The island is probably the most common accent piece for a kitchen but it‘s usually something that only large kitchens can accommodate. Islands go well with open floor plans so if you have the room then should definitely take advantage of it. However, the island is not the only option. A kitchen peninsula is an interesting and practical alternative for smaller spaces or for certain types of layouts. A kitchen peninsula can sometimes prove to be a better option than an island. It provides circulation on three sides while one side is usually attached to a wall and this can offer some nice advantages. A peninsula can be an extension for your kitchen cabinetry or even for a kitchen island. It can be lower than the counter and it can be used as a comfortable dining table or a breakfast nook.
Choose you cleaning products carefully when caring for quartz countertops. Products that are acidic or alkaline can damage the surface of the material. The chemical in rust removers, heavy duty cleaners, bleach and other compounds can be harmful. Make sure you read the care literature your manufacturer provides. Home Style Choices points out that the small percentage of resin material in your countertop means it’s not totally a mineral surface. While some sellers say that you can cut right on the surface, regularly cutting on the surface can lead to scratches. These countertops are equally as popular – and expensive – as natural stone options. As with any countertop material, the price of quartz varies according to the style, design and colors you choose. The more sink and appliance cut-outs you need, the more slabs you use and the fancier the edge treatments you choose, the more the cost will go up. Quartz is not a bargain choice. A general range is $60 to $100 a square foot installed. Other sources like Home Advisor cite higher prices, such as $150 to $280 per square foot.
We recommend to visit every supply house in your area that sells the type of granite you want and try to negotiate a better price, noting that you can often save about 20 percent. The shine and substance of granite is incomparable. Even though the granite may only be in your kitchen, it gives the entire house a sleek feeling, according to the Green Garage Blog. It just plain looks great. And, although it has been in vogue for a number of years, it's not a really trendy surface that will go out of style. Granite is available in a large variety of colors with a large range of patterns and striations. The different mineral contents and source locations impart great variations in appearance. Stylish edges are an option with granite countertops, from simple bullnose or beveled edges to more creative Ogee or Waterfall versions. Granite is durable, but not unbreakable, and will definitely last for decades. Unless you bang very heavy objects on the countertop or treat it very roughly, it will likely last longer than you will. Under normal kitchen conditions, granite will not chip, dent or crack and will stand up to most knives and cooking tools, as well as all of your cooking projects. Totally Granite says you can cut, chop, slice, and dice on a granite countertop without a cutting board.
