Bathroom and Kitchen Countertops and Remodeling in Orange County, CA

 

Countertops

When it comes to designing your kitchen and bathroom one of the most important elements are the countertops. Countertops see a lot of action; in the kitchen they take some abuse from hot pans, chopping knives, and spilled liquids and in the bathroom they are the resting place for hot curling irons, hair dryers, spilled make-up and much more.

Countertops are functional but they also offer an aesthetic value to every space. They provide the perfect opportunity to enhance the visual appeal of your kitchen and bath. Other design opportunities include backsplashes in kitchens and baths and eye-catching materials for your shower walls and tub surrounds.
 
 
One general consideration for kitchen planning is to be sure to consider entry doors and what direction they swing. The clear opening of a doorway should be a minimum of 32” wide which requires a 2'10” door. Doors should not interfere with other doors or objects like cabinets or appliances. If space is an issue, consider using a bi-fold door or pocket doors. This is a simple item to plan for, but a costly item to replace if changed after the completion of the project!

There are a variety of materials available today for countertops and many times no one material is best for all surfaces. This is especially true from a design perspective; combining different materials in creative applications always makes for a show stopper space!
 
Before you get started, consider the following:
 
  • Easy maintenance
  • Countertops of different materials
  • A natural material
  • Heat resistant materials
 
  • Stain resistant materials
  • Edge treatments
  • Backsplashes
  • Budget
 
  • Grout lines- do they bother you?
  • Islands- Do you have or are you planning one?
  • Integrated sinks
 

Granite

When it comes to durability, granite is grand.
Of all natural stone, granite is one of the hardest and densest, second only to diamond.
Made up mostly of quartz and feldspar, it resists staining and scratching better than any other natural stone, making it an ideal choice for your kitchen floor.

In fact, granite is durable and wearable enough for almost any application you can think of.
It's beautiful in foyers, bathrooms, libraries, or as an accent with other natural stones.

Mother Nature produces granite in a variety of colors such as rich browns, vibrant golds, warm creams and cooler blues, greens, grays and decadent black.

Marble

Marble has a legendary elegance. It was used throughout the ancient world because it was soft enough to be worked with tools but hard enough to last through the ages.

Once considered the domain of the rich and famous, marble can be used in many flooring applications throughout your home.
Just what is marble you may ask? It's a crystallized limestone that is not as hard as granite.

Marble comes in many different color variations and usually displays a prominent veining pattern with luxurious swirls and patches of contrasting color that make marble famous. Sophisticated grays and whites to a wide range of earth tones in both light and dark colors are the most popular.

Quartz

Quartz is an engineered stone that can be used in virtually any indoor surfacing application including kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, tub and shower surrounds, backsplashes, floors, walls, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, fireplace surrounds, and more. Available in a variety of different colors and finishes, this actual appearance of the quartz surface will vary depending on the size and mix of the rock granules. There are colors available to match virtually any décor.

This engineered stone is fabricated into slabs with different edge profiles from simple bevels to ogee, and will have seams depending on the application size and shape.
