Here are the best (and worst!) types of commercial office countertops

As a business owner or property manager, you know that commercial buildings have different needs from residential properties. That’s true for everything from the HVAC system to the plumbing. However, putting “creature comforts” in your office isn’t hard to do. That’s why Superior installs various types of commercial office countertops.

In this blog, we’ll run through the best countertops for commercial offices and business spaces. From the needs of small businesses to larger enterprises, Superior Stone & Cabinet is your source for quality countertop installation here in the Phoenix metro area.

The top-tier class of commercial office countertops

Increasingly, employees in a commercial office setting have come to expect amenities that they’re used to seeing in their own home. This includes full kitchens where employees can prepare and eat food, as well as places where they can take breaks.

If you’re a property manager, here are the two types of commercial office countertops that can help your property attract the right type of business tenants:

Granite countertops

Granite just looks right in an office setting.

Many people think of granite as the “king of countertops.” It’s versatile and modern enough to be used in a variety of settings, and it looks just as great in an office setting as it does in the home. It’s striking and conveys cleanliness and upscale amenities. 

Granite countertops are easy to care for and clean, and they can take some abuse from knives and hot objects. If you’re outfitting a commercial space with countertops, this is an important feature, since you don’t want to be quickly replacing your newly installed countertops.

Granite is probably also not as expensive as you might think. Superior Stone & Cabinet buys our granite in bulk, straight from the quarry. By cutting out the middleman and processing large orders, we can save you serious money on new granite countertops for your commercial project.

Quartz countertops

Splendor Grey Quartz

This is a sample of Splendor Grey quartz—one of our popular types of quartz countertops.

You’ve probably seen quartz countertops before without explicitly realizing that they’re quartz. In our opinion, there’s no better countertop for a trendy, modern office space. Many restaurants use quartz: it’s durable, relatively inexpensive, and clean-looking. It matches the desired decor of the 21st-century office space.

If you’re a property manager deciding between granite and quartz, think about the desired aesthetics of the prospective tenants you want to attract. Granite matches the feel of law firms and doctor’s offices. Quartz just feels right in the office of tech startups and small businesses. Ask your current tenants what they think!

Two countertop types commercial offices should probably avoid

Not all countertops are the right fit for commercial spaces and offices. Here are two that you should probably steer clear of when you’re shopping for new commercial office countertops:

Marble

Marble is classical and elegant. It’s beautiful and truly unlike any other type of countertop. However, it’s not as durable as granite or quartz when it comes to discoloration or stains.

In a residential setting, this might not matter as much: many homeowners place marble in bathrooms where it won’t see too much use. Obviously, your office kitchen gets a lot more foot traffic.

In addition, marble can get pricey at the volume needed in commercial settings. If you want the look of marble, talk to the team here at Superior Stone & Cabinet. We may be able to find you a granite countertop that resembles marble so that you can have the best of both worlds.

Plastic

Plastic is incredibly appealing because it’s often the most cost-effective means of adding countertops to a commercial office. However, it’s just not durable enough for this type of use.

Knife nicks, burns, stains, discoloration, cracking—in a residential setting, plastic can go the way of the dodo fast. But, in a commercial setting where office kitchens see a ton of traffic and use, that plastic countertop is going to need to be replaced really quickly.

Granite

To give your kitchen a high-end renovation, installing granite countertops is arguably the best way to go. Granite surfaces are made using granite stone that comes in various natural colors and inherent designs. If properly taken care of, these countertops can look great even after decades of use.

They are more heat resistant and less prone to minor knife nicks than other countertop materials.

To make them strain-resistant, however, you have to seal them frequently. Due to their heavy weight, you kitchen will need robust cabinet boxes to support them.

Here are some articles we’ve previously written about granite countertops:

Quartz

Distinctive features and durability are the mark of quartz countertops. Made from a mixture of quartz and resin, these countertops have a wide variety of color options.

The addition of the resin to the natural stone makes quartz countertops non-porous, which results in greater strain-resistance capabilities.

Quartz countertops are more flexible due to the addition of polymer in their preparation. More flexibility means these kitchen countertops will be less prone to scratches and chips.

However, the addition of polymers and resins makes quartz countertops less heat-resistant than steel or granite ones. You’ll need to use a hot pad for hot pans and pots to ensure that your quartz doesn’t get weird markings.

Here are some articles we’ve written about quartz countertops:

Other, less common countertop materials

In this section, we’ll cover some less common types of countertop materials, such as stainless steel, laminate, and wood.

A word of advice first: You also have to consider the resale value of your home. You don’t want to be the only house on the block with a weird countertop type when you go to sell.

Stainless steel countertops

Stainless steel can be used to cover your kitchen countertops if you like shiny surfaces. This works especially well if your house interior has a minimalistic style. Stainless steel can easily be cleaned by using tap water or occasionally vinegar for those hard-to-remove spots.

Don’t use strong chemicals like bleach and caustic soda because it can speed up the slow-rusting process of the steel.

Stainless steel can be difficult to maintain, and it rarely fits in every home. You’ll want to consult with a home designer to figure out if stainless steel is the right fit for your kitchen.

Laminate countertops

Lamination has been used to cover kitchen countertops for ages. It is one of the most budget-friendly countertop material options. Laminate countertops are experiencing a rise in their popularity because they are now available in designs that closely resemble wood, granite and stone.

However, a big caveat: laminate countertops have many strikes against them. First, they’re less durable than other countertop materials to cuts, stains, burns, and more. They also have low resale value added; some homebuyers may even be turned off by a kitchen with laminate countertops.

Wood countertops

Some people love the look of wood countertops, but here’s the thing: you’ll need to spend a lot of time defending and maintaining this countertop type. While we like the look, the material itself just struggles to keep up with everyday life in the kitchen, where wood’s porous, absorbing nature works against it.

Here are 6 tips for caring for your laminate flooring

Laminate wood flooring not only looks attractive, but is durable as well. The flooring is easy to maintain and take care of. In this article, we’ll share some tips for keeping your laminate flooring in perfect shape for years to come. Be sure to call us at Superior Stone & Cabinet with any questions you have!

Laminate wood flooring

1. Use a microfiber mop to clean up

You should use a microfiber mop to clean your laminate wood flooring. This type of mop can easily glide across the floor and pick up pet hair without much difficulty.

The swiveled head of the microfiber mop makes it easy to clean large areas. They can easily go under chairs and tables. What’s more, the mop requires considerably less water to clean the floor.

This is good, since laminate flooring can easily bend if exposed to water. Learn more about how laminate wood flooring interacts with water.

2. Pick concentrated cleaners for your laminate wood flooring

When it comes to cleaning products for laminate flooring, you should only use concentrated cleaners. Avoid using cleaners that require you to add water to the floor, for the reasons listed above.

3. Avoid using vacuum cleaners that contain a beater bar

If you use a vacuum cleaner to clean your laminate flooring, you should avoid using one that contains a beater bar. Using the vacuum cleaner with a beater bar can damage your flooring.

Also, you should consider sweeping with a broom in the direction that the floor is laid. This will help in collecting the dust stuck in between the grooves.

4. Put down protective pads and floor mats

Another piece of important advice for the care of laminate wood flooring is placing protective pads under the furniture. Also, you should consider placing high-quality floor mats at exits and entrances. The mats can collect dust, oil, sand, asphalt, and grit that can damage the flooring.

It’s also recommended to place mats and rugs in high-traffic areas near kitchen sinks, vanities, and stoves. This will help you reduce the wear-and-tear on your floors.

5. Use ice to clean gum and wax

In order to clean chewing gum or candle wax from laminate flooring, you should harden the spot using ice. Be careful not to let the ice melt too much, which could introduce water to the surface. Next, you should use a plastic scraper to remove them from the floor. Make sure that you don’t scratch the surface when using the scraper. Finally, you should wipe the area clean with a damp cloth.

6. Here’s what to avoid using on your floors

Following the above tips will help keep your flooring looking great for years. Routine maintenance will help you avoid damage to your laminate flooring. When it comes to taking care of the flooring, you should avoid using oil, polish, wax, shine enhancers, detergents and varnish. Also, never use spray mops, power cleaners, or steam cleaners, as they can damage the flooring.

5 tips for choosing tile for your shower remodel

choosing tile for your shower remodelChoosing tile for your shower remodel is no easy task. You might be researching about the tile since you decided to remodel the shower area. Maybe you already have the best tile for the shower remodel you’re looking to start. However, you should not make hasty decisions when it comes to remodeling of the shower.

Many factors should be considered to select the best tile for the shower area. Often the design of the bathroom will dictate the type of tile you choose for the bathroom. Here we have listed some valuable tips that can help you in choosing tile for your shower remodel.

1. Use small-sized tiles on the curves

Smaller tiles look best on the curves. They handle curves better than larger tiles. The angle of the arcs and curves in the shower area can be highlighted using small size tiles. You should install the tiles on the shower bench and other curved areas.

2. Select the right mosaic tile

You should carefully select the mosaic tile for the shower area. Consider selecting a tile that provides at the minimum 95 percent contact from the wall to the tile. Don’t rely on glue on the tile sheet for contact.

3. Install proper tile for the shower bench

A tile slab with radius edge or bullnose will be much comfortable for the shower bench. The tile will feel nicer to sit on and will feel great on the back of the legs. Using a tile with a rough edge can feel hard on the legs.

4. Pick a slip-resistant tile for the floor

For the floor of the shower area, you should select a slip-resistant tile. Stone and porcelain tiles are the best for the shower floor. Avoid glazed ceramic tiles in this spot, as they tend to be slippery. Also, remember that non-vitreous tiles are not suitable for the shower floor. Only impervious or vitreous tiles should be used in the shower area, as they are relatively more waterproof.

5. Select a good wall tile

You should consider adding a second tile on the shower area wall. Any type of tile will look good on the wall. However, the most common tiles include porcelain and ceramic tiles.

You can select either small or large sized tile for the shower area. Small-size tiles are a safer option for the shower area since they are easy to install and do not leave moisture behind the tiles. Furthermore, you should consider natural stone tiles that are resistant to staining and easy to clean. Unlike floor tiles, the benefit of slip-resistant tile does not apply to tiles installed in the walls.

3 Important Things to Know Before Replacing Kitchen Countertops

Replacing Kitchen CountertopsThinking about replacing kitchen countertops in your home? In this blog post, we’ll walk you through three different things you need to know before getting started. Learn more about kitchen remodels from Superior Stone & Cabinet.

Is it time to start replacing kitchen countertops?

The type of countertop that you choose can greatly influence the aesthetic appeal of the kitchen. In addition, it will also determine how much you will be able to save in terms of repair and replacement cost in the long run. So, it is important to plan things carefully when it comes to replacing kitchen countertops.

Your kitchen renovation will remain incomplete without replacing the kitchen countertop. If you are thinking of remodeling the kitchen area, it is important that you select a countertop that meshes perfectly with the rest of the kitchen décor. Here are three important things that you should consider to freshen up the look of your kitchen by installing countertops.

1. Take precise measurements (or have us take them for you!)

Before you head to the store, it is important that you make a sketch that represents the placement of the kitchen countertop. Make sure that you mark off the sections of sink countertops, continuous countertops, and island countertops to be measured separately.

Sounds complicated, right? Don’t worry, we have an easier way of doing this. Superior offers free in-home measurements. Contact us and have one of our design pros come to your home!

2. Know about your options

When it comes to kitchen countertops, you have different options. Popular options include granite and quartz countertops. These natural stone materials look elegant and graceful that can add value and beauty to the kitchen renovation project.

Quartz countertops are generally the least costly option of the three. While these countertops can’t match the executive look and grace of marble and granite countertops, they nonetheless look appealing. If you want maximum cost savings, you should go for quartz countertops. However, if you want to give the most elegant and refined look, it is better to choose a granite countertop.

3. Know about stone quality and stone grades

Natural stone countertops come in different grades. They are generally rated from one to five depending on the defects present on the stone. For instance, grade 5 stone is flawless but costs more than lesser grade stones that may have certain design defects. However, the defects are not visible in most cases and you can gain a better return on investment by selecting a grade 3 or 2 stone countertop.

Why Install Quartz Countertops in the Kitchen?

Kitchen remodeling is one of the most common renovation projects in the United States. Generally, homeowners focus on the flooring, kitchen cabinets, and the countertops. When it comes to countertops, an increasing number of people these days are installing counters made of easy-to-maintain materials—including quartz. Why Install Quartz Countertops in the Kitchen?

Quartz countertops doesn’t just look good. They also offer many benefits as compared to other types of kitchen countertops. Here are some of the important things that you should consider if you are thinking of giving your kitchen a new look by having Superior install quartz countertops.

How are quartz countertops manufactured?

Quartz slabs are made in factories and consists of about 90 percent pure quartz. Similar to granite and marble, quartz is mined. However, they are easily ground down, making shipping much less costly. The quartz in powder form is mixed with pigments and polyester resins under intense pressure and heat.

The pigments give color to the quartz countertops while the resins make them non-porous and durable. In addition, various other materials may be added, such as material flecks or recycled glass to give special characteristics to the quartz countertops.

What are the benefits of choosing quartz?

Quartz countertops are available in a wide variety of design and patterns. They resemble the natural appearance of a stone such as granite and marble, but also provide an engineered look of laminate countertops.

The quartz slabs are relatively cheaper as compared to countertops made of natural stone. While they are more expensive than laminate, they are more rugged and durable, offering greater value on investment. Also, they are easy to install as the long thick slabs can be installed in one piece.

Another benefit of quartz countertops is that the resin used during the manufacturing process makes them non-porous. This makes them resistant to stains and odor-causing bacteria, mildew, and mold infestation. They do not need to be sealed from time to time while remodeling your kitchen.

In addition, being one of the hardest known minerals, quartz is highly durable and resistant to chips, dents, scratch marks, and heat.

What should you consider?

Having said that, you should keep in mind that quartz countertops can crack in case of sudden change in temperature. In order to avoid this outcome, you must always use a ‘hot pad’ or ‘trivet’ under hot utensils when placing them on the countertops made of quartz.

Call Superior to have us install quartz countertops in your kitchen

In conclusion, quartz countertops offer various benefits, as compared to natural stone and laminate countertops. The countertops made of quartz are rugged and durable that offers great value for money. That’s the reason they are increasingly becoming the preferred choice for kitchen remodeling projects.

Three reasons to buy quartz countertops for rental property

If you’re a property manager or you own a rental property, you know that tenant tastes have changed over the years. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to rent out a property with an outdated kitchen or bathroom, and you’ll have to either wait longer for a tenant (costing you money) or lower the rent price (costing you money). It’s time for an upgrade. In this blog post, we’ll discuss three reasons to consider buying quartz countertops for rental property in Phoenix.

Quartz Countertops For Rental PropertyThey are more durable than most granite

As a property manager or rental property owner, you know that tenants and residents can be rough on the interior of the apartment, condo, or house. It might not even be that the tenants are actively trying to damage things, but rather that things break, wear down, or get damaged over time, especially with a regular turnover in residents.

Granite slab countertops are a major investment. They’re perfect for your own home, but they can be a risky buy for rental properties: they require regular upkeep and protection, and they’re not stain resistant. Prefabricated granite is a sounder investment for rentals, as it costs less and is more protected against damage. But, this is an area where quartz really shines. Quartz is made out of quartz crystals covered in a resin mix. The quartz is hard and durable, while the resin adds stain resistance and protects it against scratches. And, unlike granite countertops, quartz doesn’t need regular upkeep.

The only area that quartz doesn’t perform as well as granite in durability is how much heat it can take. Granite countertops are famous for being able to have hot pans put directly on them. Doing this to a quartz countertop, however, could cause discoloration and even cracking. You’ll need to inform your residents that quartz countertops should be treated just like any non-granite countertop when it comes to heat: with a hot pad or trivet placed between the counter and hot pots or pans.

Here’s where all that durability really makes a difference: most quartz countertop manufacturers provide a much more extensive warranty for quartz than for granite. In fact, the manufacturers we work with at Superior offer a 15-year limited warranty. In a rental property, that’s a great value.

They are also less expensive than granite

Slab granite countertops are one of the most expensive options for counters. While owners of granite countertops will tell you that cost makes a big difference, that’s for their own home. For your rental properties, you’ll need a more economical option. Quartz is far less expensive than granite countertops, making it a perfect option for all 150 kitchens in the apartment complex you manage or the one kitchen in the rental property you own.

In an individual home, slab or prefabricated granite countertops can increase home value and the curb appeal of a house. That’s not to say that quartz countertops can’t raise your home’s value. Rather, it’s just that some homebuyers will be picky about the exact kind of countertops they’re getting in the sale.

However, in a rental property context, your renters may not even be able to tell the difference between quartz and granite, especially because there are many quartz designs that mimic the natural stone grain of granite. With quartz, you’re getting a durable, great-looking countertop that attracts tenants without breaking the bank.

Superior has large supplies of quartz

Superior Stone & Cabinet is one of Arizona’s premier countertop, flooring, and cabinet wholesalers, and we sell and install quartz countertops for rental property throughout the Phoenix metro area. As a wholesale direct importer of quartz straight from the manufacturer, we save money by not only cutting out the middleman, but by purchasing our quartz in bulk.

Quartz countertops: Superior partners with LG Hausys

LG is a company best known for making great televisions, refrigerators, and other home appliances. Yet, another little-known side of their business is creating high-quality, beautiful quartz countertops through a subsidiary, LG Hausys. Known as Viatera quartz, there are 50 different colors and textures available to consumers as part of this collection.

Recently, Superior Stone & Cabinet has partnered with LG Hausys to bring our customers even more quartz countertop options. Backed by a 15-year limited warranty, LG countertops are some of the best in the industry, and really set the standard for quartz across the industry. In this blog post, we’ll discuss what quartz is, why we’ve partnered with LG, and how you can learn more about these countertops.

Quartz CountertopsWhat is quartz?

In our previous blog posts, we’ve talked a bit about quartz and the differences between quartz and granite countertops. Quartz countertops are manufactured out of crushed quartz stone and resin; these materials are crushed in a variety of ways that creates different options for the look of the countertop.

In contrast to the natural waves of prefabricated and slab granite, quartz countertops typically have a clean, uniform look to them. Plus, quartz requires less regular upkeep, comes already protected thanks to its manufactured status, and can be very durable while maintaining flexibility. Finally, it’s not porous, unlike granite slabs.

Disadvantages of quartz include the potential for UV light to cause damage or discoloration, as well as the fact that it doesn’t have the glamorous name recognition of “granite” and thus doesn’t increase your property value as much.

However, one of the biggest benefits of quartz countertops is the price point, which typically comes in under that of prefabricated or slab granite. If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen and save money in the process, a quartz countertop from LG Hausys might be right for your home remodeling project. For more on quartz, check out this overview from This Old House.

Why work with LG Hausys?

Unlike many other countertop makers, LG Hausys manufactures its quartz countertops in Adairsville, Georgia. They’re a company with a tradition of excellence, and their quartz counters are built with pride and high quality standards.

Here’s the thing: carrying LG quartz countertops has allowed us to greatly expand our available stock of these kind of countertops, giving us a selection rivaling our prefabricated granite collection and that of other Phoenix wholesalers who deal in quartz. This means more choices for you. Even if you decide not to get a quartz countertop from Superior, isn’t it nice to know that you’ll be seeing everything we have to offer in our store, instead of having to visit several stores to get a feel for different countertop collections?

How can I learn more about quartz countertops?

The best place to get started is by scheduling a free, in-home estimate with us. This is a no-obligation service, but it allows one of our friendly and experienced installers to meet with you to talk about your remodeling plans, and take professional measurements of your kitchen or bathroom space. Even if you don’t end up buying from Superior, having those measurements will save you an important step in your remodel.

Next, come into our showroom to see our collection of LG Hausys quartz countertops. Armed with your space measurements, our team can help you determine exactly what each type of quartz (or granite, if you decide to go in that direction) will cost. From there, if you do decide to buy from us, our professional team can do your countertop installation. Quartz requires professional installers: unlike granite, it’s far too heavy to safely install yourself, and you’ll want an official company to do it.

Unsure about where to start on your quartz countertop project? Give us a call at (602) 437-0088, and our team will walk you through the steps.
