When it comes to the remodeling of your kitchen, nothing is more visually important than your kitchen countertops. Aside from their aesthetic appeal, your countertops need to be fit for the ins and outs of everyday life and a myriad of kitchen activities.Your countertop material should be the perfect marriage between functionality and a thing of beauty while fitting in with your remodeling budget. We offer a variety of different countertops to suit your needs.
What You Should Know About Laminate Countertops
Laminate countertops are made from layers of plastic that are bonded to particleboard or kraft paper to create a solid countertop surface. These countertops are available in a wide variety of colors, textures and patterns, ranging from options that look like marble to ones that mirror the appearance of stainless steel. The end result is a clean and finished surface that won’t put a huge strain on your budget. Brands we carry are Formica, Wilsonart & Arborite.
What You Should Know About Granite Countertops
Granite is a hard and dense natural stone formed deep under the earth’s crust when cooling magma compressed mica, feldspar, quartz and other minerals under heat and pressure into an endless array of colors and patterns. Flecked or pebbled patterns are common, as well as streaks that add movement and interest. Granite countertops are a popular choice in modern kitchens due to their durability as well as variety.
What You Should Know About Quartz Countertops
Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz countertops are arguably the most durable option for kitchens. They’re also some of the most eye-catching. They come in a wide variety of colors, including fire-engine red and apple green, as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams, with sparkles and veining for the look of granite or marble. But unlike natural-stone slabs, which are mined, these slabs are engineered in a factory. Their primary ingredient is ground quartz (about 94 percent), combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant—and nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. Brands we carry are Q-Quartz, Corian Quartz, Wilsonart & Color Quartz.
What You Should Know About Solid Surface Countertops
Solid surface countertops have been around for over 50 years now and are a mainstay in kitchens and bathrooms. What might have once been considered trendy is now so established that few countertop materials have managed to achieve the same status. Solid surface is a perfect mid-range countertop material. Buyers not interested in laminate but still looking for an affordable countertop often gravitate to solid surface. While visual it lacks the depth of real stone or even quartz, it does resemble stone far more than laminate does. Solid surface is where a lot of countertop buyers naturally end up after carefully considering its high and low points compared to other materials. Brands we carry are Corian, Wilsonart, Formica, Staron and Meganite.
