Kitchen countertops must be prepared from high quality materials. Due to regular and intense use, the counter top might get scratches or appear dull. Instead of installing a completely new counter top, you can choose to give a new look to your countertops. Some of the most trending counter top materials are quartz countertops, polished granite counter tops, laminate countertops, serene wooden countertops, marble countertops etc. These materials are fire resistant and scratch proof along with durable and catchy.
Since our pantries were an uncommon size, we had no choice but to invest in custom doors. We found a great local store in our area that was able to accommodate our needs and for a very reasonable price. We paid about $575 per door. And, we were more than happy to support a small business in our town. We chose tiles that were on a mesh backing, making it easier to install the sheets than single tile, one at a time. Playing up the white and grey colors in the countertops, we chose a Grecian white interlocking tile, again keeping everything neutral but not sterile looking
Modular kitchens in India are also inspired by Vastu shastra, the epic and ultimate manuscript for home architecture. You can arrange your modular kitchen as per the rules described in vastu shastra and bring in a lot of positivity and creative energy in your kitchen. There are predefined locations for placing the sinks, water storage, food storage, fire/gas stove, cabinets etc in the vastu shastra to promote effective organization and use of the kitchen.
The former ceramic tiles are such a boring option for flooring and ceilings. For an elegant and sober look in your kitchen, you will have to replace the traditional floors and ceilings with the trending options. You can choose Asian wooden flooring or ceiling, porcelain tiles, limestone flooring or ceiling, bamboo flooring, laminate flooring/ceiling etc. not only these materials add elegance in your kitchen but also these materials are highly stain resistant, durable and resistant to climatic changes.
As with all renovation work, when you demo something, you uncover other problems. As we removed our old vinyl flooring, most of the subfloor came up with it. Once the vinyl was up, we had to head back to Home Depot for new subfloor. In total, we spent about $700 on flooring materials.
Rather than using square subway tile, Katie applied Heath tile in classic white. It's similar to subway tile but has an interesting hexagonal shape, puzzled together with dark gray grouting (a practical color to conceal any future dirt or stains). Custom wood shelves were made locally to break up the upper cabinets and to emphasize the beauty of the tiles. The porcelain slab countertops are a gorgeous addition to this modern kitchen. Did I mention they're basically unbreakable?
Having just aced our first pass at laying tile, we wanted to move onto the backsplash but needed a new countertop in place first. We spent roughly around $2,000 on new counters. I needed a material that didn’t require much, if any, maintenance and in a color that lightened the room.
