Kitchen Benchtop: Heart of the Home?
A kitchen benchtop gets more attention than just about any other space in the house. Think about it. Every member of the household uses it several times a day, and it’s used for any number of purposes. From preparing food to stacking dirty dishes, to serving as a counter from which you may pack away recently bought groceries. And if you have younger children in the house (your own or your grandkids), well, then your kitchen bench is, no doubt, even more multi-purpose. From cooking experiments to science experiments, from school projects to the latest slime craze, your kitchen top is sure to take a beating.
The dear old kitchen bench works hard for us, month after month, year after year, and it looks fine … until it doesn’t. Suddenly, we notice the wear and tear. The bumps and scratches and stains. Worse still, it makes the whole kitchen look worn and torn. Seemingly overnight, our entire kitchen looks dated and drab. While a kitchen renovation may be required, sometimes all that’s needed is a new kitchen benchtop.
Is the Lowly Kitchen Benchtop Fully Appreciated?
At Transform-A-Space, we’ve been doing kitchen makeovers for many years. From personal experience, we can tell you how big a difference a new kitchen benchtop makes. In fact, it’s probably the heart of a kitchen transformation. Not only does it transform the look of a kitchen, but it also transforms the feel of a kitchen—and when it comes to the sanctity of one’s kitchen, feel is just as important as look … if not more so.
It was the American novelist and newspaper columnist, Fanny Fern, who first implied that food was the way to a man’s heart. A little overstated perhaps, but not too many people would argue against the notion that food is one way to touch people’s hearts. And because the kitchen is key to food preparation, the kitchen benchtop plays a central role in it all. (You’ll never look at your kitchen bench the same way again!)
