The kitchen is the focal point of every custom, luxury home. Its layout sets the stage for the entire house. Its countertops are among the most critical details that speak to the quality of your home. It is one area you don’t want to skimp on.
There are many different types of countertops available for custom homes. Each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Here at Posada Custom Homes, we’ll briefly discuss the most popular countertops among luxury home buyers.
Granite is arguably the most popular type of countertop for most modern-day homes. It is highly durable, resists heat and scratches, and is easy to clean.
This high-end material is naturally occurring. That means it comes in various unique color patterns, making it a one-of-a-kind design element in your home. It also has a natural veining that gives it extra character and visual interest.
In your journey to building a custom home, working with a professional kitchen and bathroom designer is crucial to get the most out of your space. They will help you pick the perfect granite countertop for your home based on your home’s style, kitchen layout, and the colors you are drawn to.
Quartz is a high-end alternative to granite. But unlike granite, quartz is artificially made from natural materials. It’s among the most hygienic countertop material due to its non-porous nature.
Quartz is also highly durable, extremely strong, and resists heat and scratches. It’s also a low-maintenance countertop making it ideal for a family home.
Since it consists of small natural quartz combined artificially to make a countertop, it mimics the looks of natural stone making its colors and designs unique. It also allows customization with bright colors or even glittery effects, which is not possible with natural stone.
Whether you are renovating your custom home or building a new one, Posada Custom Homes can help you select the perfect quartz countertop for your home.
Marble is a luxurious, natural stone used in high-end homes for centuries. It is elegant and classic with a timeless appeal. In fact, it’s synonymous with extravagance and royalty.
Marble is unique in that every piece has a one-of-a-kind veining and color pattern. It can range from white to black with a wide array of colors in between. It’s heat resistant and waterproof. (1)
Although beautiful, marble countertops do require more care than other materials. They are susceptible to staining and scratching, meaning they need sealing regularly. Ideally, they are perfect for bathroom vanities and other areas where they won’t get as much wear and tear. But if you want one for your kitchen, you will need regular maintenance visits from a professional.
