Boosting the Real Estate Value of your Home. If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, but you do not have the funds to completely renovate your kitchen, then you may be able to boost the overall appearance of your kitchen by just making one or two cosmetic changes. Replacing old and worn out kitchen countertops is one way that you can make a significant difference to the overall appearance of your kitchen. Granite and marble kitchen countertops are not only great to look at, but they are easy to maintain, durable and less prone to damage from the placement of hot items. They will last for significantly longer than other types of countertops, although, they can be prone to being damaged by heavy falling objects, even so, they are a much better choice overall.
Granite, marble and quartz are the premier materials used for kitchen countertops, granite being the most preferred. This stone is made up of minerals compacted together by extreme heat and pressure which makes it almost as tough as diamond. It comes in different colors and shades which adds to its natural beauty. Heat, weathering and deterioration do not usually affect granite. When properly sealed, it can tolerate stains, scratches and dents. However, granite is heavy and needs to be supported adequately. Cleaning it daily with a stone cleaner will be enough to maintain it. But it needs to be resealed at least once a year to protect its surface from liquid seepage and dirt. To maintain its shine you have to regularly wax and polish it.
The stainless steel countertop however, is perfect for commercial setups and situations. This is because it has some sort of industrial look to it because of the stainless steel material. One look at it and you know that it's clean. So for those homeowners who wanted a hygienic feel to their kitchen, this one's perfect for you. For that exquisitely modern, sexy look and feel, the glass countertop is perfect for you. Most people call it the "sophisticated choice" because of its unique appearance. It is very flexible in terms of compatibility with existing interior design and color; and also,it makes the room appear more spacious. This is absolutely perfect for modern houses with modern theme kitchens.
