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.
Did you know that the kitchen is the busiest and most popular room in just about every house? Anytime there is a gathering of mates, they frequently wind up congregating in the kitchen. Whether it is the lighting, the food or the ambiance that draws them, many hosts and hostesses find their perfectly styled lounge abandoned by their houseguests in favour of the kitchen table. Conversely, with the exception of the bathroom, the kitchen also is very often among the smallest rooms in the house. This is one of the reasons that organising the kitchen is so very important. With the kitchen being the heart of the home, it is important that it be as functional and streamlined as possible. If your kitchen is often filled with people, then it is important that it not also filled with junk that you rarely use. There are many nifty appliances out there, that boast great talents at making this or that, but at the end of the day, if they are not being used on a daily basis, then they have no place cluttering up your kitchen counters. Determining what you actually use is a really important first step to organising your kitchen.
