A house isn’t just an enclosed space made up of walls to abode a family, it is the manifestation of the ‘self’ of the individuals of a family. A house represents the financial condition of a family and their belief, religious or otherwise, it’s rooms tell about the personality of the person residing in it and its atmosphere is both relaxing and soothing for a person. People employ different ways to customize and personalize their houses ranging from the simple arrangement of furniture to more elaborate and expensive house painting jobs. In order to do so, they also make certain choices in materials and their applications so as to tailor fit it according to the atmosphere of the house. One such choice to be made is selecting a countertop for the house
The varieties of countertops
A countertop is a flat, horizontal area in the kitchen, with cabinet below it to store utensils and other cooking ingredients. A countertop can be made up of a variety of materials and the most common of them are –
Which countertop to choose for one’s house?
The choice of a countertop material depends upon the interior design of the kitchen, the space available, the cooking habits and the family’s budget
Wooden countertops are optimum for the family which is on a restrained budget and/or are limited by space. The main disadvantage of wooden countertops is that they are sensitive to water and termite infestation.
Likewise, glass countertops not only look good but are easy to clean too. The only disadvantage is that they are extremely prone to cracking and thus are adequate for a family who does not cook extensively.
Natural stone countertops, while easy to clean and highly durable, are costly to make and cannot be moved from their place. A similar concept applies to concrete hardtops with tiles or laminates.
All being said, countertops are of great convenience as well as a way of adding flair to one’s kitchen atmosphere. With several companies out there to tailor-made them as per the customer’s request, all one need to do is to decide and pay for them.
