Heat resistance: One of the considerations when choosing a countertop material is the heat resistance when you are cooking. You shouldn’t put hot pans directly on countertops. Using a trivet between the pan and the countertop surface is a good idea. Natural stone materials and concrete can endure heat better than plastic laminate that can leave a scorch mark. Ceramic tile countertops can take heat, but may crack due to rapid temperature changes. To be certain, do not place heated pans on countertops, stainless steel is one of the few countertops that can endure heat.
A trending countertop look involves wrapping your countertop material by using it on the top and sides of cabinets, as seen in the image above. A wrap creates an interesting look that draws the eye across other parts of the room. For the most visual impact, add this effect to your kitchen if your countertops are a contrasting color to the rest of the kitchen components.
Concrete is durable, earthy and has a subtle textural feel to its pattern. The best part is that concrete can be customized with staining, textural treatments and different finishes.
