Why the countertop is so important?

Whether it’s in the kitchen or bath, which are essential rooms, to begin with, the countertop will always be the first thing another person will notice, setting the tone of the room. It can be bold and vibrant, quiet, and serene, a focal point or subtle backdrop.

Countertops are also functional, providing work surfaces and storage. Our fully stocked inventory with trained installers makes Wholesale Flooring Services your ultimate source when shopping for countertops in Kent, WA.

Popular countertop materials

Talk to your countertop retailer, and you’ll hear about an overwhelming choice of materials from stone, such as marble, quartz, and granite, to metals such as stainless steel and copper. There’s also the “industrial chic” look of concrete, these days customized with various paints and stains. The rustic style is currently trending, so a butcher block counter may be right for your decor.

Laminate is affordable and, because of technology, which has expanded both the color palette and pattern collection, it’s becoming more popular again.

Solid surfacing materials are made from resins and acrylics and are easy to care for with a seamless, almost marble-like quality about them. Some even have environmentally friendly versions.

A word about stone

Marble is ultra-luxurious and available in a variety of colors with unique, one-of-a-kind veinings that you’ll never see in anyone else's home. Marble has a variety of edge treatments and is durable and heat resistant. One of the softer stones is porous, so a yearly sealing is a must; on the other hand, that softness makes it much easier to cut and fabricate.

Granite’s composition includes quartz and feldspar and some minerals that, depending on the amount, make the colors range from black and white to pink, red, green, and blue. It is one of the most popular countertop materials for kitchens or bathrooms because of its elegant look and heat, scratch, and stain-resistant. Granite should be sealed regularly as it is porous.
Quartz, while very much a natural stone, becomes "quartzite" when used in countertops. About three percent resin is added to the quartz, and that minimal manufacturing process makes the countertops hard and non-porous. Because of the non-porous characteristic, it does not harbor bacteria and becomes ultra-hygienic.
