New Kitchen Countertops

So many people think that kitchen remodeling requires gutting cabinets and building out a completely new layout but that isn’t necessary all the time.  Replacing your kitchen countertops is like putting a new coat of paint on slightly aged car. It can make everything seem like new again, and give you a sense of accomplishment – particularly because you’ll have embraced a great home improvement idea that makes your kitchen far more comfortable.

Kitchen countertops are one of the most heavy-use areas in the home, so it’s important that you pick the right material – and there are a lot of materials to choose from.  When it comes to any kind of remodeling, especially the kitchen of your St Cloud home, you’ll want to choose a material that is not only functional and durable but one that will blend with the other décor and design within your home.

Some of the most common kitchen countertops materials are granite, stone, butcher block, laminate and stainless steel.  For those that are looking to create a sturdy mash up of affordability mixed with aesthetic appeal then it’s worth noting ceramic kitchen countertops as well.

Ceramic countertops have a number of the same qualities as traditional granite and stone but can be installed at a fraction of the cost.  Ceramic can withstand heat, clean easily and are manufactured with a variety of appealing appearances.  Of course, like stone, ceramic is extremely durable and a great option for kitchen remodeling.

The gourmet kitchen is making a stand against other materials as stainless steel makes its way into the home.  What was once considered to be cold and uninspiring is now a staple as companies release stainless steel appliances.  Now you can make the appliances match the surface by installing stainless steel countertops.  For any kitchen remodeling project, a stainless steel work area provides the perfect food prep area thanks to easy clean up and even easier sanitation before and after working.

If you’re the type to spend a lot of time in your kitchen (we all do at some point) then it can be beneficial to have multiple surfaces that provide space for specific tasks.  Having a variety of kitchen countertops can also flesh out the design of your kitchen. Stainless steel prep areas on the counters with a butcher block segment for cutting, along with beautiful ceramic or stone counters in the bar area where family and guests are served.

Through careful planning and discussion with a St Cloud general contractor, you’ll be able to find the kitchen countertops that are perfect for your kitchen remodeling.  Your kitchen should be comfortable, but it shouldn’t cost you a fortune to gut and remodel the whole thing.  Start with a little lipstick and rouge.
