Countertops 101 Deciding on Your Kitchen Countertop Materials


For many, their kitchen is the most important room in their house. And most real estate experts agree that the best way to improve or raise the property value of a house is to remodel the kitchen. The four major components of a kitchen remodel usually involve replacing the major appliances, installing new floors, replacing or re-facing the kitchen cabinets, and installing a new countertop. Lets focus on that final component replacing your current kitchen countertop material with a new one.

Naturally, it involves more than just running off to the store to pick out a new countertop for your kitchen. You will first need to consider how much you want to spend. You also need to think about how much time and effort youll need to spend to maintain your new countertop. Finally, youll want to seriously consider the style and look you want in your kitchen. Whatever type of countertop you install, it will be the focal point of the entire room.

The very first type of countertop that pops into the mind of every anxious kitchen renovator is granite. However, there are many countertop materials to choose from and granite is only one of them. These days, a kitchen remodeling hopeful can select tile, stone, acrylic, concrete, stainless steel, and laminate, even wood!

GRANITE
Lets start with the most popular: granite. Granite countertops are the most popular but also the most expensive. Why? Besides the beautiful surface, granite is extremely heat and scratch resistant. A granite countertop is very durable and will last a long time. A granite countertop will never go out of style and granite slab installation will greatly increase the value of the house. The drawbacks? Other than the expense, granite is a natural stone and it is porous. A sealer will be required to prevent staining. One alternative is to use granite tiles in place of a massive slab. The cost savings on the tiles is high. It is important to not use the granite surface as a cutting board as it will dull the finish (and ruin a knife or two.)

OTHER NATURAL STONES
Besides granite, there are other various stone surfaces that can be used on kitchen counters. Quartz, marble, limestone, soapstone, and slate surfaces are very popular today. Marble is smooth and cool, perfect for food preparations directly on the surface. Its not as durable as granite and requires more sealing maintenance to protect from staining. Slate is very durable and has such a unique surface that it can really stand out in a kitchen. As slate has been used as a roofing material, it doesnt require as much sealing protection, but some upkeep is still needed. Limestone is very porous and spills must be treated quickly to prevent staining. It has a natural, weathered look that can deepen and darken over time. Natural quartz has a look similar to slate but does not stain or scratch as easily. Engineered quartz has been gaining popularity as well, but the costs are considerably more (engineered materials are a quartz composite product mixed with epoxy, polymers, and small stones or pebbles for a unique look and feel.)

TILE
Glazed ceramic and porcelain tile has been popular in kitchens for decades. It comes in a huge variety of colors, shapes, and designs. The tiles can be a small as a square inch and as large as six square inches. The tiles are durable and also have some of the same heat and scratch resistance qualities as granite. The porcelain tiles are usually more expensive than the ceramic tiles, but the porcelain tiles are more durable and the hardest fired type of tiles. Drawbacks of tile? It can chip easily, more expensive than laminate alternatives, and the grout can be an issue. When putting the tiles together, there are grout lines between each of them and grout can stain very easily. It will require a lot more maintenance to keep it looking good. Because of the grout issues, the ability for the tiles to break and chip easily, and the overall cost, it is best to leave the installation work to a professional.

CONCRETE
Concrete is not only for sidewalks or driveways. A concrete countertop is pigmented and can be polished into a smooth and shiny surface that can resemble any natural stone. The counters can be molded in a factory or cast on site. Concrete is rather porous and needs to be regularly sealed, similar to granite, to resist stains. It can be made into any shape and have any thickness. Concrete is also heat and scratch resistant. The counters can be made in a variety of colors and textures. Drawbacks on concrete? The sealer that is required is not the only protection needed. The sealer needs to be waxed every one to three months to prevent stain and water damage, so maintenance can be extensive. You cannot cut on the concrete surface without leaving marks. Concrete is also very expensive.

STAINLESS STEEL
A restaurant would probably be the first thing one would think of when it comes to a stainless steel kitchen counter. But there is a reason most restaurants use this material. Durability, stain and water resistance, low maintenance, a myriad of size and shape choices are just a few of those reasons. Its also very easy to clean and you can put a hot plate or pan on the surface without worry of damaging it. Drawback many dont like the industrial look of it. It can be rather expensive to have made. Cutting on it can leave marks and it can be easy to dent. Its important to make sure the surface is at least 18 gauge and has eight to ten percent nickel in it.

WOOD
Sometimes called Butcher Block Countertops, a wood counter is usually made from strips of maple or oak that has been glued together. But just about any hardwood can be made into countertops. Bamboo countertops are the latest trend! Wood counter material has a warm, beautiful look that can come in a variety of shades and textures. Its perfect for people who want to cut directly on the surface of their counter. It can be sanded and resealed in the event of any deep cuts, scratches or stains. It can be easy to install and the prices are reasonable. Drawbacks? Wood is not very hard and can easily burn, scratch, or dent. The wood can warp or turn black near sinks from regular water contact. And it requires regular sealing.

LAMINATE
Formica is the most common name for laminate counters. Its made of a thin layer of plastic glued to particleboard or wood. Plastic laminate counters are very inexpensive, lightweight, and available in an endless supply of colors and patterns. It is very stain-resistant and, as a plastic material, it is easy to clean. Because it comes pre-formed, it can be easy for a do-it-yourselfer to install. Drawbacks to Formica? While these counters are somewhat durable, they do not last forever. Laminates are not heat or scratch resistant but they are stain resistant. Abrasive cleaners can dull and scratch the surface. Warping or water spots occur with excessive exposure to moisture. The color or pattern can fade with time.

ACRYLLIC/SOLID SURFACE
Solid surface counters are manufactured tops that are custom-made for any application. Popular companies include Corian, Avonite, and Swanstone. These surfaces are durable, water resistant, easy to clean, non-porous, and are even resistant to mold and bacteria. And nicks or scratches can be sanded away. Drawbacks include problems handling hot pans on the surface, high expense, and the excessive weight requires a good strong cabinet base (similar to natural stone.) Some do not like the plastic or fake look of the material, but the material does have a wide range of colors to choose from.

Replacing the kitchen countertops is only one step in your goal to renovate the kitchen, but it is considered the biggest step by many. You can really make a statement about your kitchen and your home with the right selection of countertop material. Of course, once you take care of those worn out counters that came with the home, it will really make those old cabinets, flooring, and appliances stand out! Its all just part of the process of increasing the value of your property. When youre ready to take the plunge and install those granite countertops, contact ConstructionDeal.com to find a local countertop professional to handle the work.

Garden Lanterns

Garden lanterns are but one option among many when considering how to light the exterior of your home. Starting from the street and continuing around the property and through your garden , give the illumination of these areas the same amount of care and consideration you would for your home’s interior.

Just like interior lighting , outdoor lighting can be divided into categories according to task. Task or functional lights are directed towards specific activities , providing light for walking along paths in the evening , gardening by the moon in the greenhouse , or late-night grilling during the summer months. Outdoor ambient or mood lighting is all about creating a space with a mood that feels right for you , whether that’s warm and cosy , Hollywood lux , or cool and modern. Security lighting helps make your home appear lively and cheery , identify visitors to your property before you open the door to let them in , and give you the ability to see the edges of your property. A combination of all three are important to creating a space that’s equally welcoming , functional , and safe for you and your family.

Hanging lanterns on your porch can gently illuminate the faces of visitors to your home and warn you of any unwanted guests. They can also show off a particularly pretty front door or any other features at the front of the house you may want to show off. They also have an aesthetic function and can help complete a particular look , whether that’s traditional , modern , or contemporary. Garden lanterns can do the same at the back of the house by highlighting specific features , such as a waterfall or shed , or keep visitors from accidentally stepping into your beloved raised bed of ornamentals.

Shop online an outdoor lantern based on your style and functional needs , but also be aware of the durability of the lantern you’re choosing , as well as how waterproof and weatherproof it will be. Outdoor lights come with an IP rating (the Ingress protection number) that lets you know how well-protected your lantern is against weather and water. Garden lanterns should have an IP rating of at least four. Garden lanterns typically have a protective (and/or decorative) covering or dome , and many come encased in glass or plastic , making them extra sturdy and durable; an excellent choice for homes exposed to the harsher side of British weather. At Wayfair UK , we offer garden lanterns with a variety of different glass types , including clear glass lanterns , seeded glass lanterns , frosted glass lanterns , and beveled glass lanterns. The lanterns with clear glass emit a solid beam , perfect if you need to light a larger area and if the light doesn’t hang at eye level. An outdoor lantern with patterned glass provides a softer glow , excellent especially if you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors near your light.

    These are small, but I don’t understand the bad reviews because they’re as described. I love them, I bought some small plants from ikea and painted the frame with chalk paint so it matched my accent wall. Works perfect for me!!!

    Received as shown in the picture. The wood is solid and quality is spot on. The swing is so sturdy. Easy to assemble with one helping hand. Delivered as promised on time. The only concern I had was ,couple of screws and bolts were missing. I need to buy from outside.

    It adds some lovely character to the house. It was lighter (in weight) than I had expected, but you obviously can’t tell that when it’s up, so really doesn’t matter. Overall, I’m very happy with them!

    Easy to assemble and very solid bench. Shaped for comfort and identical to one in John Lewis at over double the price. Bought two which weirdly were delivered same day but a few hours apart.

    It was really easy to assemble and looks great! However, there is nothing to use to tie the cushions to the rattan base, so the cushion do slide when you sit on it. Other than that a great purchase!

    A very sturdy container with great capacity. We have been able to fit 4 folding chairs, 2 umbrella chairs, 2 umbrellas, 6 chair cushions and an assortment of outdoor games. It looks unobtrusive on our patio and the whole structure seems solid and waterproof-it hasn't rained yet, so time will tell. The lid seems solid enough to be able to put potted plants on and use as a buffet table.

    Very cute. Smaller than I expected. Read measurements to make sure they are correct size for your space. I obviously did not read that part. Ended up working well with the space and my daughter was happy.

    Very quick delivery on these planters. I ordered 5 medium and 5 smaller planters and all but one arrived undamaged. Took a photo of the damage and another was sent immediately. Very pleased with the look of these items and price paid. Had to drill drainage holes in the bottom which was fine but they look good and I like the fact that they have inserts which means you don't need to fill two thirds of each planter which saves a lot on compost. Put some rocks/bricks in the bottom part so that it is not top heavy. Very pleased with the service and product

    The kids constantly had their helmets, baseball gloves etc all over the deck at the cabin. I ordered this stylish storage bin so I didn't have to look at it. It looks great on the deck and serves as an extra seat too! It was super easy to put together and just looks like another piece of furniture!
