If you’re remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, whether in full or in part, one of the first places to start is with your countertops. Installing new countertops can give any room an instant facelift, adding to the aesthetic and providing the space you need for proper food preparation, cooking, and even eating. Integrating your countertops into a kitchen island design can offer even more space for activities.
At Bath, Kitchen and Tile Center, we design and install custom countertops for homes throughout Towson, Maryland. We know that when you’re installing new countertops in your kitchen or bathroom, the number of options available can be daunting. Not only do you have to worry about the style you’re trying to achieve, but you also have to consider what you are going to be using your new countertops for. The material you select may be great for a guest bathroom, but awful for a kitchen island in terms of maintenance and care.
We can help you narrow down your options and expertly implement them into any room design to achieve all your goals. Visit our nearby showroom or contact us for more information on custom countertop installation in the Towson, MD area!

DuPont Corian® and solid surface countertops are built from solid acrylic you can mold into any size and shape. Because it’s a solid surface, damages can be repaired easily. Scratches can be buffed out by hand, cigarette burns can be sanded away, and severe damage can be repaired almost every time. The solid plastic surface is nonporous and makes the material resistant to food and liquid stains. Better yet, the surface will inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and germs.
