When it comes to the remodeling of your kitchen or bath, nothing is more visually important than your countertops. Seeing its importance in kitchen renovation, it matters a lot what material, finish, and design you choose for your countertop. The countertop is an essential component of the kitchen. It is where all the action takes place. In the current COVID world, homeowners are looking for a bit more character in their countertops. The focus and attention of today’s homeowners is towards durability, safety, and hygienic countertop surfaces with ease of cleaning and maintenance.

If the kitchen is the epicenter of the home, then countertops are the epicenter of the kitchen. It is where almost every kitchen activity begins and ends. Because countertops are one of the first things you see when you enter a kitchen, they naturally serve as a focal point. Investing in high-quality, high-performing, statement-making countertops makes a lot of sense. Not only are countertops relied upon for meal preparation, but they are also used for cooking, eating, entertaining, doing homework, charging electronics, reading, relaxing, and spending quality family time together. Countertops serve practical and aesthetic functions that can make or break a new kitchen.

The exquisite range of granite, quartz, and laminate countertops from Express Kitchens combines beauty with outstanding performance, enabling the customers to bring their design imagination to life. Express Kitchens meet standards of excellence from the initial procurement of raw materials to the final quality control check. The highly skilled and trained staff ensures the quality of a product is delivered to you in the shortest possible turnaround time that is unrivaled in the industry today.

Redefining Elegance of Quartz Countertops With Express Kitchens

Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, Quartz Countertops are arguably the most durable option for modern-day kitchens. Quartz is one of the major engineered stones made from crystalline silica and is the strongest, durable, and non-porous material which is used for constructing kitchen cabinetry as it can lever more pressure with longevity. In addition to this, Quartz survives a gauntlet of spills, hot pots, knives, and more with top scores, and it does not have to be sealed for stain protection. It is waterproof so it can be paired with an under-mounted sink.

The biggest advantage of Quartz is its range of the most eye-catching colors, patterns, and finishing techniques that enhance the look and feel of the kitchen. Quartz countertops are a low maintenance product due to their high density and low porosity. Owners of a quartz countertop do not have to worry about food contamination or staining with a high-quality quartz countertop.

Express Kitchens offers the most comprehensive and vibrant range of quartz colors. The vast colorful range of quartz counters from Express Kitchens offers the most reliable options and is a perfect balance of durability and comfort that adds the touch of glamor to your kitchen. The Star Quartz range of countertops from Express Kitchens includes First Snow, Gray Crystalline, Stratus Cloud, Volcanic Ash, Worn Concrete, Pietra Grigio, Carrara Haze, Carrara Argento, Coastal Storm, Golden Persia, Irish Mist, Bianco Statuario, Glacial Erosion, Ice Sheet, and Bianco Desert.

Granite Countertops – Hallmark of Marvelous Kitchens

All-natural stone – Granite – on an average contains 72% crystalline silica by weight, making it another durable stone for constructing countertops. If you want the unmatched quality and style of naturally formed stone, then nothing beats granite.

Granite countertops are the number one choice for countertops and with good reason. It adds elegance to a kitchen and will more than pay for itself by the time you decide to sell your home. While granite may seem expensive compared to other options, it can be one of the best investments you, as a homeowner can make. If you take the durability and longevity into account, this truly becomes one of the more affordable home improvement options. It is a practical and attractive solution for kitchen cabinets and one that buyers look for when purchasing their next home.

During interactions with our customers, we ask, “What made you finally decide to renovate your kitchen?” The most common answer is “My current kitchen just doesn’t work for ME!”. While many may assume customers are replacing completely broken or out of date kitchens, oftentimes the current kitchen itself does not meet the homeowners’ needs of storage space, function, and organization.

Personalizing a kitchen by including features that make living in the space simple, easy, and efficient goes to the heart of why homeowners choose to remodel. Out of all the gadgets and new, trendy cabinet accessories out there, roll out trays are the most requested add-on.


Why Roll Out Trays?

Roll-out trays are extremely useful in kitchen cabinets. Most kitchen base cabinets are outfitted with shelves as a standard option. Many homeowners are used to having to crawl on their hands and knees to look for something located far in the back of a cabinet. Roll Out Trays eliminate this painful experience by having the items accessible by simply rolling out the tray from the cabinet. Now things that were often out of reach or simply forgotten are no longer an issue.

Roll-out trays are all about getting you to your stored items faster and more conveniently. Not only will it be easier to get at your goods, but you’ll see what’s behind the front row! Getting things out of the deep storage of your kitchen becomes very easy. You can even include roll out trays in your tall pantry cabinets for an incredible amount of storage for your bulk pantry staples.

Why Roll Out Trays from Express Kitchens?

Keeping your kitchen clean, organized and presentable is easy with an Express Kitchen.  ALL of our current In-stock Star Cabinets at Express Kitchens now include Factory-Installed Roll-Out Trays. Every other cabinet manufacturer will charge EXTRA for the convenience of Roll-Out Trays.  At Express Kitchens, we include one factory-installed Roll-Out Tray in every base cabinet at NO ADDITIONAL COST.  Also, for a limited time, if our customers want to add a second roll-out tray, it’s available at a 50% discount!

Star Cabinets feature soft closing drawers and doors and a plywood box construction that withstand the test of time. All-plywood Star Cabinets with built-in pull out trays offer:

  • Unique Styling with multitude of colors & material combination

  • Superior Versatility with cabinet depths, widths, and heights to fit your home

  • Select from the widest range of kitchen cabinets and door styles

  • Strong Construction – built for durability and strength

  • Choose from fresh, on-trend, yet timeless colors and doors styles

These cabinets are a gorgeous addition to any home. Your Star Cabinets now include 1 roll-out tray per base or pantry cabinet at NO EXTRA COST. Get 50% OFF on each additional roll out tray. Express Kitchens offers a free design of star cabinets based on your kitchen size and layout.
