Top 5 Ways To Improve Your Countertops
With granite pricing very competitive these days finding what you want and at price that meets your budget is even easier than ever. Granite is the most popular choice when it comes to Kitchen Remodels, why; because of vast array of colors and graining. Finding what you want both in the color and graining texture is not hard at all with the help of Element KBD, we will personally select the perfect slab of granite for your Kitchen Remodel. Granite has thousands of different selections in many different price points, this will allow you to find one in your budget, without compromising quality.
This is a man made product that comes in many different color variations and thicknesses, from ¾” to 1 3/8”. Quartz can help accentuate either a Traditional or Modern style home, the versatility of Quartz in all environments is unmatched. Quartz is a nonporous material that does not allow bacteria to imbed in or grow on top of it, this is very attractive to my clients that have children and don’t have the time to continuously clean the countertops.
There’s a reason why the Italians have been using this stone for thousands of years, the quality and vast color variations are extraordinary. Marble is soft and may stain easy, this is why typically you may see Marble more in Bathroom Remodels rather than Kitchen Remodels. There are hundreds of different selections of Marble, majority of people think you can only buy Marble in white, but this is not true. Marbles come in everything from green to blue, with absolutely every graining pattern. Don’t let the cost associated with Marble detour you from entertaining the idea of Marble in your new Kitchen or bathroom Remodel.
Majority of homeowners never give wood countertops a thought, this is because of the lack of information given to them by their remodelers. Here at Element KBD, we like to use wood countertops as accents or even in workstations around the kitchen. Wood countertops come in many different species of wood and finishes, along with the proper edge detail wood countertops can become the focal point of your Kitchen Remodel. As the wood ages it takes on characteristics like nothing else and if you get tired of the color simply sand and stain or clear coat.
5. Stainless Steel
For a superior commercial appearance in your Kitchen Remodel, Stainless Steel is the obvious choice. It does not rust or oxidize and is really easy to clean up. Keeping your kitchen clean sometimes can be a daunting task, but this material is very easy to keep like new. You can also use this material over your countertops in the backsplash areas. This material is great for Contemporary and Modern finishes, but can work in some Traditional circumstances as well.
