New coun­ter­tops pro­vide a quick kitchen trans­for­ma­tion

The Covington News - - Newton At Home -

If your cur­rent kitchen decor in­spires vi­sions of disco balls and bell bot­tom pants then maybe it’s time for a much needed up­date. But do you need a com­plete kitchen makeover, or just a facelift?

The an­swer de­pends on your bud­get. The bad news is that a to­tal ren­o­va­tion project can be very costly. The good news is that you can re­place your coun­ter­tops and feel as though you have a brand new kitchen.

That’s be­cause your coun­ter­top is the most vis­i­ble source of color in the kitchen. If your cab­i­nets are white or wood, then what im­me­di­ately catches your eye is the sur­face you use the most— your coun­ter­top.

Kitchen coun­ter­tops are the most im­por­tant work sur­face and key el­e­ment in the de­sign and lux­ury of your home. To­day’s lat­est de­signs in coun­ter­tops can take a moderate looking kitchen and turn it to a kitchen out of a decor mag­a­zine or in­te­rior de­sign show.

If you look at what’s avail­able you will be amazed at the se­lec­tion not only of colors but tex­tures and fin­ishes as well. The pri­mary goal is to find a durable, stain­re­sis­tant and easy to clean sur­face that will also bring style, el­e­gance and beauty to your kitchen.

The two most pop­u­lar coun­ter­top ma­te­ri­als which meet this cur­rent de­mand for both prac­ti­cal­ity and el­e­gance are the new solid and quartz sur­faces.

“We of­fer the two hottest prod­ucts in the mar­ket to­day but taste has a lot to do with your choice,” said Mark Hanna, Pres­i­dent of Leeza Dis­tri­bu­tion Inc., one of North Amer­ica’s lead­ing dis­trib­u­tors of Sam­sung’s Staron Solid Sur­faces and HanS­tone Fine Quartz Sur­faces. “If you have an affin­ity for stone which pro­vides vis­ual im­pact and dom­i­nance in a kitchen, than HanS­tone is for you. Whereas if you don’t want all the at­ten­tion to be on your coun­ter­top and true func­tion­al­ity is your goal, than Staron would be the ideal choice.”

Both­sur­face ma­te­ri­als meet the high­est stan­dards for hy­giene and clean­li­ness in the in­dus­try (cer­ti­fied NSF 51) thanks to their non- por­ous prop­er­ties. Also of great im­por­tance, both are ac­cred­ited with Greenguard en­vi­ron­men­tal cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for low emit­ting prod­ucts.

Sam­sung Staron is rec­og­nized as one of the top lines of acrylic solid sur­faces in the mar­ket to­day be­cause of its un­lim­ited flex­i­bil­ity in de­sign. “Un­like stone, which is a hard flat sur­face with de­sign lim­i­ta­tions, solid sur­faces al­low any de­sign style and ap­pli­ca­tion you can imag­ine to blend with your kitchen de­sign.” added Hanna.

With coun­ter­tops it’s still all about color and with Staron’s over 70 color choices you can find the per­fect color to com­ple­ment your kitchen decor.

Mean­while, Quartz coun­ter­tops, such as the in­dus­try’s top rated HanS­tone sur­faces, of­fer a so­phis­ti­cated el­e­gance and time­less beauty in vir­tu­ally any sur­fac­ing ap­pli­ca­tion. As the fastest grow­ing cat­e­gory of pre­mium coun­ter­tops, quartz sur­faces are stronger than gran­ite and be­cause they’re non­porous, they re­quire no seal­ing, are highly re­sis­tant to scratches, stains, and bac­te­ria growth and come in a wide range of dra­matic colors and pat­terns.
