Selecting a Hard Surface for Your Home

When it comes to selecting a hard surface, the choices can be overwhelming. So, where do you begin? Let the experts at The Black Goose Design help you by sharing some valuable points. You need to know your options and the application that will work best for your use. Above all, seek out a surface that is durable, yet stylish, serving its purpose day after day.

Quartz:  With the beauty of stone, and functionality of solid surfacing, you receive a high quality look by getting the best of both worlds. The styling of quartz is generally uniform. Most likely what you see in a design showroom will typically be the end result in your home, giving you peace of mind in consistency when it comes to selection. Quartz also has an added bonus by being resistant to staining and scratching making this the most durable product.

Granite: A classic, natural product that will stand the test of time. With it being a natural rock, this look will lend character into your space while being completely design savvy. Natural patterns and varied color found in nature complement this long-lasting surface. Granite performs and stands up well to heat and everyday wear. You even have the ability to cut right on your surface. Granite is a rock-solid option for a well-loved space.

Marble: There is something captivating about marble. The movement and veining speaks beauty. Marble is naturally cool, yet radiant, making it a classic choice. Keep in mind, this surface has the tendency to stain. Ensure there is a proper sealing. Nevertheless, marble is an exceptional choice that will create a dramatic statement.  

Tile: Tile is such a versatile surface option. It can easily be worked into any space application, particularly in backsplashes and flooring. These areas are "prime real estate" where they receive a lot of visual attention. The possibilities can be endless. Express creativity or play up a pattern. Simply put, have fun with it. A helpful tip is to complement colors in your countertops. This allows you to mix up textures with different materials. Introduce a bold print, add in a complementary border, or lay tile in a pattern that is unexpected.

Decorative edging will also add elegance and depth. By mixing up color, texture and material with your hard surfaces, you can find tile that complements and still keeps a uniform look.
