The Beauty and Durability of Quartz Countertops

If you love a natural look but crave as little maintenance as possible for your Denver Kitchen, consider installing Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops can be strikingly beautiful, and they require much lower maintenance than natural stone products. Because it is one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz makes for the most durable option for kitchen countertops. It’s non-porous surface and unique blend of beauty with the look of natural stone topped with its easy maintenance makes quartz an exceptional match for any lifestyle.
Because quartz countertops are manufactured, the color and pattern possibilities are endless, including options that are almost identical to granite or marble. One of the largest benefits of quartz surfaces is they tend to be stain, scratch and heat resistant, making them very easy to maintain. Its non-porous quality also makes it highly resistant to mold and bacteria contamination. Quartz countertops

The eye-catching natural beauty of quartz is derived from its multi-dimensional gem-like color. They can come in a wide variety of colors and designs, including red and apple green as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams, or with the sparkles and veining look of granite and marble.

Where do Quartz Countertops come from?

Unlike natural stone slabs (which are mined), quartz slabs are engineered in a factory. The primary ingredient is about 94% ground quartz, combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments for color or small amounts of recycled glass and flecks of metal for a veined or patterned look.
Our premium quartz countertop manufacturers can offer multihued slabs with enough flecks, swirls, and random patterning to make them almost indistinguishable from granite, the leading king of countertop choices. And besides the polished finish look, you can also get them with a honed, sandblasted, or embossed treatment. The very low-to-none maintenance required of quartz (and certainly no re-sealing necessary) is making it a very sought after option nowadays.
At The Kitchen Showcase, we have several quartz countertop options that will match any kitchen design and budget. Let us work with you in finding the best countertop solution for your Denver home. You will be amazed how new countertops can make your kitchen or bathroom stand out, that you will be wanting to spend a lot more time in there!

6 Tips to Spring-Clean Your Kitchen!

Denver Kitchen Remodeling: The Kitchen Showcase

Custom kitchen remodel in Denver by TKS

Take advantage of the season change for a deep clean

Winter is officially over, but the cold weather is not. Since there’s not much you can do outdoors at the moment, why not make a good use of your indoor time at home and give your kitchen a thorough deep-clean?
Kitchen cabinets and drawers in Denver
These are some tips for you to leave your Denver kitchen spotless and ready to welcome the Spring and Summer months coming ahead:

Dust and clean the cabinets, cupboards, drawers, and walls

Believe it or not, your kitchen cabinets can be exposed to more dirt, bacteria, and grease than other parts of your home, so this is a good place to start. This might be a good time also to wipe clean the backsplash and the walls of your kitchen.
Clean the exterior of your cabinets and then empty the drawers and cupboards, sweep out crumbs, dust and clean any stains with a wet cloth and gentle cleaner. If you’re up for it, you can put new contact paper at the bottom. Take advantage of this process to re-organize everything and throw away what is no longer needed, from your kitchen utensils and flatware to bowls, pans and anything you store there.

Clean the oven, stove, and small appliances

If you don’t have a self-cleaning oven, apply oven cleaner and leave it to work for a while (make sure open the windows for ventilation). While the oven cleaner does its job, you can scrub the stove and wipe down and clean your other appliances, such as the toaster, blender, etc. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations for all of them!

Clean the refrigerator

Throw out any expired food, almost empty containers, and items that you bought and never used. Wash the refrigerator shelves and drawers, and wipe down the entire inside of the refrigerator and freezer before replacing shelves and food.

Clean the sink, garbage disposal, and dishwasher

The kitchen sink is the one place where odors, germs, and food scraps tend to accumulate. These steps can help you keep your sink clean, which is also a good way to get inspired to do the dishes right away instead of leaving them in a pile! Cleaning the garbage disposal is easily done in 3 steps; and to clean the dishwasher, add a little white vinegar to it before running an empty cycle to get rid of any odors. Don’t forget to empty the food trap afterward.

Scrub your pots and pans

Cast iron: scrub them with coarse salt and a soft sponge. The salt is a natural abrasive that absorbs oil and lifts away bits of food while preserving the pan’s seasoning. Rinse away and wipe dry.
Stainless steel: even though these are considered stainless, they are prone to stains from heat and hard water. To remove them, apply white vinegar with a soft cloth and rub, then dry thoroughly after washing to prevent a film from forming. Never soak stainless steel cookware; this will result in pitted surfaces!

Organize your pantry

Last but not least, take of this important room of the kitchen. Throw out anything that’s expired, including canned goods and herbs or spices that have been in there for too long (a year is a good enough time). Then re-organize your supplies in the most convenient way for you!

Even though everyone may know the importance of keeping a clean kitchen, we hope you find these steps to deep-clean your kitchen useful. Other things you can also do in the process is to wash the trash bins, sharpen your knives, declutter your fridge’s door, wash the windows and of course, clean and mop the kitchen floor.

TKSI traditional portfolio aristokraft
The importance of a good sized, productive, and functional kitchen is vital nowadays. Design trends can come and go, but when it has to do with the heart of the home, it’s important to know what others are doing so in case you decide to sell your home, you can get the most out of your kitchen in terms of resell value!
Kitchen cabinets are one of the most important elements of a kitchen, and they are definitely what gives them their good looks (or not!). So these are the trends that took force in 2016 and that seem to be going to stick around for 2017:

Personalized Cabinets

Custom wood cabinets in Denver
Despite any trends, many homeowners are adding cabinet styles, colors, and functions that fit their needs and desires. And besides custom cabinet manufacturers, other cabinet companies are aware of this so they now offer several styles to try to adapt to any home design or style.

Clean Lines & Refined Design

Cabinet door styles have become simpler by using clean lines to ensure design flexibility in the long term. Due to the modern style increasing popularity, clean lines and subtle designs make sense for anyone looking to upgrade their kitchen cabinets.
Shaker style cabinets are also a popular trend in current kitchen renovations because of the classic and simple look they give to either a traditional or contemporary design.

Neutral Colors

Next to the clean line trend, neutral colors such as white, gray, or earthy tones are quite popular because they work well with a variety of design elements. These colors not only provide a sense of warmth but give you more design freedom to add bold colors elsewhere, providing a seamless blend throughout the house.

Functional Design

Nowadays, every aspect of the home needs to casually blend function and design, and kitchen cabinets are no exception. Thanks to that concept, you have a multiple of cabinet options that are not only beautiful, but that can fit your storage, organization, and access needs.

Horizontal Orientation

Squares and vertical rectangles are still very popular designs choices for kitchen cabinets, but there is also a rise in horizontal cabinetry demand. With wider cabinets there is not much need to stack cabinets if you have enough storage. Horizontal cabinets not only makes access much easier, they give your kitchen a cleaner, more refined look.

High-Tech Additions

Given the highly technological and connected world that we live in, many homeowners are looking to incorporate a tech perspective to their kitchen cabinets. Built-in charging stations, hands-free devices and tablet holders add functionality and value to the techy kitchen owner.
