Remodeling your kitchen involves thinking about all of the details right from the beginning. With so much on your mind, it can seem hard to focus in on small aspects, so let's look at the big details first. Here are a few of the top choices for countertop designs this season that you'll want to be sure to check out before your remodeling project is under weigh.
One of the best countertops to invest in are quartz based. They are perfect for those who don't want to have to worry too much about protecting them from your typical kitchen issues. They're virtually scratch, heat, stain, and acid resistant due to the non-porous nature of the surface. They also don't have to be sealed the same way that natural stone countertops do. Since quartz is such a diverse stone, they are also typically available in a variety of colors or patterns should you so choose, which make your counter tops the flexible accent piece that you never thought they could be.
Polished granite counters are still one of the more popular choices for kitchens today. Granite is perfect because it comes with its own natural design and can add a pop of pattern and color to your kitchen that fits seamlessly with your already blooming design. While matching slabs can be difficult simply because it's a naturally designed stone, it's a great low maintenance countertop as well.
Laminate countertops are a wonderful alternative to wooden ones. Not only are they more affordable than wooden countertops but they also have a ton of new patterns for you to choose from. You can get material that appears to be quartz or granite as well as ones that resemble wood. This is perfect if you're remodeling on a budget because you get the look and convenience of every type of countertop you love, without having to financially commit to something as pricey as the stone tops can get.
Marble countertops are one of the most expensive to invest in but are also some of the most classic and beautiful designs out there. The veining in marble can help to disguise blemishes that the countertop is bound to acquire over the years as well as provide you with a beautifully polished look.
