The day starts with those birds outside your window that sing too loud and the duvet on your bed that is too warm on summer. You go to the kitchen to fix some coffee – inhaling the smell is helping you to open your eyes. You grab the coffee pot to pour its content into two mugs, but the handle is surprisingly slippery and, suddenly, it seems it has been raining coffee on your granite countertop. At that precise moment, your loved one enters the kitchen. Perfect timing to enjoy yet another morning together…
With a wide range of countertop materials like granite, solid surface, quartz, and ceramic, choosing the right material for your home can seem daunting. Each material has its own abilities that allow for durable and reliable countertops, which provide your home with a long-lasting and beautiful design.
Having the right colour for your countertops is one of the more important style choices you make when remodelling or designing your kitchen, as you’ll be looking at them for many years to come. The right countertop colour will enhance the beauty of the space, and of the appliances you choose.
Whether you want to complement the colour of your countertop with the appliances you’ve picked or with the wall paint colour, considering the lighting in your home and the colour of the rest of the building materials will help you choose.
If you’ve been looking into re-inventing your kitchen, one of the aspects that you’ve probably researched is the kitchen counter. You may think that these pieces of furniture come in a variety of different sizes as well as shapes, but many tradesmen will tell you that there’s one standard height for kitchen counters.
Is this true? Are you really that restricted to the size of your counter?
