Kitchen Countertop Ideas: North York

North York homes are renowned for their spacious design and innovative interior elements. It's often said that the kitchen is the heart of any home, and North York homeowners seem to understand that -- a large percentage of the GTA's kitchen renovations last year took place in Toronto's north end. Granite countertops remain very popular with homeowners and designers everywhere, but many other natural surfaces are available, including:

Stone and Metal Countertops

Granite is a classic stone look that has been gaining steadily in popularity since the 1980s. Once available only to the very wealthy, new techniques of extracting and processing the stone have made granite more affordable. Its toughness, beauty, and durability have made granite the number one kitchen countertop choice. Marble gives any kitchen a luxurious look. It, too, is durable and available in many colours and patterns. These natural stone counters have a depth and beauty that make them a focal point. Soapstone is an old-fashioned option that's coming back thanks to its density and hardness, and even limestone is now available. All natural stone resists heat and staining, but some care must be taken, and surfaces must be resealed each year. Engineered quartz is the newest option for people who like the look of stone but prefer low-maintenance materials. Ground quartz is mixed with resin and pigments for an extremely durable surface that requires no special care.
Metal countertops are also popular due to their look and durability. Stainless steel is excellent for busy kitchens, and is often found in restaurants and other serious food preparation areas. It's easy to clean, and looks sleek and professional. Zinc countertops have a dull patina that starts out pale grey and darkens over time. Zinc resists staining and can be hammered or given various other types of texture. Copper is not common, but can be a unique choice; it oxidizes over time and becomes a blend of deep reds, greens, and browns. Like the other metal options, copper is easily cleaned and resists stains.

Environmentally-Friendly Choices

Bamboo and other renewable materials have recently begun to gain in popularity. Bamboo is strong, hard, and very attractive, although most comes from China so energy used in shipping can reduce its "green” quotient. Repurposedwood can be a very environmentally-conscious choice, and can also add character to your kitchen. "Butcher block” styles are classic and are easy to care for. Recycled paper uses post-consumer paper mixed with resin and pigment to create a very durable and unique surface. Concrete is available in a variety of vivid colours, and is of course, extremely hardy. Concrete and glass can be combined to create a surface that's like a mosaic work of art. Some of the most beautiful eco-friendly countertops are made of composite recycled material. These products often use a large percentage of recycled materials mixed with natural stone scraps, and have a "cradle-to-cradle” certification.
