It’s early in the morning when you stumble into the kitchen to make your first cup of coffee. In your half asleep daze you slosh some on the counter top. After some moments of staring at it you sadly realize you can’t tell where the coffee ends and the counter begins. With that realization comes another, it is time to replace those dated old counter tops with Affordable Granite Countertops in Tucson.
New counter tops are the single most important update anyone can make in their kitchen. Worn and dated counters make any kitchen look years and perhaps even decades older than it should. Material finishes will fade over time. Work surfaces become worn and scratched through normal daily usage. Hard surfaces are a definite benefit when metal pots and pans are banged around during the mayhem of cooking a family meal.
Many counter tops tend to look aged simply by retaining grease and grime in the cracks and crevices where the material was put together. This isn’t necessarily a craftsmanship issue. It can be just as easily caused by the materials used in creating the counters. By it’s very nature, wood counter tops are full of seams and cracks. Even with the best stains and varnishes wood counters can stain and absorb liquids which will discolor the finish. Ceramic tiles are often considered a better choice but they have their share of disadvantages as well. Perhaps the primary disadvantage is the grout seams between the tiles. Grout can be one of the worst collectors of grease and grime. It can also breed mold and mildew. This is certainly not something you want happening in the same place you prepare food for your family and friends.
