    Designing Your Granite Countertops

    Last updated 7 days ago

    When you are getting ready to redesign your kitchen, consider how granite countertops can make your space more modern and functional. Granite countertops are aesthetically pleasing, and are one of the first things that homebuyers look for during a search for real estate. Even if you’re not planning on selling your home anytime soon, granite countertops are still a smart choice because they are durable, attractive, and long-lasting. Once you decide to have granite countertops installed, you’ll have to figure out what you want them to look like. Keep reading for tips on designing your granite countertops.

    Color
    One of the first decisions you’ll need to make regarding your granite countertops is what color you’d like them to be. Granite is available in a broad spectrum of colors, so you can let your imagination go wild. To make your kitchen a brighter place, consider using lighter colors. You can match the granite color to the color of your fixtures or flooring, or use your countertops to complement the color of your walls.

    Pattern
    Granite is a natural material and therefore has many variations, but there are three main patterns you can choose from. Granite slabs that have a more solid pattern are a good choice for smaller kitchens and those with a sleek, minimalistic design. Marbled granite that mimics the appearance of marble with streaks and color variations can lend an elegant look to your kitchen. If you want to give your kitchen design added interest, speckled granite might be the right choice for you. Variations in color and texture will make speckled granite one of the main focal points in your kitchen.

    Finish
    Now that you have a better idea of what you want your granite countertops to look like, it’s time to figure out the finishing touches. Granite can come in a honed or glossy finish to achieve whatever design aesthetic you’re going for. Honed granite has a matte finish for simplicity, while glossy, shiny granite makes your countertops stand out a bit more.

    Elevate your kitchen design with the addition of granite countertops. At Houston Custom Carpets, we make it easy for you to get the countertops of your dreams. Call us at (832) 412-1151 to get a free quote for your kitchen remodeling project.

    Where to Use Engineered Wood Flooring in Your Home

    Last updated 23 days ago

    Durable and versatile, hardwood flooring can provide just about any room with the perfect finishing touch. Since solid hardwood expands and contracts with changes in relative humidity levels and engineered wood does not, engineered hardwood is a better floor covering choice than solid hardwood for rooms with plumbing fixtures and frequent water use. Engineered wood flooring is less susceptible to water damage. Some places in your home where it would be advantageous to use engineered wood flooring include:

    Kitchens
    If you want to have the look of genuine hardwood in your kitchen but do not want to face the risks associated with regularly exposing solid hardwood flooring to water and food, engineered wood flooring is the perfect choice for you. Moisture resistant and easily cleaned, engineered wood flooring looks like solid hardwood flooring and is composed almost entirely of wood.

    Children’s Rooms
    The veneer that covers engineered hardwood floors is not entirely scratch-resistant, but it does serve as a formidable layer of protection. This, combined with its affordability, makes engineered hardwood flooring a great option for children’s rooms and play areas.

    High-Traffic Areas
    Simultaneously cozy and elegant, engineered wood flooring is ideal for parts of the home where you spend a great deal of time. The cross-grain configuration of engineered wood flooring makes it exceptionally stable. Add to this its durable nature, and you have a great option for high-traffic areas in engineered wood flooring. Consider using it in living rooms, dining rooms, front entryways, hallways, and other busy parts of your home.

    Cheaper, easier to install, and less susceptible to scratches and water damage than solid hardwood, engineered wood flooring is ideal for many home applications. If you live in Humble, Kingwood, or elsewhere in the Houston area and are looking for a flooring store with an excellent selection of engineered hardwood and other high-quality flooring options from which you can choose, call Houston Custom Carpets at (832) 412-1151.
