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.
If you like the contemporary feel of sleek, minimalist cabinets, add visual interest with patterned kitchen countertops. Some great kitchen countertop ideas for pattern include the use of striped stone materials or textures like series.
Take inspiration from the professional cook’s practical countertop two-tone approach to create a one-of-a-kind kitchen.
