KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS & TILE – LOS ANGELES
The kitchen is the hearth of the home. When designing an interior decor for the kitchen, the frontispiece and the tiling needs to be decided before embarking on any other decor decisions. Kitchen countertops come in a variety of different materials and styles, and each has their own unique draw. We provide a large selection of materials that can be used in kitchen counter tops, including, but not limited to:
Granite counter tops are the rage in counter top design in the twenty-first century. The hard material provides a sturdy cutting surface while at the same time can fit into any sort of interior decor. The accented look of granite (which is made up of interlocking mineral crystals, which include feldspar and quartz) create a lovely mosaic that can blend in with almost any shade of light or dark. What makes granite such a great material for your countertop is its ability to resist stains and scratches because of its durability. The smooth finish also makes the surface easy to clean and to care for.
Arguably one of the hardest minerals that make up the earth’s crust, quartz serves as a very durable surface to use as a countertop. These slabs are mostly quartz (between 92% and 94%) bound together with resins and colored by pigments. They can also be used in a wide array of decors and because of their method of construction, can be pigmented to go with a design scheme. A unique addition to the quartz family of countertop materials is Caesarstone. This material is a lot easier to install than regular quartz countertops, but can lack sheen and luster of those installations as well.
Marble is one of the most available and cost-effective materials that can be used in countertop construction. Marble countertops demonstrate a lot of unique characteristics and go with a lot of different decor design elements, making it quite useful in many layouts. Marble also has a hint of that old-world beauty that seems to be lost on more modern countertop materials. Overall, marble is a great idea for a countertop, but it also has the disadvantage of staining or scratching unexpectedly.
Countertops are the central space in your kitchen, but they aren’t the only thing that your kitchen needs. Installing tiles in areas to prevent backsplash is as useful as choosing the right type of slab you want for your countertop. Backsplash tiles serve to protect the finish in your kitchen and add to the feel of the interior. You should choose a tile that is patterned to go with your countertop for the best results.
