Let's Talk Countertops

Kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, family room and on and on and on. There’s very few spaces in our homes that are without a work surface of some kind. And work we do…….inside and outside. Chopping, hot pots, raw meats, nail polish & remover, colors and markers. Just to name a few of the things that our countertops come in contact with.

So how do you decide which material and finish will work for your home and the activities of your daily life. Fortunately, there are so many good materials, manmade and natural, that can withstand (for the most part) the daily use and abuse of busy lives. Review some of the top materials listed below.
