Space to work and work space that’s easy to keep clean is key for today’s families

Can the right kitchen make life easier for busy families? Definitely!

As the kids prepare to head back to school – not to mention back to football, hockey, dance, music and any number of other extracurricular activities – family life quickly loses the relaxed pattern summer allows.

Instead, it’s a time for prepping breakfast, snacks and lunches for the day – or week! – ahead, brainstorming family dinners that are at once yummy, nutritious and adaptable for those busy nights, and finding time to oversee homework sessions – sometimes all at the same time.

So, how do you maximize your kitchen space for the season?

  • Function – First, think about how your family uses the space. Do you have a counter that accommodates casual dining – a place where the kids can have breakfast or enjoy a snack and tell you about their day? A place that also does double-duty as craft or homework station while you prepare dinner?
  • Easy to clean – Now, what kind of surface makes sense for all that work? While porous surfaces can trap dirt, grime, and germs, when you have kids, counters that are easy to clean – and keep clean – are essential! For daily cleaning, just use dish soap and water, ammonia free glass cleaner, or your favorite non-abrasive cleaning wipe. For tougher, stuck on messes, use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, or scrape it off with a razor blade – it will not damage the counters! Granite Transformations countertops are non-porous and mildew, mold, heat, scratch and stain resistant.
  • Germ protection – With their exclusive partnership with Microban, Granite Transformations’ etherium by E-Stone surfaces are also the only engineered stone products with built-in antimicrobial technology from Microban – protection that lasts for the lifetime of your counters and that’s essential as back-to-school germs abound!
  • Eco-friendly – With environmental concerns also weighing heavily on many families, choosing an eco-friendly surface also makes sense. With a wide range of top-quality quartz, granite, recycled glass and mosaic tile surfaces, and using recycled materials in most of the products, Granite Transformations is also the eco-friendly home renovation option – without sacrificing quality or beauty.

Better yet, there’s no demolition required! Instead of the waste that comes when you replace counters and cabinets, why not choose an option that drops smoothly and easily over top of your existing counters. And if freshened up cabinetry or a new backsplash is also part of the dream, the Granite Transformations team can look after that, too,
