How To Choose Your New Kitchen Countertops

If it’s time for some kitchen remodeling, you can change the mood and set the tone in that room by installing new countertops. When choosing the materials, consider the look you want to achieve and choose one that reflects your style. You should also consider materials that are in line with the way in which you use your kitchen. Selecting the ideal countertop for your kitchen can be challenging and somewhat frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are some helpful tips that could simplify the decision-making process.

Consider the different materials – granite is one of the more popular choices because of the variety of shades that are available. It is basically available in a matte or polished finish and the cost is determined by the color and finish as well as where the granite originated. Other materials include ceramic tile, engineered stone, laminates, soapstone, and stainless steel.

Different edges are available – although the standard is a squared edge, there are more decorative ones available such as bevel, bullnose, egg, and ogee. Edge availability is usually based on the material the countertop is manufactured from.

Don’t choose your kitchen countertop based on looks – although it is very tempting to choose a countertop that is more appealing, the care, cost, and durability of it are just as important. So start by finding a good fit.

You can always mix and match materials – if you choosing one material is just too tedious and difficult, you might want to consider mixing and matching them. For instance, if there is an island in your kitchen, consider using a different material on it versus the rest in order make this part stand out.

If you are considering having your kitchen countertops redone by professional contractors the installation of them is the most crucial factor. This has a lot to do with their appearance and how well they will perform for you over the years. Furthermore, those countertops are the first thing that everyone notices when they walk into your kitchen for the first time. If the installation was substandard, your kitchen will look substandard as well.
