You can even pair black with your farmhouse kitchen. Just look at this glimpse into a kitchen that combines country vibes with texture and a deep, silky black foundation. Black works great when you have a space that‘s full of square footage and natural light. It will make the room look bigger even with the use of the dark tones but also provide a bit of drama too. There's something so quaint and perfect about this tiny peek. From the black cabinetry that really sets the tone to the room to the brass hardware, it`s a thoughtful combination of design styles. To have a black kitchen you don`t have to have the entire kitchen dipped in black, instead it can just set the tone while the white or stripes compliment it – like you see here. It`s such a happy and youthful energy!
Actually, a quartz countertop is not going to be 100 percent quartz. The material is man-made, combining quartz with other materials. It is actually 90% ground with 8-10% resins, polymers, and pigments. The quartz minerals are mixed with the resin and then treated with pressure and heat to form the countertop material, which very hard and granite-like. How finely the quartz is ground will determine the appearance. Coarsely ground quartz produces a flecked appearance and finely ground quartz gives a smoother look. Countertop thickness ranges from ½ inch to 1-¼ inches, depending on style, brand, and size. Because the resin binds all the quartz crystals together, the end product is nonporous, making it exceptionally sanitary. There are no cracks or crevices for bacteria and germs to settle in and it serves as a perfect work surface. You can even purchase quartz countertops that are certified as food safe. It‘s also waterproof so it can be used with an under-mounted sink. Unlike natural stone countertops, quartz counters do not need to be sealed. Nonporous surfaces like quartz also help resist stains. They are easy to clean using mild soap, water, and a soft cloth. When buying natural stone, you have to choose the specific slab you want to use thanks to the variations in color and pattern that Mother Nature provides in a single slab of stone. This is not the case with quartz countertops. Because they are manufactured, you won’t have wide variations in color and pattern and can have a more consistent look.
Sealed granite is not porous so it is impervious to bacteria and germs, making it a very sanitary surface because it won't serve as a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. It also resists stains and liquids. Go ahead and plop down that hot pot. Granite countertops can take the heat and will not scorch. The stone is formed through pressure and heat, so it is naturally able to hand hot items. Granite countertops don’t need a lot of maintenance, especially with regard to cleaning. Periodic sealing is required, particularly for light colored granite. Among all the home improvements you can make, granite countertops are one addition that typically improves home resale value. Any kitchen upgrade will likely boost value, but granite is a definite plus on the bottom line at sale time.
