And they don’t have to be expensive.

If your current kitchen decor inspires visions of disco balls and bell bottom pants maybe it’s time for a much needed update. But do you need a complete kitchen makeover, or just a facelift?

The answer depends on your budget. The bad news is that a total renovation project can be very costly. The good news is that you can replace your counter tops and feel as though you have a brand new kitchen.

That’s because your counter top is the most visible source of color in the kitchen. If your cabinets are white or wood, then what immediately catches your eye is the surface you use the most – your counter top.

Kitchen countertops are the most important work surface and key element in the design and luxury of your home. Today’s latest designs in counter tops can take a moderate looking kitchen and turn it to a kitchen out of a decor magazine or interior design show.

If you look at what’s available you will be amazed at the selection not only of colors but textures and finishes as well. The primary goal is to find a durable, stain-resistant and easy to clean surface that will also bring style, elegance and beauty to your kitchen.

The two most popular counter top materials which meet this current demand for both practicality and elegance are the new solid and quartz surfaces.
“We offer the two hottest products in the market today but your choice has everything to do with your taste,” said Mark Hanna, President of Montreal=based Leeza Distribution Inc., one of North America’s leading distributors of Samsung’s Staron Solid Surfaces and HanStone Fine Quartz Surfaces. “If you have an affinity for stone which provides visual impact and dominance in a kitchen, than HanStone is for you.

Whereas if you don’t want all the attention to be on your counter top and true functionality is your goal, than Staron would be the ideal choice.” Both surface materials meet the highest standards for hygiene and cleanliness in the industry (certified NSF 51) thanks to their nonporous properties. Also of great importance, both are accredited with Greenguard environmental certification for low emitting products.

Samsung Staron is recognized as one of the top lines of acrylic solid surfaces in the market today because of its unlimited flexibility in design. “Unlike stone, which is a hard flat surface with design limitations, solid surfaces allow any design style and application you can imagine to blend with your kitchen design.” added Hanna.

With counter tops it’s still all about color and with Staron’s over 70 color choices you can find the perfect color to complement your kitchen decor.

Meanwhile, Quartz counter tops, such as the industry’s top rated HanStone surfaces, offer a sophisticated elegance and timeless beauty in virtually any surfacing application. As the fastest growing category of premium counter tops, quartz surfaces are stronger than granite and because they’re nonporous, they require no sealing, are highly resistant to scratches, stains, and bacteria growth and come in a wide range of dramatic colors and patterns.
