Granite Countertops in Denver

New granite countertops are a popular feature when incorporating high-impact elements to your kitchen remodel. As a reliable material, granite countertops Denver can trust to stand up to the test of time should be installed by a professional. Although you have many other options in terms of material, like silestone countertops or quartz, but overall – the benefits of granite are difficult to match.

Reliable, Functional, and Stylish

Granite, compared to other materials, has the most to offer in ease, function, and resilience. As a kitchen or bathroom countertop, granite can withstand heat, sharp objects, spills, and bacteria with proper cleaning methods. With the many different styles and options available for design, granite slabs are a top choice for homeowners. The lighter varieties of granite are more susceptible to staining and require a sealing treatment, but there are many varieties that have such a high density, there is no worry of staining and therefore require no sealing process at all.

Denver Countertops: Quartz and Granite Share Important Similarities


February 5, 2020

Both quartz and granite countertops offer homeowners a virtually indestructible surface material option for their construction needs. Regardless of if you are in the midst of a remodeling project or building a brand new kitchen (or other applicable area, i.e. bathroom) from the ground up - having a suitable and reliable material is extremely important. The flexibility offered to property owners who choose to install a natural stone surface is virtually endless. While choosing the appropriate material does require some research, two of the typical front-runners offer individuals many of the same benefits.

Both granite and quartz each possess their own unique properties but determining if one is actually better than the other can prove to be a difficult task. Depending on your personal preference and style, these two natural stone countertops can probably both be adjusted to fit your needs although the battle continues about quartz vs. granite countertops for many homeowners. While granite may possess a more natural feel with noticeable veining and other indications of solid rock formations, quartz too shares some similar properties.

Each of these three critical factors for ensuring you are getting the best countertop surface span both options equally.

Durability

Being a natural stone component (quartz) and literal rock (granite), each has tremendous durability and will likely outlast many of the other features within a home. From the roof to windows, one area property owners will not have to worry about replacing is the countertop, regardless of which material is ultimately chosen.

Upkeep

While there may be a few more steps to taking care of granite countertops, neither surface requires any painstaking maintenance. Once sealed, the occasional wipe down and general cleaning should keep your surfaces looking great for years to come.

Appearance

Depending on if you’re trying to achieve a specific color or if you favor a more natural look, are essentially the two main factors for which surface may be best suited for your space. Both will increase the value of the area where they are applied, aesthetically and monetarily, with each offering distinct character depending on personal preference. Granite tends to have more of a natural look than quartz but both are similarly distinct.

Denver Bathroom and Kitchen Countertop Cohesiveness


January 15, 2020

Countertops seem to always play a key factor in the decision making process of homeowners or potential buyers - whether these individuals are purchasing a new home, completing a reconstruction project, or installing an entirely new surface area. These spaces not only receive a fair amount of wear and tear through meal prep and other related uses, but they also serve to create a focal point in common areas for any residence.

Ensuring you have the correct materials installed, in addition to correlating your surface materials throughout the home, can play an important role within the interior design concept. For many, the idea to incorporate a similar construction material throughout the residence is important, but not necessarily something that must be done. With so many options for kitchen and bathroom countertops, the main goal is to choose an appropriate material but creating a cohesiveness throughout the property can also appeal to both current residents or potential home buyers in the future.

Kitchen Countertops

There are a variety of different factors to consider when choosing a kitchen countertop material. Desired colors, usage, shape, and budgets can all weigh in on the ultimate decision. Choosing a solid option based on these factors will go a long way in determining if you wish to correlate a similar style throughout the remainder of your home. 

Bathroom Countertops

Bathroom countertops do not typically receive the same amount of usage as that of their kitchen counterparts but if you’re matching styles throughout a home then choosing the same material is obviously important. Color schemes of a kitchen may not match the bathroom, but different hues for the same material can often be found when dealing with granite and other natural surface material options.

Benefits of Matching

One of the main benefits to matching your countertops within a home revolves around care and upkeep. If installed at the same time, a schedule can be kept for routine maintenance within the home. While the care for natural surfaces is often minimal, having only one type of countertop to keep up with can be beneficial. In addition, the feel and flow of a home can be enhanced when there is a cohesiveness throughout the property, such as similar countertops from one room to the next. Just as the open floor plan has been used to create a feeling of flow from one room to the next, these matching surfaces serve in a similar manner - even when walls are in place to break up the floorplan.

If you’re ready to enhance an existing bathroom or kitchen with some new matching countertops or want to simply add something of your own, then look no further than the highly qualified experts at HTI Granite and Cabinetry. Serving the Denver and surrounding areas, including Wyoming, for years, we’re here to help and assist with any bathroom or kitchen remodeling or construction project you have in mind.

Denver Kitchen Cabinets: Mismatched Colors Set New Trend


November 20, 2019

Kitchen design concepts have come and gone, been revitalized, and lasted generations but as each different measure changes, new ideas infiltrate the process. These concepts either typically build upon an existing foundation or challenge the status quo, but once they are introduced into the market, then homeowners have their say as to whether or not each makes a lasting impression to sustain the test of time.

Natural stone is quickly becoming one of the top materials for kitchen countertops, above solid surface and laminate options. These not only provide a lasting and durable surface, but they also can serve to enhance the look of a kitchen and make it a focal point of the home’s interior. Utilizing these options is just one example of how a relatively new concept has skyrocketed into the mainstream reaching home interiors throughout the country.

Another rising fad is alternating or contrasting cabinet colors or designs. These trends are gaining momentum and may find their way into your home sooner rather than later.

Kitchen Island Contrast

One of the most popular options available to homeowners is the contrasting kitchen islands color scheme. While the cabinets installed match throughout the space, those located on the island are of a contrasting color. This look can create a bold and unique appearance within the kitchen, while serving to make the space look larger depending on the colors provided.

Alternating Styles - Open Shelving, Glass Front

Another option is to differentiate between cabinet styles themselves. Traditional closed-door cabinets can be paired with glass-front options or even open shelving to help break up the monotony of an area. These different options can also add their own splashes of color with the exposed contents of see-through doors or decorative options along open shelving.

Multiple Concepts

Mixing and matching all of the above is also becoming more acceptable depending on the homeowner’s preference. Utilizing the kitchen space as its own functional but inspirational area is something many contractors and home developers are beginning to lean upon. These new ways to think about incorporating different colors and styles into the kitchen are likely here to stay - especially with the continued rise of open floor plans and the ability to appreciate these new colors and styles from other areas of the home. 

If you’re ready to upgrade or enhance your kitchen with some new colorful and potentially, an alternated style of cabinets, or want to simply add something of your own, then look no further than the highly qualified experts at HTI Granite and Cabinetry.

Denver Onyx Countertop and Alternate Uses


November 5, 2019

Natural stone countertops have increased in popularity due to both their durability and somewhat eccentric look. The abstract veining and natural color occurrences throughout many of the different options available to homeowners has aided in the installation of these materials into the home. Serving as countertops in both the kitchen and bathrooms, some property owners elect to have different surfaces in each while others choose to maintain a consistency throughout their home.

No matter your personal preference, there is one particular stone that carries more of a specific and unique look than its counterparts. Onyx can be especially colorful and often has a look that cannot be matched by any of the other stone options but there are a few things people should consider, including some must know advice with pros and cons before installation. As with any natural stone there will be options to consider before deciding to move forward with a project. If onyx doesn’t fit into your plans for countertops throughout the home, consider a few of these other areas where the colors can be admired without having to worry about the wear a kitchen counter may endure.

Bathrooms

Electing to utilize onyx on a bathroom vanity as opposed to the kitchen can significantly reduce the amount of wear the surface undertakes. Homeowners get to enjoy the beauty available from an onyx stone while not having to worry so much about the pots and pans banging around or cutting that can be completed on other solid surfaces.

Backsplash

Choosing an onyx backsplash also allows a way for the property owner to enjoy the natural look of a stone without the routine maintenance. These areas serve a purpose to protect the walls around countertop areas but aren’t subject to the same use of a countertop surface. Here, a homeowner can benefit from the same exquisite look and have guests see their choice of style, more so than even a bathroom vanity may offer.

Accents

Another solid option for onyx around the home is to be used as an accent piece, around a fireplace or as a border near another surface. Each can provide useful options for this special stone while still allowing everyone the opportunity to enjoy the beauty and uniqueness of the material, without the same worries of what a countertop may endure.

Denver Kitchen Cabinetry and Appliance Color Decisions


September 11, 2019

Along with the multiple decisions associated with a kitchen construction or remodel are the important factors associated with color. While many will fret over the countertop materials and ensuing color selections, in addition to how it correlates with the cabinets, there is also another pivotal aspect. Matching or correlating your kitchen appliances to the colors within your kitchen is another important component. Typical kitchen appliances include a refrigerator, microwave, stove, and dishwasher - each of which comes in a variety of different hues and traditionally are all comprised of a similar color or material but how does one determine the overall correlation within the kitchen.

There are typically three different schools of thought for this aspect. Top kitchen design styles include a variety of different factors and depending on personal preference, these can be tweaked to match each and everyone’s styles. A look at each is included below with the ultimate determination being made from how these color patterns match or not with the traditional appliance hues - black, white, or silver.

Light and Dark
Light cabinetry colors with dark appliances can put the details on your kitchen squarely on the countertops and other surface areas. By combining the high end color hues of cabinets with darker refrigerators and dishwashers, the combination creates a warm and inviting environment. In addition, the lighter cabinets can help to offset a countertop color of any selection.

Dark and Light
Darker cabinets mixed with lighter appliances is a lesser known combination but one that can also work with any countertop surface or color. Having silver or white appliances combined with darker cabinets can be offset with a bright countertop or correlated with a darker surface to incorporate both design styles.

Mix and Match
A more recent trend is to mix and match the color patterns of all components within a kitchen. Having an island or bar top that is different than the remainder of the kitchen surfaces is something that creates a unique style and can make the space specific to each individual homeowner. Understanding you countertops don’t have to match can open up an entirely different realm of possibility.
