Kitchens a great place for family bonding

Engineered stone countertops can be a key ingredient in your family’s cooking adventures

If your family is like many around Western Washington, you spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing or eating meals, or simply hanging out and relaxing.

Cooking can be a family experience that brings people together and those times are more enjoyable when you’ve got the right tools for the job. Your countertops are an important part of that toolkit, says Julie Zyph, who had her counters, backsplashes and sink replaced in her Everett home about seven years ago by Granite Transformations of North Seattle.

Holiday meals a family affair

With 12 or more people expected to sit down for a family meal for Thanksgiving, Zyph expects her kitchen to be a busy place. “My kitchen is relatively small, but it’s amazing what I can do with it,” she says.

She appreciates her engineered stone countertops for their durability and resistance to heat, scratches and stains. “It gives you so much more working space when you can take a hot pan out of the oven and put it down on the counter. Especially during the holidays, a lot of times you have limited space.”

Young cooks give counters a good workout

Zyph’s eight-year-old granddaughter helps her out with baking. “She loves to help me with everything in the kitchen, but lately I’ve been teaching her how to make pie crust and rolling it out, showing her how to flip it and how it goes in the pan,” Zyph says. “She loves it!”

Having little hands working with pans, rolling pins and other hard items – not to mention younger grandkids climbing up to help out – might mark up laminate counters, but Zyph says her stone counters are holding up extremely well. “They’re great, they look exactly like they did when they were first put in,” she says.

New counters a great investment

No matter what stage of life you’re in with your home, long-lasting and durable countertops can add value to your property, says April Peterson with Granite Transformations.

“The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home and there are great benefits to having countertops that work for all ages and stages of life,” she says. Not only do they provide ideal, user-friendly working surfaces today, they’re a good long-term investment that adds appeal and value to your home if and when you choose to sell.

Save money by booking now

Granite Transformations is scheduling consultations into December, and there’s benefits to doing so, Peterson says. Customers who book a kitchen conversion before the end of the year lock in 2019 prices. And if you’re looking at replacing your sink, you could receive a free Blanco sink worth up to $650. Ask your GT consultant for details!
