A small kitchen as well as a large one is hard to function in if there is not enough counter space. Counter space is very important and a good plan is to add as much counter space as possible. If a space is not being used by an appliance, add more countertops. The most popular countertop materials today are quartz and granite stone. Not only do they add elegance to any kitchen but they also add value to your home. Both stone counters are easy to clean, extremely durable, and offer amazing work areas for cooking and even cutting food. Beautiful countertops are also great for entertaining friends and for a quick dining area. It can be difficult to choose between the two, so why not both? More homes are incorporating different kitchen countertop materials for a unique look and to add more functionality to the kitchen area.
