Granite is heavy and quartz can be even heavier. Professional installation is highly recommended for quartz countertops in kitchens for a long list of reasons that go beyond its weight. They are a big investment and installers should be certified to mount the specific brand of quartz you purchase. Many countertops come with a warranty, but often if installed by a certified professional. Even though some home stores sell the material as a DIY, most experts don`t recommend going it alone – except for those who sell it that way. Quartz is a wonderful option for those who want the look of stone with less maintenance hassle. Or, if you want the durability of quartz in a brighty hued version, quartz can do that too. Just make sure you budget appropriately for this beautiful and durable kitchen countertop option.
Transparent glass is the most common and versatile of all. It suits all styles and all kitchen types, some better than others. Simple, transparent glass for kitchen cabinet doors is the classic and safe choice in the sense that it would always look nice regardless of the latest trends. However, there are a few things to consider in this case. Even though transparent glass is the most widely available, it shows smudges and fingerprints so you have to keep the cabinet doors clean and sparkling at all times. Also, since the glass is transparent, it doesn‘t really hide anything so everything inside the cabinets will be on display for everyone to see. If you want a type of glass that at least gives the impression of hiding the contents of your kitchen cabinet, consider frosted glass. This is a type of glass that’s blasted with sand or grit and which has a cool and sleek look, being suitable for modern decors and settings. Keep in mind that frosted doesn't mean opaque so perhaps your guests might not be able to distinguish the little details on the boxes and other things that you keep in your cabinets but they’ll still be able to see their silhouettes and to figure out that your cabinets are a mess when that's actually true. A cool thing about frosted glass, however, is the fact that it can be etched with custom patterns and designs.
A peninsula is pretty similar to an island but since it‘s attached on one side to a wall it doesn’t need a solid base. It can look something like this, with just a solid top and a side panel for support. Peninsulas are more suitable for small kitchens. They can extend the counter space and offer additional storage space if needed. Other possibilities include using the peninsula as a bar or as a prep area. In a way, a peninsula is just a table attached on one side to a wall or an existing piece of furniture. Peninsulas don‘t necessarily include storage underneath their tops although that too can be an option. You can use a peninsula to define the kitchen as a separate space in the case of an open floor plan or to visually separate the cooking space from the rest of the room.
