If you‘ve shopped for granite countertops, you will have noted mineral patterns in the stone, and one of those minerals is quartz. You might see some products touted as "natural" quartz. While the mineral is natural, don‘t think that the entire countertop is natural.
All kitchens have a fridge and a stove, even the galley kitchens. Plus, you‘ve probably added a toaster and a microwave and possibly a blender. Replace these essential appliances with pretty colored versions in a decor move that won‘t take up any more space than already necessary.
When it comes to kitchen countertops, natural materials might be the most popular option, but they are certainly not always the most affordable. Enter solid surface countertops like Corian, which have become increasingly popular thanks to their easy‐care nature and more affordable price points.
