If you are looking for a new face for your kitchen then you may want to consider adding marble or stone counters as an addition to your kitchen. If you are selling your house any realtor will tell you that a clean and fresh looking kitchen will get higher bids on your house. It's simple; a nice kitchen is always refreshing.
Whether you are building a new house or doing a major kitchen renovation, it is important to know a few useful information which will help you decide on the final design of your countertop.
Counter tops are an important part of any kitchen. You use them everyday to perform a number of tasks. They are also where certain items such as keys are placed upon entering the home. There are many different types, each with a unique set of benefits. Because of this, how they are installed is crucial.
A Backsplash is a vertical panel installed above the frontage of a countertop. It has three essential functions. First, it serves to protect the wall from splatters and blocks spills and drips from seeping behind the cabinet. It helps keep both surfaces clean and dry, which, in turn, prevents mold from growing inside your kitchen.
The countertop's base is another important factor to consider during the design process. A countertop placed over a wooden cabinet typically requires a Laminated edge profile to hide the substrate supporting the slab. On the other hand, when installed on top of a concrete base or a metal or a stainless steel frame, a Skirting is recommended to conceal the structure underneath.
Hence, it is highly necessary for wooden cabinets and frame bases to have a substrate which supports the stone slab underneath. The underlay prevents cracks and fissures from occurring, especially around the cutouts.
If you are at loss on how to design a kitchen then you may want to hire a professional who has more than likely designed hundred of kitchens. Home Depot and other Interior Decorating home stores will generally have more than enough people to help you with your search for a better kitchen.
