RE Salesperson (C) 585-734-3362 The Kitchen Countertop Challenge If you're contemplating a way to heighten the elegance, func- tionality and resale value of your home, it's wise to take a look at the latest trends in kitchen surfaces. A major kitchen remodel can increase the real value of your home more significantly than any other alteration. It's important to know what styles and materials are most popular with consumers when you select your new kitchen surfaces. Home design experts say homeowners are most interested in natural, highly durable materials this year. Upscale kitchens often include stone countertops, the most popular being granite, marble, quartz and limestone. Granite countertops are a current homeowner favorite because they're the most durable. You can carve a roast, roll pizza dough, or set a hot frying pan directly on granite without damaging it. Although stone is porous, requiring special sealants to keep out mositure, granite is the least absorbent and only requires reseal- ing about once a year. Other popular countertops are stainless steel, tile and plastic laminate. The choice will be determined by the style, color scheme and price of your kitchen.
