A New Touch to an Old House

Countertops are relatively new to the horizon on Kitchen & Bath Remodels. The standard go-to was tile and occasionally wood throughout the early 1900’s. Wood can be impractical in this day and age since the upkeep is just too steep. As far as tile goes, it’s not a factor to consider in resale value of a home. Stone countertops may be new to the field but hold an old-world feel with a timeless precision about them.

Choosing the right backsplash

Considering the backsplash? Tile is most likely the way to go here. This was a big factor in character of the old home feel. Subway tiles are of course the staple with many different patterns to choose from. Outside of the subway there are many colors and choices that were used throughout the years. Finding those tiles and making them match will be the difficulty here. Follow the local links below to find supplies in town. And for a historic walk-through on Kitchen Backsplash, this Backsplash Progression article is spot on.

Hillyard is not all Old Homes, It’s Also Active Families

A family life is a busy life making the kitchen a runway for a torrent of events. When it comes to countertops for family life it needs to be something that stands up the test of time while also remaining relatively maintenance free. These are the primary arguments for Granite Countertops as they offer a solid surface that’s easy to clean while also providing a customizable surface that’s budget friendly.

What not to consider for active families

  • Marble – stains easily and is susceptible to scratches
  • Soapstone – Also soft and easily scratched
  • Soft Quartzite – Quartz is a durable countertop in general, but it’s good to check the strength ratio of quartzite before fully committing. If a quartz countertop is made mostly of dolmite it can be softer than traditional stone.
