After renovating your kitchen with beautiful granite or quartz countertops, you may discover how cold the surface feels to lean on every morning. This is a common complaint from many owners of stone countertops and it can be a major disappointment after spending thousands of dollars on a full kitchen renovation.
Luckily, heated countertops are a luxury that can be added even after your countertops have been installed. The best part? You can add them yourself without hiring outside help.
A stick-on heating mat, designed specifically for stone countertops, applies directly under your countertop overhang, heating the area where you most frequently sit. The rest of your countertops can remain cold which is ideal for cooking or for setting your cold beverages.
The ultra-thin mat (less than 25 thousandths of an inch thick) can be designed to perfectly fit the shape and size of your current countertop, including corbels and curves. Simply plug the mat into a standard outlet inside your cabinet and you’ll be enjoying heated countertops all year long!
