You’ve decided on your first custom build. You’ve made the big decisions about layout and design, and you’re moving into the smaller details. First stop? The kitchen.
The kitchen can be the heart and soul of a home. It’s where delicious meals are made and families congregate. Countertops can elevate a kitchen’s design, becoming a beloved focal point of the room. Today we’re going to take a look at a few high-end countertops to help you decide what’s best for your bespoke kitchen design.
Luxury Countertop Materials
When it comes to choosing the best kitchen countertop material, you’ll want to find your balance between aesthetic and usage. Consider what your priorities are and how they might change. To help you decide, here are our recommendations for you to chew on:
Soapstone – This natural stone option imbues your kitchen design with a deep richness. Soapstone adds an old world luxury to your aesthetic while remaining relatively durable and heat resistant.
Butcher Block – A butcher block countertop is a beautifully warm and long-lasting addition to any rustic kitchen design. Oak and maple are especially gorgeous options to consider.
Quartz – This rock-inspired material offers a naturalistic beauty combined with the highest degree of durability. The premier quartz producer and Minnesota-based company, Cambria, offers stunning quartz designs that are perfect for kitchen countertops. As you’re planning, view their extensive collection here.
Ceramic – Ceramic tile elevates your design in an instant. Innumerable styles, coupled with the ability to use custom pieces, allows for a personalization of your kitchen’s style. A bonus? Ceramic is easy to keep clean.
Marble – Investing in a marble countertop means you’ll have a look unique to your kitchen, since no two slabs of marble are identical. A true sign of class, with the added function of being both waterproof and heatproof.
Stainless Steel – This sleek option is perfect for a modern kitchen design. Of all the luxury countertop materials, steel is the easiest to keep clean. And because of its desirability, stainless steel countertops add real estate value.
Granite – When you’re looking for an elegant countertop design, you can’t go wrong with granite. And with its high cost and desirability, granite countertops remain one of the most luxurious options in the bunch.
