In fact, According to Radon, all natural products, especially stone, minerals, and sand, contain trace amounts of naturally occurring radioactive minerals that can produce measurable amounts of radiation and sometimes radon gas. The site goes on to say that this includes all concrete products, clay bricks, most non-plastic plates and dishes, coal and the fly ash produced in coal-fired power plants, natural gas (contains radon), phosphate fertilizers used in your garden. By nature, granite has some inherent level of radon, and the question is how high that level might be. Because high levels of radon in the home can truly be a hazard to health, we quote directly: After having performed tens of thousands of samples and never finding a granite counter top that produces hazardous amounts of radon gas, Air Chek, Inc has decided that it is a disservice to our customers to offer this product. We instead encourage you to look for a much more likely problem; radon in your home. After much research and testing, it has been determined that granite building materials have a minimal and acceptable amount of radon.
Maybe you should set the tone using a part of the room that isn't focused on as much. A painted wooden floor – in black – will pop and make a statement unlike any other flooring option. Keep your black cabinets grounded and then your open shelves up top. You`ll create a gorgeous foundation and a way to style it to your liking – in a personalized and eclectic way. But do it in a way that fits your personality or the family`s style. Make it a bit less dull by contrasting a lot of different textures as well. To up the modern notches to your design, go with a minimalistic feel. This will set off the lines and neutral tones in a way that makes everything look a bit cleaner and more sophisticated. There's something really futuristic, fun and forward-thinking about this kitchen. We're loving the black and iron combinations and the industrial accents as well.
If you‘re looking for beautiful, durable countertops, Quartz might be a good choice. In fact, it is becoming the hot choice to add style to a kitchen. These countertops can look like natural stone but offer some benefits that stone cannot. That said, they do not have to resemble stone. Because the material is engineered, it‘s available in all sorts of colors that nature cannot provide. If you‘re shopping for countertops, you’ll want to consider not just the costs, but also the pros and cons of quartz countertops. Both quartz and quartzite are popular countertop materials that come from the same mineral: quartz. While both look the same, quartzite is a natural stone material and needs to be treated like other stone surfaces. What we are discussing here is engineered quartz. It‘s a bit of a misnomer to call engineered quartz countertops stone, because they really are not. The material is not cut from a quarry like natural countertop materials. Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals on earth that is a component of stone. If you’ve shopped for granite countertops, you will have noted mineral patterns in the stone, and one of those minerals is quartz. You might see some products touted as natural quartz. While the mineral is natural, don‘t think that the entire countertop is natural.
