Most Popular Countertops in Hanahan, SC

Choosing the best countertops for your kitchen is an important decision, but it doesn't have to be a hard one. One of the best ways to narrow down your search is to find out what kind of countertop material you'd like to use. While it's true that material and style trends change over time, there are several counters that have always been top sellers.

Some of the most popular countertops we sell include:

Marble Countertops in Hanahan, SC

There's no way around it - marble adds jaw-dropping beauty to just about any room and is known for its good looks. It is a dense stone that comes in many different hues like greens, browns, pinks, greys, whites, and more. While marble countertops often have otherworldly beauty, they can be susceptible to stains and cracks. Marble is also considered one of the most expensive counters to choose from, though the truth is marble comes in a wide range of qualities and prices.

  • Pros: Stunning beauty, plenty of beautiful choices.
  • Cons: Not always used in kitchens due to chance of staining.
  • Popular Colors: Portinari, Shadow Storm, Super White, Lumen, Calacatta Linconni, Nobulato Honned, Shadow, Grey Imperiale Honed.

Granite Countertops in Hanahan, SC

When it comes to popularity, granite countertops take the cake. Granite countertops usually contain a blend of quartz, feldspar, mica, and other minerals. Granite can add an edge of elegance and even a country-chic feel to your kitchen, making it a well-rounded stone. Granite is durable and scratch-resistant, though it can require sealing and DIY chip repair.

  • Pros: Luxurious, rich look featuring natural stone that is durable, heat resistant, and scratch-resistant.
  • Cons: Hard material that may require DIY chip repair and sealing.
  • Popular Colors: Blue Jeans, Creama Pearl, Alure, Galaxy White, Luna Pear, Steel Grey, Ubatuba, Oro Brazil.

Quartz Countertops in Hanahan, SC

Quartz is a manufactured material that represents one of our favorite four-letter words: easy! If you're looking to add a high-end feel to your kitchen or bathroom, quartz is an excellent material to consider. Like granite, quartz countertops can add a decadent vibe to any room. Unlike granite, you may not have to seal quartz quite as often (if ever).

  • Pros: Quartz countertops come in plenty of colors to choose from and are easy to clean. They are also strong, scratch-resistant, and don't require sealing.
  • Cons: Quartz is not as heat resistant as other materials like granite counters. Sharp corners tend to crack, but that can be remedied with rounded corners.
  • Popular Colors: Noble Grey, Raw Concrete, Frosty Carrina, Shitake, Pebble, Pietra Grey, Sierra Madre, Arctic.

Silestone Countertops in Hanahan, SC

A manufactured material made from quartz crystals, Silestone countertops are equal parts gorgeous and practical. Known for being a durable, non-porous choice, Silestone is resistant to stains, scratches, and even some forms of bacteria. Homeowners who choose Silestone do so because they can get a high-end look without having to worry too much about maintenance. Silestone counters look great in many different homes, from contemporary abodes with modern accents to vintage-looking kitchens.

  • Pros: Silestone countertops are non-porous, meaning germs and bacteria can't lodge themselves inside this material. This makes Silestone counters great for kitchens and bathrooms alike. This material also comes in a wide variety of colors and resists scratches and chips. Overall, Silestone is an excellent choice if you want to make a solid long-term investment without much upkeep.
  • Cons: While Silestone is great if you're looking for a low-maintenance counter option, it can be sensitive to harsh chemicals like bleach and ammonia. Silestone is also not recommended for outdoor use since the resins used to make the material do not do well with UV light.
  • Popular Colors: Daria, Gray Expo, Lagoon, Calacatta Gold, Arctic, Blanco City, Gris Expo, Desert Silver

Quartzite Countertops in Hanahan, SC

Not to be confused with quartz countertops, which are manmade, quartzite is a naturally occurring stone that is quarried much in the same way that granite is. If you're a fan of marble counters, quartzite mimics its looks without as much upkeep. Like granite, it is a very durable choice and adds an upscale feeling to almost any room you choose.

  • Pros: Since it doesn't require any special cleaners, quartzite looks great without much maintenance. When it gets dirty, soap and water should be all you need to clean. Quartzite is also a great long-term option since it doesn't wear down quickly at all.
  • Cons: Heat is required to form quartzite. However, you should avoid putting hot pots and pans on your quartzite countertops. Because quartzite comes in many different varieties, some forms of quartzite need to be sealed more often than others.
  • Popular Colors: Maya, Fusion, Locomotion, Callacata, Airy Concrete, Cocada White

 Kitchen Remodeling With Marble Countertops Hanahan, SC

How Will You Use Your Countertops in Hanahan?

The first and perhaps most crucial part of your countertop choice should stem from how you and your family use your countertops. For example, if you have kids, your counters will probably see a lot of activity. Between standard eating times and "in-between" meals that teens are known for, your counters might double as food prep stations. As such, you might need a countertop material that is resistant to most food and beverage stains. If you own a rental property that sees a lot of foot traffic from strangers, you might want to consider an economical material that is also durable.

  • Do you cook a lot?
  • Do you host a lot of parties?
  • How long will you be living in your home?
  • How long will you be living in your home?
Once you figure out exactly how you'll be using your countertops, you can begin to narrow down your choices.

How Much Upkeep Is Too Much?

Be realistic and honest with yourself about this question. Before you fall in love with how a countertop material looks, be sure you understand how much upkeep is needed. Some materials require more care, while others don't need much at all.

Keep these points in mind:
  • Materials like quartz only need to be wiped down occasionally.
  • Materials like granite, marble, and limestone will need to be sealed at least once a year.
  • Some materials may be durable but aren't stain resistant.

The bottom line is this: Assess the maintenance demands that come along with the materials you're looking at. Marble countertops in Hanahan, SC are elegant, but if you'e unwilling to keep them looking their best, why bother buying the material?

You should be aware that most countertop materials will require some form of upkeep, even if it' minimal. To help keep your counters in pristine condition, consider these care and precaution tips:

  • Many common foods contain acids that will dull or even damage the surface of stone countertops.Use coasters to protect your counters, especially if you'e drinking something with citrus juices or alcohol.
  • Do not place scalding hot pots or pans directly on your countertops.
  • Use mats or trivets to place under hot dishes.
  • If you spill liquid on your countertops, blot the spill with a paper towel ASAP. Wiping the spill will cause it to spread.
  • Use mild soap and plain water to clean up stains.

Which Colors and Materials Match Your Home's Aesthetics?

For many homeowners, this question is almost always top-of-mind. After all, you want to choose colors and materials that fit well with other features in your home. When selecting your countertop materials, try to choose a tone that contrasts with your other amenities, like your cabinets. Don't go for a perfect match. As an example, black granite is a beautiful contrast to white cabinets.

Consider these questions when choosing your countertop materials:
  • Are there one or two colors that you love more than others?
  • Does your choice go well with the color of your kitchen's walls?
  • Do you want to switch up your kitchen's style or keep it the same?
  • Will you be painting your kitchen a different color in the future?
  • Will you be replacing your appliances soon?

It was an eventful week for the Hanahan Hawks but it ended about like it should have for the seventh-ranked team in Class AAA against a winless Class AA squad.

The Hawks, now guided by interim coach Steve Blanchard, used some second half theatrics to take out rival Timberland, 30-24, on Sept. 16 in a non-region clash.

Hanahan improved to 3-0 while Timberland fell 0-5.

It was an impressive victory for the Hawks considering the unexpected winds of change that blew earlier in the week. The Berkeley County School District released a statement Sept. 14 saying Blanchard was taking over for third-year coach Art Craig on an interim basis with no further details. It remains unclear what Craig’s status is with the program or whether he will return this season.

The school district said it couldn’t comment on personnel matters.

“This was a great game,” Blanchard said. “We had a lot of stuff going on this week so we knew we had to corral them a little bit. For us to come back like this in the second half is a testament to our coaches’ halftime adjustments. They did an amazing job. I’m so proud of our kids.”

The Hawks found themselves in a battle against the upset-minded Wolves and trailed 16-0 at halftime. The second half belonged to the Hawks, though.

Running back Kevon Rivera’s 8-yard run capped a 43-yard drive with 50 seconds left to put the Hawks ahead, 28-24. A pass on the 2-point conversion to Ashton Drayton was successful. Rivera finished with 77 yards rushing, most coming in the second half.

Hanahan’s defense denied the Wolves on four downs near midfield to secure the victory, which would have marked a successful return to Timberland for Craig, who won two state championships and almost 200 games with the Wolves before taking over Hanahan prior to the 2020 season.

Instead, it goes down as win No. 1 for Blanchard in the 2022 campaign and the first for the Hawks here since 2002. It also snapped a four-game skid in the series, now led by Timberland, 18-8.

“Any time you play a game here you can throw out the records,” Blanchard said. “Timberland is always going to play hard. They’re a county team. We’re a county team. This is just how our games play out.”

Blanchard, a 1984 Berkeley High graduate, was previously head coach at Estill and Andrews high schools and served as an assistant for several programs, including Timberland and Berkeley. He became Hanahan’s defensive coordinator in 2013.

Timberland dominated the first half against the visitors, scoring all of their points in the second quarter to build a 16-0 halftime advantage. Wolves running back Omari Jenkins broke the stalemate on a 7-yard run with 9:37 left in the second quarter but the extra point was blocked.

After the Wolves tackled Rivera in the end zone for a safety with under three minutes left in the first half, Timberland went 45 yards to extend its lead on Jakiri Simmons’ 21-yard burst around the outside with under a minute remaining in the opening half.

The Hawks sprang to life in the third quarter to get back in it.

Following an exchange of punts, the Hawks put together a 55-yard scoring drive to get on the board. Fullback Cooper Smith ran the final eight yards for the touchdown with 5:47 remaining in the period and Rivera added the 2-point run as the Hawks cut their deficit in half, 16-8.

Smith carried 11 times for 52 yards.

Timberland’s first crucial mistake came back to haunt the Wolves moments later. Hanahan jumped on a fumble at the Wolves 15 and turned it into quarterback Jaden Cummings’ 1-yard plunge. Cummings tacked on the 2-point run to even it at 16-16 just over two minutes after the first touchdown.

Hanahan’s defense recorded a quick three-and-out and the Hawks started on their own 26 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Hanahan surgically moved down the field on a go-ahead drive.

Rivera carried it 16 yards to the 1 and Cummings scored from short distance for the second time with 7:38 left in the game. The extra point, though, was no good and the Hawks led, 22-16.

After another exchange of punts, Timberland’s sideline woke up when Jenkins sprinted 66 yards for a tying touchdown with 3:16 remaining. He kept it on the 2-point play right up the middle to put the Wolves ahead, 24-22.

Hanahan wiggled off the hook on its last drive after Rivera returned the kickoff to Timberland’s 43 with 3:04 remaining. The final possession was mostly Rivera running behind his blocking.

“We give Kevon the ball when we have to,” Blanchard said.

The Hawks host Porter-Gaud Sept. 23 and Timberland goes to West Ashley.

Hanahan hands Lucy Beckham first loss

MOUNT PLEASANT — It took the Hanahan High offense more than a half to get going against undefeated Lucy Beckham, and even then there wasn’t much offense to speak of.However, the Hawks made two drives count in the second half, getting their only touchdown and a field goal to win 10-6 at District 2 Stadium on Sept. 9.Hanahan improves to 2-0 on the season, using a dominant run game to wear down the Bengals.“Man, this was a physical football game and I thought both teams played really hard,” Hanahan c...

MOUNT PLEASANT — It took the Hanahan High offense more than a half to get going against undefeated Lucy Beckham, and even then there wasn’t much offense to speak of.

However, the Hawks made two drives count in the second half, getting their only touchdown and a field goal to win 10-6 at District 2 Stadium on Sept. 9.

Hanahan improves to 2-0 on the season, using a dominant run game to wear down the Bengals.

“Man, this was a physical football game and I thought both teams played really hard,” Hanahan coach Art Craig said. “This is what a playoff game is like. Both teams going at it on every play. Every little mistake is crucial.

"I am really proud of this football team. I mean, this was our second game. We are still in the process of putting things together. So this is a great win for us. Lucy Beckham is a very good football team.”

Junior running back Kevon Rivera, a third-year starter and one of the top backs in the Lowcountry, overcame a sluggish start to shoulder the load in the decisive second half. Rivera finished the night with over 100 yards rushing, the bulk coming in the final two quarters of play.

Fairly significant pre-game rain eased up by kickoff, setting the stage for a rather uneventful first half. The lone points of the half came on Jack Weil’s 42-yard field goal, capping Lucy Beckham’s best drive of the opening half.

Hanahan struggled to get any consistent offense going against an aggressive Bengals’ defense. The Hawks ran one offensive play in Lucy Beckham territory, that coming after a Nathaniel Parson interception. On the next play, Hanahan fumbled and Bengals’ linebacker Hank Aeppli recovered.

It took just two plays of the third quarter for the Hawks to enter Lucy Beckham territory. Ashton Drayton and Rivera combined for 27 yards on successive carries to give Hanahan a first down at the Bengals’ 46-yard line.

Rivera ripped off 11 yards on third-and-one to put the Hawks on the Lucy Beckham 26-yard line. Later on the drive, on fourth-and-three from the 19, Rivera gained the first down by inches. Quarterback Jaden Cummings capped the 15-play drive with a one-yard sneak, giving the Hawks a 7-3 lead with 3:57 left in the third quarter.

“That was a huge drive for us because we really needed to come out establish the fact that we were here and we were gonna play,” Craig said. “I went to Kevon and told him we needed more from him. In that second half, he showed why he is one of the best around.”

Weil added a second field goal, a 35-yarder, to close the gap to 7-6 with 10:22 left in the game.

But the Hawks had an answer, a long answer. Hanahan again put together a 15-play drive that ate up nearly eight minutes with Eric Johnson kicking an 18-yard field goal for a 10-6 lead with 2:29 left in the game.

“You know, we played hard tonight but we didn’t play great,” Bengals head coach Jamel Smith said. “Effort was good, Fundamentals, tackling, not so good. Hopefully we learned a lot tonight. Hopefully these kids understand when we talk about tackling, this is what we mean. Good job by Hanahan though. We didn’t slow them much in the second half.”

The Bengals will play at Stall next Friday while Hanahan will go to Timberland in a Berkeley County rivalry. Craig is the former head coach at Timberland.
