One of the more popular rooms in the home is the kitchen. It’s a place where family and friends gather for good food, fun conversation, and a warm atmosphere. Whether you’re sitting down for a family meal or throwing a holiday party, the kitchen often becomes the focal point of your home. Make sure your kitchen represents your unique style with custom kitchen countertops. Edmonton’s Bossio Stone can help you bring out the best in your kitchen with countertops made of quartz, granite, natural stone, and marble. Each countertop material we supply and install offers many benefits for your kitchen.
What Kind of Material Is Best Used for Kitchen Countertops?
Each kitchen countertop material has its pros and cons. Comparing the options available to you can help you find what works best for your kitchen. Learn more about the countertop materials we offer below:
Pros: Since the quartz we provide is engineered, it comes in a variety of colours and patterns. This makes quartz a versatile material that can be customized to match your existing kitchen décor. Quartz is stain and scratch resistant.
Cons: Quartz is a bit more expensive than some other countertop materials. Additionally, it does not have the same natural variation to its surface the way granite might and therefore may give off the feel that it is an engineered product.
Pros: Granite provides a natural look to your kitchen. This material comes in various colours and patterns only found in nature and therefore making your countertops one of a kind. It is resistant to knife nicks, heat, splashes, and general wear and tear.
Cons: Granite requires sealing every 3 to 4 years to help avoid stains.
Pros: It’s elegant and provides a soft and unique look.
Cons: Marble can be easily stained even after it’s sealed. It can also be scratched and etched easily. Marble is better for light use areas, like vanities.
How Long Does It Take for a Kitchen Countertop to be Installed?
The length of time it takes to install kitchen countertops in your Edmonton home can vary depending on the material availability, anywhere between 3 to 4 weeks. Ask Bossio Stone how long your countertop material will take to install when you request a quote.
How to Maintain Your Kitchen Countertops
Once again, maintenance depends on the material used to create your countertops. Some materials like marble, granite, and other natural stones need to be sealed to avoid staining. Always use pads for hot pots and pans to prevent damage to your countertops.
