    The Advantages of Granite Countertops

    Last updated 1 day 22 hours ago

    Whether you’re designing a brand new kitchen or remodeling an old one, one of the most important decisions you’ll make includes your countertops. Granite is an excellent material for countertops and carries a number of unique advantages.

    Granite is incredibly durable and can withstand high heat—no worries if you put a hot pan down without a hot pad. It’s also very sanitary as it doesn’t hold bacteria, and the clean, natural appearance goes well in most kitchens. It won’t fade over time, but it can stain if it’s not properly sealed, so make sure you learn all about good granite care and maintenance.

    At Sincere Home Décor, we carry a large selection of quality granite countertops that will look amazing in your kitchen. Stop by our Bay area location today to browse our selection, check us out online, or call (510) 992-6593 for more information.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Unique Ideas for Your Kitchen Backsplash

    Last updated 6 days ago

    From tile to granite to metal, you have a great many choices when it comes to kitchen backsplash materials. Remodeling your backsplash should be a reflection of you who are, but it should also be functional and easy to clean. Here are a few clever and unique ideas to get your imagination going to create your perfect backsplash:

    Contoured Tiles—Tiles that are raised and rounded can create quite a unique look in your kitchen. If you were to stand one of these types of tiles on its back, it would look like a half moon. When placed into a backsplash and arranged just right, it can create a basket-weave appearance or a look similar to rows of ribbon across your wall.

    Granite with a Twist—Granite is always elegant and durable, but just a plain slab can get a little boring after a while. For a granite backsplash that is truly eye-catching, consider creating a bit of interest with a few glass mosaic tiles arranged in a geometric pattern, or simply interspersed a wide but regular intervals. You could also use ornate bronze tiles for a more sophisticated look. You could make it functional by choosing inserts that incorporate some type of hook to hang your cooking utensils on.

    Textured Stainless—Stainless steel is durable, easy to clean, and bright, but it can also create a rather institutional look when it’s just a long, plain sheet. A stainless steel backsplash etched with a whimsical design or textured with a small pattern can create just the right amount of visual interest in your kitchen, and is a simple and relatively inexpensive remodeling project you can complete in less than a day.

    How to Get Your Kitchen Ready for the Holidays

    Last updated 14 days ago

    As the holidays approach, millions of people across the country begin preparing for the cheer of baking and cooking. Having your kitchen ready for the increase in activity can go a long way toward improving the efficiency of the experience, making it even more enjoyable. Holiday kitchen home décor should be both functional and attractive; practical, yet cozy. Here are a few tips:

    Maximize work space. If you have the time and budget for a small remodeling project, consider modifying your cabinets and countertops to work harder for you. A pull-out spice rack between your oven and cabinets makes a lot of use of dead space while also putting cooking essentials at a convenient location. A drawer transformed into a pull-out cutting board increases functional work surface without taking up extra room. A food prep station on wheels that can nestle under an open island can nearly double your work space while preserving your floor space when not in use.

    Make tools easily accessible. When you’re looking at bulk food preparation, the key to efficiency is having everything you need at your fingertips. A magnetic strip across a tile backsplash is a perfect solution for knives, while a series of S-hooks along the wall makes quick and convenient storage for measuring spoons. Add drawer dividers to keep serving and mixing spoons neat, organized, and accessible.

    Put dead space to use. If you’re preparing baked items for gifts or bulk cooking for a crowd, you’ve got to keep up with what you need versus what’s done. Consider painting the open end of a cabinet with chalkboard paint, and use that space to make lists of ingredients you need, how much you need to prepare, and anything else that you’d normally be trying to keep track of in your head or on a paper list.

    If you think remodeling is in order to minimize holiday kitchen stress this year, or if you simply want to improve your home décor in the Bay area, come see us at Sincere Home Décor. Check out our website or call (510) 992-6593.
