A kitchen is a very functional space in which you cook, wash, clean, eat and much more. Therefore, the kitchen equipment should not only be stylish, but also practical. A kitchen can look dated or tasteless if the countertops are not properly selected. Kitchen countertops can also be trendy or non-trendy, adding chic to your space, making it bolder and more functional for whatever you want to do with it. Here are three kitchen countertop trends that you can consider to make your kitchen look great.
Concrete is one of the best materials for a backsplash or countertop because of its many advantages. First, it immediately has a modern feel and is very trendy. It is not only suitable for industrial or minimalist spaces, but is also used in many other kitchens: in modern, art deco, vintage and so on. Concrete has many different appearances: it can take on all shapes, stains, textures and surfaces, so you can find something to suit every kitchen style. Concrete is not expensive compared to other solutions and you can even make it yourself.
Granite was and is the most popular option for kitchen countertops. Granite has a rich beauty and natural appeal that not many materials can match. With more than 20 granite colors, you can find one that will blend in perfectly with your kitchen cabinets, floors and walls. Granite is a very hard substance and not prone to scratches. Granite is also heat resistant, so it’s ideal to use near a cooker or hob. Granite can be very stain resistant and will not absorb liquids if properly sealed. A good professional plumber can properly seal it to keep it looking good indefinitely, or you can do it yourself.
Butcher block countertops are classics; They give every kitchen a warmth that cannot be matched by any other worktop material. There are many types of wood to choose from. You can use light, colorful or dark stained countertops and try out angular surfaces. Wood counters suit all styles from traditional to contemporary. Wood is an excellent work surface: the edges of your cutlery will last longer than when working on granite or concrete.
