Choosing Countertops for Your Kitchen

Countertops directly complement your cabinets and are the working surface of your kitchen. In addition to the colors and patterns of the material, consider the material’s durability. Some materials are extremely heat and scratch-resistant, while others require more maintenance.

Think about how you use a kitchen. Do you cook every night? Do you have a family or guests that visit often? If you spend a lot of time using your kitchen, the countertops will need to be durable enough to withstand the heat of pots and pans, stains from spills, and scratches from knives or other objects. If you rarely cook formal meals, more affordable countertops that are less durable may be more practical.

Once you decide your countertop functionality, think about the design and how it will complement the surrounding cabinets and fixtures. The countertops you select will reflect your style and pull the whole look together. For example, a stainless steel countertop would work well in modern or contemporary kitchens, while butcher block lends a warmer touch.

With this variety, and the help of your personal design consultant you are sure to find the perfect countertops for your dream kitchen here at Southern Colorado Kitchens™.
