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.
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!)
One size fits all rarely works, even when talking about furniture or other home-related products. are a good example. The standard height for a kitchen counter is 36” off the floor. While that may be OK for some people, in a lot of cases the counter can either be too low or too high. After all, we’re all different so why should we settle for something that doesn’t fit? Since industry standard heights don’t work for everybody, the natural solution to the problem is a custom countertop height that’s tailor made for the person or persons using it.
