Are you remodeling your home or business and need to know what’s trendy when it comes to countertops? If so, Columbia Kitchens is here to help you add a fresh, new look to your kitchen or bath. Read below to learn about three of the latest trends in countertops, which include: granite, quartz and recycled glass.
Granite countertops are trending because no other surface will give you that inconsistent variation that only a natural surface can. This is because granite comes directly from the Earth’s crust and its pattern can’t be predicted. It’s very bold and will brighten up the dullest kitchen to look vibrant and stunning.
There are a countless number of colors to choose from, which is nice to have considering that there are a number of other shades already in the area which will need to be factored in. Your existing décor will be discussed in your design appointment, and your designer will show you granite samples which will compliment the rest of the area.
When you purchase a granite top, there is not much to worry about. Granite is a rock and is tough and durable. It is scratch-resistant, heat resistant, and once it is sealed, it is considered to be stain-resistant. If you would prefer less maintenance with your tops, ask your designer to include the Perma-seal/Sensa-guard in your order. This would mean that you would not have to seal the tops, as you are normally recommended to do every year.
With a little care and precaution your granite countertops can withstand almost anything, and will be the focal point of any room for many years to come.
Quartz countertops are also a very hot commodity because no maintenance is required. It will be just as durable as granite because they are both stone products. Unlike granite, quartz tops are man-made, non-porous, and allow you to find a color much easier. This is because all quartz colors have a consistent variation to them, without any surprises to worry about. When you come into our showroom, we will guide you into choosing a specific type of quartz by showing you samples of: Silestone, Zodiaq, Cambria, Caesarstone, and Hanstone. No matter what type of quartz material you select, you will feel comfort in knowing that what they see is what you’ll get, because the color schemes are predictable.
With so many types of quartz materials offered, it is easy to find a color that will complement your existing color palette. This solid surface will not only last for many years, but will add flair to any home or business.
Recycled Glass Countertops
Recycled glass countertops are becoming very high in demand, and should be considered if you are looking for a bright, environmentally friendly material. Recycled bottles and jars are crushed and manufactured with bio-resin to make a durable, maintenance free solid surface.
Recycled glass countertops are highly attractive and because bottles are used, the colors have a translucent, bright look to them, and stand out in any room. With a recycled glass countertop, you will never have to worry about your kitchen or bath ever looking dull or lifeless. They are easy to clean and stain resistant, and an admiration piece for any visitor to see.
Each countertop has its own unique style and advantages. If you are looking for a natural and exotic look, you will want to come in and look at granite. If you are looking for a consistent look, without having to worry about maintenance, install a quartz composite material. If you want a top that is fun and bright, a recycled glass countertop will provide you that perfect look.
