To Distress Or Not To Distress? When it comes to installing stone kitchen counter tops, Granite tends to be the material of choice because it is so durable. Marble is much more likely to chip and break and it is more at risk form the day to day kitchen accidents like broken glasses and spilled food or wine. Granite is much more able to withstand this type of ongoing punishment and is far less likely to fall victim to staining like Marble is. Some people actually see this as positive thing in relation to marble. They like the aesthetic effect of a little bit of wear and tear on their counter tops to give a slightly vintage look to them, in such the same way as people often do with intentionally distressed clothing. Marble is quite often likened to a fine wine which gets better as it matures. One of the main benefits of Marble is that it is completely waterproof and will not suffer damage from steam or splashes from washing dishes. However, to really prolong its life the stone does need to be sealed by a professional. This needs to been repeated every so often to maintain the seal. The manufacturer should be able to offer advice about how often this needs to be carried out.
It is Uncomfortable for Family Members. With the increasing number of family members, the need for a large kitchen increases. If you are going to get married in the near future or expecting a child, it is best to consider the requirements of new family members. If the kitchen is not suitable for a large family, do not think of buying a new home. Simply consider remodeling the kitchen to increase its space. When you have small children in your home, it is best to baby-proof the kitchen. Ask the renovation contractor to build sturdy cabinets that do not cause any injury to small children. He will address your safety concerns effectively and build kitchen cabinets keeping the safety of your children in mind.
