Do you look at the countertops in your home and grimace? So many people live in a home where they despise their countertops. The good news is that Future Vision Remodeling can help you change your countertops into something that you absolutely love! As we help you through the process you will need to decide what kind of material you want for your countertops. Today we will walk you through what some of your options are.
Granite is an extremely popular choice for homes around the country. Granite is a very elegant choice for your kitchen. If you have looked at granite before you probably know that it is not the cheapest option out there. It has gotten more inexpensive over the years but it is still more costly than other options available. The advantages of granite are plentiful though. Granite is available in tons of different color options; it is extremely strong and durable; it does not require excessive maintenance; and it adds value to your home.
Another commonly used stone is marble. Like granite, marble is also on the more expensive end of countertop options. It is stunning though! Each piece of marble has its own unique look. You can guarantee that your countertops will not look like anyone else’s countertops. Marble is waterproof and heatproof. The downside is that it is porous and stains easily unless you seal it properly.
Quartz is an engineered stone that is made up of 93% quartz particles mixed with other minerals that is shaped into a slab and bound with resin. Since it is engineered it can be custom made into any shape and size that you need for your home. It is extremely simple to maintain. It is stain resistant and handles heat and acid great as well.
One trendier option for countertops is concrete. Many modern designers are selecting concrete as their countertop material of choice. Concrete countertops are an innovative way to make a statement in your home.
Laminate has been used in homes across the country for years now. It is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. You can find a laminate that will match the look that you want to achieve in your home. Laminate is a very affordable option.
Solid-Surface Material Countertops
Another option is to use a man-made material made of acrylic particles and resins that are pressed together into the shape needed for your countertops. You may recognize it more by the Avonite or Corian. When this option first came out it was the luxury countertop option. Now it is a mid-range option. It is available in lots of different colors and patterns. It is very stain resistant. Any damage that does occur can easily be sanded out. This option is not very heat proof though so you will want to be careful with hot pans and dishes.
