Premium Stone for Kitchen Countertopsby Kevin Smith Author
Types of Kitchen Countertops
There is an abundance of materials that can be used to customize any kitchen with countertops to fit all budgets and designs. Some individuals may choose to lean towards less expensive but equally functional materials such as laminate, concrete, or butcher block. For a fancier look, individuals may choose marble, granite, or quartz countertops. This article will specifically delve into the higher-end materials (marble, granite, quartz). All three types of stone countertops can be found in Sandy Springs.
Marble countertops are available in different colors ranging from greys to tans. The rich feel is apparent in each design. The material is created by heating limestone. The intense heat forms the crystalline appearance that is unique to marble. The natural stone will keep a cool temperature, which can be helpful when cooking. Marble surfaces will stay true to form and color across time. The unique look of marble is also strong and functional when looking for a countertop material that will last and last.
Granite countertops can be classified as classic or exotic. The classic look sports a speckled design and is available in an array of colors. The colors can be two-toned, such as grays and whites or browns and whites. There are also more vibrant colors, such as “peacock” which includes greens or “Santa Cecilia” which incorporated shades of brown, black, and white. Exotic granite countertops have a more natural stone look with intricate color patterns and designs. Both designs are formed out of strong and natural stone.
Sandy Springs quartz countertops are also available in two different variations: quartz and quartzite. The colors and designs are just as versatile as granite. Some designs can look more like pebbles or speckles, while others offer soft, sweeping lines against a contrasting background. Quartz can even be fashioned into a completely solid color, like black, which can add elegance in a modern kitchen. Quartzite is created by combining intense heat and pressure to sandstone. Both quartz and quartzite are high-quality and durable materials.
