Granite is a natural stone material, found deep underground, that is prized for its unique earthen-inspired patterns that ebb and flow with naturally-occurring flourishes. Granite certified by Kitchen Magic is quarried from small mines in Italy, Brazil, India and in the U.S.A, and also comes backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Laminates to Love
Whether on a budget or just looking for more creative solutions for your countertop surface, laminate countertops from Formica® and WilsonArt® HD offer smart, money-saving options. Laminates today are affordable, durable, and easy to maintain. Plus, they are available in an endless variety of colors and designs including wood and stone finishes.
The Quest for Quartz
Durable, reliable and practically maintenance-free, quartz countertops will continue to trend indefinitely. Whether choosing a slab of natural quartz or luxurious engineered quartz from leading brands such as Cambria® and Hanstone®, quartz products offer an eco-friendly solution with real design appeal for your kitchen countertops. Quartz is ultra sanitary, easy to clean and available in an endless array of colors and patterns.
Engineered solid surfaces, like Corian®, provide homeowners with a uniquely seamless countertop appearance. Corian was first introduced by DuPont™ in 1971 when one of their researchers discovered an advanced method for blending natural minerals with pure acrylic resin, creating an ideal surface for kitchen and bath countertops. Non-porous, stain resistant and easy to maintain, Corian® will keep its good looks while surviving the impact of nicks and cuts that can occur with daily usage.
