Because every piece of granite is unique, you will want to visit your stone supplier and choose your own slab. Depending on the size of your countertop and how many separate areas you have, you may need more than one slab. It's best not to rely on samples when it comes to making your granite choice. You can do some preliminary sampling to get an idea of what you might like and what will match your color scheme best, but make sure to choose the exact slab yourself. This is especially true if you are looking for a particular shade or patterning. Because no two slabs are alike, you might end up with something that looks completely different from the sample.
Yes, we noted that quartz countertops are hard and durable but they can still be damaged. They stand up very well the regular, everyday usage, but can chip if you hit them very hard. Moreover, once damaged, they can be extremely difficult to repair, reports SF Gate Home Guide. Also, Udemy points out that while your coffee, tea or wine might not stain the countertop, long-term exposure to UV sunlight can cause discoloration. They also cannot be used outdoors. As with other man-made countertops materials like solid surface choices, you can't plop a hot pot directly on quartz countertops and expect it to be undamaged. Master builder Bob Vila cautions that a sudden change in temperature or leaving a hot pan the countertop may even cause it quartz to crack. It can also melt in heat above 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Trivets or pads are necessary to keep quartz countertops in tip-top shape and looking good. Quartz countertops are manufactured in sheets that are generally about 4.5 feet wide by 10 feet long. If your kitchen plan calls for very large expanses of countertop, you will likely need more than one piece and will have seams. Generally, seams are less noticeable on dark-colored quartz but can be very obvious on light-colored or multicolor countertops with obvious marbling patterns.
There are obviously quite a few options to choose from when it comes to glass kitchen cabinet doors. It‘s important to know what you`re looking for and to have a specific purpose in mind so you can pick the best option for you and your kitchen. For example, if you want to put things on display, opt for transparent glass and turn your kitchen cabinets into display cases but if you`d rather have some privacy, then perhaps you should pick frosted or opaque glass. Let`s say you‘re quite invested in this type of look and you'd like to adopt it for your own kitchen. You don`t necessarily have to replace your old cabinets with new ones to get the look. You can just give them a makeover or you can use solid cabinets together with glass front cabinets for a contrasting look that has a big visual impact.
