Success Story: Wilmette Home Receives Beautiful Corian Countertops

April 5, 2012

Seigle’s is extremely well known for our cabinets and we also are currently making a name for ourselves with countertops. “Whether it’s wood, Corian, quartz, or granite, you can count on the Seigles staff to have the knowledge to guide you in the best choice of countertop materials for your kitchen, bath, home office or entertainment areas,” said Stacy Carsello, Seigle’s Design Consultant.

Carsello recently helped to complete a beautiful home in Wilmette for the Thompson family. Here’s what Stacy had to say about the remodel:

“The Thompson kitchen is a good example of how extensive our offerings can be. The client loved Corian’s Witch Hazel for its look of marble and its durability—and we have to agree. Corian’s Witch Hazel is a great alternative to marble. We loved it so much that we put a display  in our Mundelein and Geneva showrooms.  Corian is a versatile product that allows for seamless installation, has long lasting durability, is hygienic, and has unlimited design capabilities.

The Thompson’s also chose to do a butcher block wood top in Black Walnut. Customers may not know that wood cutting boards and countertops actually kill food poisoning bacteria that might otherwise live on a plastic cutting board. A study from the University of Wisconsin on bacteria such as E.Coli and Salmonella t left over night on plastic and wood cutting boards found the bacteria had multiplied on the plastic and virtually could not be found on the wood after only 3 hours. The only maintenance required for wood tops is occasionally oiling them to keep them conditioned. There are numerous edge treatments, patterns, thicknesses, and wood species to chose from.”
