Granite can be expensive and is among the costlier of countertop materials, particularly because of installation. And, its great weight means you'll need very sturdy cabinet boxes to support the countertop, which can be a concern if you are remodeling. In some kitchens, a large amount of granite might require extra floor supports as well. What is mainly an advantage for some might also be a slight disadvantage. While a glass or cup can survive a collision with some countertop surfaces, that’s generally not the case with granite. Drop a glass or plate on granite and you can be sure that it will break. Like most stone, granite must be sealed every so often to avoid stains. How often you have to seal the counter depend on the type of sealer you use and the color of your granite. If you have a dark granite top, you might not need to seal as often because minor discoloration is not visible. RemPros also notes that alkaline- or acid-based cleaners should not be used for cleaning granite.
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.
I always have the best of intentions for keeping it neat and tidy. It‘s often hard to even see what I have in there because food items are hidden. I need to do something about this! My solution was purchase a selection of containers, bins, and baskets. This way I can sort things into categories. I will be able to slide food groupings out of the pantry to see what that I have. If you don‘t want to buy containers like these, you can always make your own bins and boxes to store food. Adding labels or chalkboard paint to write the contents on them can be easily done. The appearance of the organizational tools is not as important as their function, but an eye-appealing arrangement is a plus.
