What to look for in a new kitchen countertop
So you’ve finally decided that your old worn-out countertop has too many dents or too many stains and you need a fresh new look in your kitchen. But what is next? There are so many countertops on the market with different styles and made of different materials, so how do you choose which one is going to be best for you? Well, here are a few things to help you narrow down your choices and find the perfect countertop for you!
Function – The most important thing that you need to decide first is what kind of use you plan on getting out of your countertop. Do you cook every night, do you have children, do you want something just for visual appeal? How are you going to use your new countertop? It is a good idea to decide the most important aspect of a countertop to you whether it’s durability or resistance to stains or corrosion.
Style and type – Countertops come in many different styles and types. They can be made of a material like granite, porcelain, or quartz and each one comes in hundreds if not thousands of designs. Start to think about your color scheme and what kind of color countertop would be the best fit for you. Quartz and granite are natural rock so they have less variety than man-made porcelain products so doing this simple task should cut your options down.
Budget – Now with what you have left, which of those fit in your budget. Include installation fees since these countertops are way too heavy for you and a couple of friends to install yourself. Keep in mind any additional features like Invisacook or working around a sink may cost extra.
With these tips, finding a new countertop should be easy and fun! Always remember to keep what’s best for you, your family, and your home in mind! Soon you will have a beautiful new countertop that is the right fit for you!
