Kitchen countertops are indispensable in a kitchen. They serve as work surfaces to prepare dishes, places to set hot cookware from the stove or oven, and very often, in most modern kitchens, part of them is used for family meals, and snacks. Because kitchen countertops feature so strongly in a kitchen, they also add to the look of the kitchen as much as kitchen cabinets do. If you are planning a new kitchen, or just upgrading your current kitchen, have you given much thought to which type of countertop is best for you? There are so many options available, that it can be bewildering to choose the right one. Let's look at what is available.
Professional kitchens tend to opt for stainless steel countertops as these are hard wearing and easy to maintain, however, they are even more expensive than granite, and they are not exactly aesthetically pleasing, so they are unlikely to enhance the homely feel to your kitchen. For something a bit more unusual and contemporary, glass countertops is one option you may want to consider. You may think that glass is an unusual choice of material for a kitchen countertop and you would be right, however, thick, tempered glass is ideal as a countertop in a modern 21st century kitchen. The most cost effective countertop material is laminate. This is a wooden countertop that is covered in a thin layer of laminate material. Although, these are the cheaper option, and therefore most suited to those people that have to stick to a tight budget, they are not as durable as the other materials listed above.
Modern homes tend to have a lighter look. oftentimes utilizing brighter colors as a base rather than a complimentary piece. Glass countertops tend to have brighter colors which are perfect for complimenting the modern kitchen. The colors will compliment white cabinets and walls very well. Not only will the colors and design go well together, but the beautiful shine of the glass make the kitchen one of the most admired rooms in the house. Granite in this case would make the kitchen conflictive and the beauty would be lost.
