When you’re designing a kitchen, it’s easy to get caught up in style, colors, and creating something unique and personal, but you can’t forget about function as well, especially in the kitchen. The surface that you choose for your countertop should be able to stand up to the tough kitchen work environment.

Make sure your countertops are the perfect blend of strength and style for your Kansas kitchen.

Countertops with strength and style

Remodeling or designing a new kitchen gives a homeowner a unique opportunity to create something that represents their personal sense of style and aesthetic. However, you also need your countertops to be able to handle the normal kitchen activities. Chopping, pounding, cutting, slicing, and spilling things are par for the course in a normal kitchen.

Wood countertops

If you’re going to be working directly on the surface of your countertops, it’s important to choose a countertop material that is durable and dent-resistant. Wood countertops come in a variety of strengths, from softer woods that are better for decorative surfaces to the more solid and sturdy wood types and grains that can act as a solid chopping block for cooking, cutting, slicing, and dicing.

Quartz countertops are the most durable on the market, made from the hardest minerals on earth. They are also beautiful and easy to maintain, and they are giving the classic granite countertops a run for their money in modern kitchens.

Mixing and matching countertop materials

Both quartz and wood countertops come in a variety of colors, patterns, grains, and stains. Mixing and matching materials in the kitchen to create unique, personal patterns, and individual design is something that homeowners and kitchen designers are utilizing to incorporate style and strength, as well as function and fashion, into a modern kitchen.
