The Story of Countertops
The typical countertop we envision today has been around about one hundred years. The idea is to have a useful continuous work surface and factors usually considered are durability, functionality, hygienics, appearance, and cost. Materials vary from natural stones, metals, manufactured materials, and a combination of natural and manufactured materials. Countertops are typically 25-26 inches from front to back and from 35 to 36 inches from the floor.
Countertop options have come a long way. By combining form with function, they set a tone and a standard. Be it the classic elegance of Quartz, the sleek feel of solid surface or a colorful laminate, countertop options are almost endless. Printable countertop and other one sheets.
Laminate is glued onto an inch-and-a half particleboard base and can be customized with finished edges that are beveled or curved-wood or laminate. Our laminate countertop vendors include: Formica | WilsonArt | Counterpro | Pionite
Solid Surface offers a seamless acrylic face with seams that are only visible from the underside. Sink and counter materials can be integrated to create a fluid graceful line. Our premier solid surface vendor is: Staron
