If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then your countertop is the anchor that keeps the fun flowing. Why not make it something truly special?
Read on to see why your kitchen counter is more than a kitchen counter… and how you can design one that’s perfect for you and your family.
It’s the first stop for delicious food
From Christmas cookies to deliciously simple stir-fry, all your favorite meals start the same way: as ingredients on the kitchen counter. If cooking is your passion, or if you’d like your new space to foster a newfound love of food, why not put some added thought into your countertop?
Space-wise, you naturally want a countertop to be wide and sturdy, with plenty of room for you to prep many parts of the meal all at once. The material you choose depends on the kind of look you’re going for and, of course, your preference for durability. Granite is often a high-ranking choice on both fronts, but other options are growing in popularity, too, such as the stain-resistant laminate.
It makes a statement
For those with an eye for design, your countertop also offers you plenty of room to make a stylish statement. Are you going for rustic chic, or edgy and ultra-modern? Maybe a splash of art deco? No matter your muse, the simple selection of a kitchen countertop can help you say whatever you want to say.
It provides room for family…
Perhaps most importantly, kitchen countertops become de-facto centers of family fun and togetherness! When a counter is big enough to perform double-duty as a bar or breakfast nook, it lets family members get even more involved with the cooking and baking process—making time in the kitchen social and fun, not just another task of the day.
… and festivities with friends
Looking to turn your home into a host’s haven in 2018? The right kitchen countertop can make all the difference! An added countertop can provide double prep space during the day, and serve as an attractive, streamlined surface for drinks and snacks during parties and get togethers.
