If you want to design your kitchen from scratch, take measurements and always consider custom optionsThe standard counter depth is 24” and the distance from the counter to the upper cabinets is usually between 15” and 20”In case you have an island or a U-shaped kitchen, make sure to leave some circulation space between of at least 48”.
Also, as durable and resistant as they may be, tiles have their limits and sometimes they can crack or even get damaged by extreme heat. Scrubbing can also damage a high-gloss finish and this can ruin the look of your kitchen countertop.
Tip: After the corner has “set” for a few minutes (5-10 minutes), I found it useful to go along with my fingers and mold the concrete smoother. The concrete will be a bit drier by this time, but it will still be malleable, which is prime condition for pinching it and getting a corner you really like. Of course, you’ll be able to sand later on, so don’t worry about making it perfect.
Glass countertops are showing up in more and more homes recently, due in large part to their modern yet classic aesthetic. Glass countertops provide a distinct sense of style without drawing too much attention to themselves. They don’t stain easily, are easy to clean (non-porous surface), and are heat-resistant. Unfortunately, as we’re all aware, glass can chip and shows fingerprints and messes quite readily. (Not the easiest disadvantages to swallow when you’ve got kids around!)
Now let’s also review some of the cons. A big disadvantage is the fact that tiles don’t create a smooth and even surface. This can be a big minus when you’re trying to roll a pie crush or to balance a cutting board on the counter.
