4 qualities of the perfect modern kitchen countertop

kitchen countertop edge options

The kitchen is definitely the heart of the home. No longer just for cooking, these spaces form the foundation of family life – from entertaining friends and loved ones, to gathering together for meals and conversation. Perfecting this balance means designing a space that is functional as well as attractive, and that means investing in the best countertops and kitchen countertop edges.

  1. They must be hygienic: Regardless of how you want to use your space, countertops need to be hygienic and easily cleaned in order to prevent the spread of harmful bacteria. The best countertops are seamless, smooth and un-textured to prevent dirt and food particles from becoming trapped in the surface. They shouldn’t require the use of specialists or heavy duty cleaning products either.
  2. They must enhance your design: Whether you’re going for a retro 80s look or a modern, sleek and natural look, your countertops should be a main focus for your design. High-impact and highly visible, the different materials, designs and colors of different countertops can dramatically influence the outcome of your remodel.
  3. They must be durable: Kitchen remodels are a big project, and they’re certainly not inexpensive either. The countertops you choose must be able to withstand many years of regular use without chipping, staining or wearing. Kitchen countertop edging is important here, as it provides a strong protective barrier that supports the countertop.
  4. They must fit into your budget: Carrera marble may be a beautiful countertop option, but it’s simply not one that fits into most of our budgets. While countertops can be expensive, you don’t want to choose an option that will dramatically affect your budget for other key items like appliances and cabinets, as this will affect the look of your kitchen as well as how practical and enjoyable it is to use.
