Kitchen Counters and Bath Counters


Corian Laminate | Quartz | Butcherblock | Granite | Cultured Marble | Marble | Custom Projects

We know that life happens in the kitchen.  More science fair projects are constructed on the kitchen counter.  Weddings are planned around the kitchen counter.  Famous chefs get their start by standing on a chair to reach the kitchen counter.  Designing your living space is easy when we take the time to know how you live. To us, it’s not just a kitchen, it’s where you live.

OK, what's the difference in the material that makes the countertops and why should I choose solid surface?


Here are a few things to think about. You will use your kitchen counters and bathroom counters everyday.  It is important that you get something you will enjoy for years.  This is an investment in your home and if little things like scratches or kinks in your countertop irritate you, you may feel like you have wasted your money.  Make the investment and get what you want.  Read on, then come to our Southern Maryland showroom to get ideas.  Go to our custom projects page to see completed jobs.

Laminate - least expensive, thin sheets placed over plywood.  The quality of laminate has changed dramatically over the years and there are so many choices in colors and patterns.


Butcherblock—Wood countertop, adds a richness and warmth to your kitchen counters. When it is properly maintained it looks better with age. You can have a whole countertop or just a section. There are many different variations on shades.

Cultured Marble, Marble * , Corian®, Quartz—These are solid through and through. The surfaces are very durable and maintain their beauty and sheen for many years. A little more of an investment but very well worth it especially when it comes to resale value. These are just a few colors. There are hundreds of colors and patterns from which to choose.

* Marble is porous and therefore should not be used for kitchen counters. Marble works well for bathroom counters.


Granite - Nothing compares to the unique beauty of natural stone. Granite is so much fun to work with because every piece is different. The flaws are the beauty in granite. Here are just a couple of samples. Go to our custom projects and come to the showroom to see what we have.

Money Saving Idea You do not necessarily have to change your whole cabinet to get a new look. If your kitchen counters or bathroom counters are scratched but the wood on your cabinet is still in good condition, why not replace your tops? Call us today for a complimentary consultation.
