Mixing & Matching Your Kitchen Countertops

 

We all love a kitchen with personality and style… and adding contrast and texture within your space doesn’t have to be limited to your fabric or paint choices!  Here’s what you should know about choosing the right countertops for your kitchen and why mixing is the design choice for you.

Practicality
Creating a stunning look with different countertops is a practical way to get the most out of your kitchen. First and foremost, your kitchen is a functional space and so it’s only natural that you make practical choices to maintain that. Before installation, know your kitchen.. where are surface spills most likely to occur? What areas are going to receive the most traffic? What do you love to cook the most and what foods are on top of your countertops?

⇒Heavy Traffic? It’s these areas you’ll want to opt for a countertop material that does double-duty against spills, stains, and moisture. As seen in the image above, Cambria’s Queen Anne Quartz Countertops are a more durable and heat and stain resistant material. It’s the perfect choice for your kitchen countertops.

⇒Heat Resistant? Granite countertops in your kitchen are not only stunning and add an element of luxury to any room – but also help you achieve the look you want and still maintain a practical and hygienic work space. Since Granite Countertops can last a lifetime, contain no harmful chemicals and will not melt or blister when exposed to heat – they may just be the perfect solution next to your oven or workspace. 

⇒Baking much? Marble’s naturally cool surface is ideal for keeping dough soft and safe from sticking to the surface (with minimal flour required). If you love to bake, consider a Marble Island or a smaller, marble-topped work zone.

Balance
For a consistent and composed look, select a focal point (like your kitchen island), where friends and family gather. This is the place for a more luxurious, showy material to shine. The mix of countertops between the island and the perimeter countertops help blend the entire room together for a shareable and functional space.
