Most Popular Countertops in Holly Hill, 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 Holly Hill, 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 Holly Hill, 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 Holly Hill, 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 Holly Hill, 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 Holly Hill, 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

How Will You Use Your Countertops in Holly Hill?

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 Holly Hill, 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?

The Orangeburg County Office of Emergency Services says the eastern part of the county was hardest hit due to low lines and residents are left picking up the pieces.

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. — It’s the calm after the storm in Holly Hill following Ian. According to the Orangeburg County Office of Emergency Services, the eastern part of the county was hardest hit due to lowlines and residents are left picking up the pieces.

“I think we’re blessed and just glad everyone’s okay and our house is okay, yeah,” said Holly Hill resident Karsyn Smoak.

Downed trees all over Holly Hill were caused by heavy rain and strong winds. Residents say they’re grateful for their family’s safety.

“I’m just concerned for all the people that are, you know, might have a bunch of trees like big trees, or like, maybe hit their house or something, just concerned about that,” said resident Dylan Rivera.

One tree fell outside a Holly Hill home and split into pieces, becoming tangled in power lines. Tommy Burks has lived in the home for sixteen years and experienced six hurricanes.

“We had a tornado that come right over the house in the past and it took the top out of the tree so we had some bad weather around here,” said Burks.

A fallen tree from Ian blocking his driveway.

“My sister came over to stay with us and she was gonna park her car on the driveway right there and we decided to move it to the front of the house and I’m glad we did because it would’ve got crushed if she would’ve had it sitting there so,” he said.

Residents are now left counting their blessings.

“It definitely could’ve been a lot worse and just thinking about the people in Florida and what they’re going through,” said Smoak.

“Pray for Florida,” said resident Jackson Buck.

Crews are working to restore power to the homes affected throughout the county.

Congregation gathers less than a week after strong winds topple tree in front of church

A tree stump still sits in front of a church in Holly Hill, the scene of a huge downed tree during storm winds. On Sunday church members gather to give thanks.

HOLLY HILL, S.C. — When a large tree fell in front of the Holly Hill Methodist Church during strong winds, the Rev. John Elmore wasn't sure if Sunday's church service would go on; however, with the community's help, the church is fully functional and giving back to others.

A song of praise and thanksgiving was sung inside Holly Hill United Methodist Church on Sunday. The view is a stark difference from the one on Thursday after Tropical Storm Idalia ripped through the area. Elmore said he was cleaning up some flooding inside the church when his week changed instantly.

"My wife actually heard something. She said, 'What was that?' I said, 'I don't know, come on, let's move some chairs.' When we walked outside, the mayor and city workers were here and the tree was laying across the street," Elmore said. "We got it to where they could use a tractor, and of course, they pushed it and blocked about two-thirds of the front of the church."

A News19 crew was in Holly Hill Thursday to see the tree completely turned over in the street, with church members using chainsaws to break it down.

On Sunday, no tree remained in front of the church, and the road was open to normal traffic. The Rev. Elmore said the trials of the storm were a key part of the message of his sermon.

"Some of the illustrations that we used in the sermon were tied to the tree and tied to the storm because we all had lived it," he said. "And so, we can speak into that reality of the scriptures and how they relate to us."

A small crowd gathered inside for the church on Sunday. According to Elmore, many helped get the church operating that day. He said that, in the coming week, his church will have the opportunity to help others in worse situations through the Methodist church's emergency response team.

"We have 10 to 12 trailers that are fully stocked to do tarping, muck-outs from flooding homes, [and] tree removal equipment," he said. "We've received an invitation to go to Ray City, Georgia."

Elmore said he's seen God work through people locally and nationally during the storm, giving more opportunities to spread the gospel.

"It's always people trying to help us in the time of storms, and we should always be willing to be that," he said. "Because when we do, people get to see our love for other people, and I think the scripture is always about loving other people."

Former ‘ringleader’ of international turtle smuggling ring arrested in Bibb County on animal cruelty charges

Steven Baker of South Carolina had pleaded guilty to smuggling turtles between the U.S. and China back in 2019. Now, he’s charged with cruelty to animals in Bibb.

MACON, Ga. — A South Carolina man is in the Bibb County Jail on 15 counts of aggravated cruelty to animal charges. But his history with animals prior to his case is a checkered one.

Steven Verren Baker, of Holly Hill, S.C., was booked into the Bibb County Jail on Tuesday, jail records show.

But according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for South Carolina, Baker was previously convicted of being the "ringleader" of an international turtle smuggling ring.

In Baker's most recent entanglement with the law, Bibb County deputies were out in east Bibb responding to a call about an abandoned dog.

While in the 1100 block of Sunnydale Drive, the deputy was speaking to a resident when they noticed several turtles in a basin. According to the incident report, the deputy said the turtles were held in poor conditions.

"I asked her about the turtles because the environment was deplorable and the turtles appeared in poor health," the incident report said. "She said they belong to her son, Steven Baker, who left them with her about a month ago along with two dogs."

They also said that the basin was within "a pile of trash next to the driveway," the incident report said.

Baker's mother told deputies that she tried to get Baker to pick up the turtles, but he didn't come. She signed a surrender statement and the 15 turtles were taken by the sheriff.

There were 11 albino red-eared sliders, one brown-red-eared slider, two pink belly side necks and one Chinese Golden Thread, which the incident report noted is an endangered species.

After seeing the veterinarian, the doctor reported that the turtles were suffering from long-term malnutrition, bacteria infections, sepsis, shell deformities and fungal infections, they said. The conditions also led to blindness for some of the turtles.

But back in 2019, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Baker’s native South Carolina sent Baker away to 2.25 years in federal prison on conspiracy to smuggle wildlife charges after he pleaded guilty.

He was required to hand over $263,225 in funds from the wildlife trade.

Between January and June of 2016, they said Baker got his hands on turtles – which were protected under international agreements – and sent them “back and forth” from China to the U.S.

They said he got the turtles from Hong Kong and would distribute them here in the U.S.

The illicit animal dealings were set up using Facebook Messenger and the shipments of turtles were sent worldwide through the United States Postal Service.

The Bibb County Sheriff's Office said that the case is still under investigation. The incident report recommended additional charges against one other person as well.

Currently, Baker is being held in the Bibb County Jail on a $8,250 bond.

Shop manager on Old State Road in Holly Hill says he and others are still seeing flooding, mold and financial loss.

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. — Hurricane Idalia may seem like old news by now, but some Orangeburg County residents are still struggling with the damage it left behind.

Shawn Olsen is the manager of the Majestic Pineapple, a shop on Old State Road in Holly Hill. He says they’re still recovering from the physical and financial effects of Hurricane Idalia.

“When the storm was over, lo and behold, I came and I had a mini flood that then damaged a lot of property,” Olsen said.

He says they lost between $3,000 and $4,000 in inventory. Now, the shop is having issues with flooding and mold that they didn’t have before.

“It just comes in now,” Olsen said. “Now it- it comes in through the walls.”

Olsen says other businesses in Holly Hill are in similar situations.

For other Holly Hill residents, evidence of Hurricane Idalia is just about gone.

“In general in town, we are pretty much back to normal,” said John Elmore. “A little bit of debris here.”

Reverand John Elmore is the pastor at a church where a large tree fell during the storm. He says the clean-up and repairs throughout the town were ‘seamless’.

“Even in the midst of the storm, when the tree fell here at the church, our city workers and the mayor responded great and I ended up being out there with them,” Elmore said.

The director of Orangeburg County’s Office of Emergency Services, Billy Staley, says they encourage residents to report damage.

“The county is still doing damage assessment as we get damage reported,” Staley said. “After the storm the county went and combed the areas looking for damage from the storm and our flood prone areas. We had several homes that had low levels of water in them but that were impacted.”

He says the damage is not severe enough to access FEMA resources.

“We don't meet those thresholds,” Staley said. “But we are trying to connect with our partners, our volunteer organizations to help those families who may need help, who had damage to their structures.”

HOLLY HILL, S.C. (WIS) - As the family of an Orangeburg County woman who went missing four months ago seeks answers, the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is releasing new information about the case.

Melissa Aguilar of Holly Hill was reported missing by an ex-boyfriend on Aug. 18, an Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office report states.

Deputies said Friday in a statement that it put out a public call for leads after an “unconfirmed report of a possible sighting.”

Investigators believe she left a home on Fourwind Road, which is in an unincorporated area of Orangeburg County, after an argument with her ex.

Aguilar’s youngest daughter, Shanna Brown, said the last four months have been excruciatingly painful. Brown said she used to speak with her mother every day and the fear of the unknown has caused her “anger, heartache, and worry.”

“It’s been really hard trying to juggle a job and put on a smile and act like nothing’s wrong when there’s so much wrong,” she said.

Brown described her last conversation with her mother on Aug. 17, the night before she was reported missing. She said Aguilar sounded upbeat and happy during that call. She was excited about her oldest daughter’s upcoming wedding in September, and the pair discussed Brown’s future wedding plans as well, Brown said.

Immediately following her disappearance, the sheriff’s office shared the information with the local newspaper, but did not put out a public release through its official channels, nor send the information to other news outlets, WIS-TV reported.

The Sheriff’s Office provided written answers to some questions Friday, but an investigator familiar with the case was not made available for an on-camera interview.

The agency did not provide any specifics about who reported the “unconfirmed report of a possible sighting” or when or where the sighting happened.

Family members, however, say they fear Aguilar is gone.

“She would’ve come back by now, or at least called somebody,” Brown said.

Sarah Shipman, Aguilar’s sister, agrees and said she does not believe that her sibling would vanish without her belongings, and miss important family events.

There was a law enforcement presence at Aguilar’s last-known location, the place she was staying with her ex-boyfriend on Fourwind Road, throughout the morning on Friday.

The sheriff’s office said they could not provide details out of concern that doing so could “jeopardize the case.”

“I wish that they would’ve done a lot more than what they did in the beginning,” Brown said.

Brown implored the community to come forward with information, regardless of how inconsequential it may seem.

“If they see anything, they think they see anything, if they hear anything, that we just want to know, we just want to get an idea, a lead, anything so we could bring her home, alive or not,” she said.

The sheriff’s office declined to answer questions about whether there is a suspect or person of interest in the case, saying they “cannot comment on particulars of an investigation.”

The public is asked to contact the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office with tips, leads or information, at 803-534-3550.
