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.
From your knobs to the drawer pulls, switching these pieces of hardware out to something that fits with the style will help with your transformation of the space. Remember, it‘s the little details that matter. From the fridge to the stove, instead of going with more modern appliances try finding some with the vintage appeal. This will certainly help change the personality of your space as well. Tupperware has definite retro vibes and you’ll not only love using it but it’s a great way to decorate your kitchen as well. It‘s just another element that will pay homage to the throwback era. Who is a fan of Coca-Cola? Well, if you are, adding a bit of their accents to your retro kitchen will surely be a winner. As it too adds to the vintage appeal and funky personality of the time.
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.
