You’ve never had any doubts related to the way in which you should design and decorate your home. You wanted it to look spacious, clean, well-organized and somewhat luxurious. Opulence may not be your cup of tea, but still you would very much like to count on a few additional wow factors to individualize your indoor space and make it reflect your personality and taste. When it comes to starting the much-awaited kitchen remodel project, you can’t help but wonder: what type of countertop should I invest in? Which options would be the best match for my existing custom cabinets? If these questions are currently on your mind, keep reading to spot the most amazing countertop materials that could add a personal feel and an extra touch of practicality to your kitchen.
Marble countertops. Marble recreates a timelessly elegant, sophisticated feeling. Whether you want to go for a honed or a polished finish, this option will most likely exceed your highest expectations in terms of aesthetics. Durability is another aspect that should not be overlooked. Marble is highly resistant to impacts and heat; however this material is porous, so you may want to cook on/around it with maximum care to preserve its outstanding finish for a longer period of time.
Butcher block. Dreaming about a very homey, unpretentious kitchen décor? If the answer is yes, then you should know that butcher block is one of your best alternatives. Economical, modern and versatile, this material is suitable for both contemporary and rustic environments with real character.
- Looking forward to adding a countertop made from a durable, solid and versatile material that is also easy to maintain and stands out as naturally beautiful? Yes, you can actually find something that will meet all these important criteria. Granite can live up to any kitchen remodel challenge. This material will allow you to rediscover the flawless appearance of natural stone and profit from a low-key option that won’t give you any headaches when it comes to eliminating otherwise difficult cooking stains.
Mix and Match Materials. Want to make sure that your countertops will go hand in hand with your custom cabinets to recreate the look and feel of a warm, gorgeous and inviting kitchen? Instead of losing hours of sleep to find the perfect correlation between your cabinets and your countertops, why not choose to play with different textures to create a collage that will automatically become the center piece of your room? Mix and match different materials based on their real utility to create a unique kitchen island. For instance, marble surfaces would be right for baking, while butcher block would be perfect for chopping.
