Black islands are back!
- Mixed Metals! No longer is matchy-matchy a must. Now you can mix it up and have fun. Bronze, brushed nickel, chrome, and even brass can be combined to give you a unique and stunning look to your kitchen or bathroom.

Granite countertops are the best home improvement options on the market today. They can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home, improve the look of your kitchen and bathrooms, and can last for decades if they’re cared for properly. Making sure that they’re taken care of, however, can be difficult. While granite countertops that are professionally sealed require relatively little maintenance, it is important to clean them with a soap that won’t eat away at the finish.
Whether you enjoy the thrill of entertaining or simply want to add class and sophistication to your home, new countertops may be the solution. Though tempting to choose a countertop based on appearances alone, it’s also imperative to consider several other qualities, including cost, maintenance and durability. The home design experts at Premier Surfaces can explain the benefits of the most popular kitchen countertop materials and help you choose the best one for your household. Here’s an overview.
Engineered quartz countertops are becoming an increasingly popular option for today’s kitchens and bathrooms. Quartz can have the look of natural stone surfaces like granite or marble. It also comes in an array of beautiful colors and designs for a very contemporary feel. Homeowners can achieve a high end look with a product that is more durable than natural stone and requires much less maintenance.
Decorative tile is the perfect design choice for any room in the house. As a flooring material, ceramic tile is a durable and easy to maintain surface that will last years longer than carpet or vinyl. A tile backsplash in the kitchen is a high end complement to granite, marble, and quartz countertops. Decorative tile in a bathroom adds a spa like feel that stands up to moisture and humidity. Three current decorative tile trends include glass tiles, mosaic tiles, and wood look tiles.
Limestone adds a unique organic look to today’s kitchen and bath designs. The surface is very smooth and is available in a range of muted colors including white, brown, yellow, green, gray, and black. Honed matte finishes are popular choices. Limestone frequently contains fossils and sea shells imbedded in the slab, which adds interest to the surface. Continue reading
