Tiles also work well with other materials such as glass or concrete. Tip: Use a colored grout that doesn't show dirt as easily and which plays off the color of the tile. For a striking contrast, try a terra-cotta tile with a dark gray grout.

Tile Maintenance: Grout lines need regular maintenance and cleaning. The tiles can be easily cleaned with any household detergent.

Designed to look like natural stone, solid surface is one of the most popular countertop options available. Known by its brand names such as Corian, Staron, Gilbraltar and Avonite, this easy-to-maintain synthetic product can be molded to fit any design specification. Tip: Use a solid-surface material if you're concerned about mold or mildew. The nonporous, hypoallergenic surface discourages the growth of these allergens.

Solid-Surface Maintenance: Being nonporous, it's easy to clean.
