09 Mar Countertop Culture: How To Determine What Material Is Best For You
Remember when countertops were either laminate or granite? Well those days are long gone. Today’s countertops might include engineered seamless stone, concrete, metal, wood and just about anything else you can dream up.
Nearly every material will require a certain amount of maintenance to keep it looking great, which means you have to consider not only your needs for the space, but the materials as well.
Granite- When sealed annually it is stain-proof, heat-proof and water resistant.
Concrete- Concrete has become a popular material, especially in modern designs. This material is extremely heavy, which means the base cabinetry must be exceptionally strong.
Marble- Carrara Marble has made a huge comeback in the past few years. While it is beautiful and luxurious material- both to look at and to feel – it is also much more apt to scratch that other types of solid stone.
Butcher Block – We recommend this material for a hardworking space where a pristine surface may not be as important to you.
