A luxe, natural material with plenty of veining, soapstone makes a gorgeous kitchen countertop. Soapstone countertops look very sleek and chic and complete the look of a kitchen in a variety of styles. They are also heat-resistant, durable, and unaffected by acids such as orange juice or vinegar (which, let’s be honest, will be spilled at some point in the kitchen’s life). Soapstone does require regular oiling and buffing and can be scratched.
Warm and natural and absolutely earthy, butcher block countertops in the kitchen are a popular choice for serious chefs, historic/period homes, and really anyone who loves wood’s natural warmth and beauty in the kitchen.
One of the best is factory-engineered quartz. It is similar in look, is sturdy and durable, and is stylishly versatile in a variety of kitchens. Quartz is a hard, long-lasting substance and its glossy surface is easy to clean with mild soaps. Bonus: quartz is low maintenance, neither requiring sealing nor resealing.
Kitchens are a critical part of a home, both in living in a home and selling/buying. What is more, the design of the kitchen countertops plays a huge role in the appeal of a kitchen – what material was used, how easy to maintain, how they look, how they hold up, and many more considerations are all aspects when thinking about kitchen countertops.
