Choosing the Best Countertops for your Kitchen Renovation
An important element of the kitchen with regard to functionality and design are countertops. The spotlight is directed to it; especially they are most placed at the center of the kitchen. Although it sets the tone of the kitchen design, kitchen countertops also bear the weight of all the action, so it should be functional as well. It is quite tempting to choose your kitchen countertop based on its beauty alone, but other factors should be considered before you make decisions for your countertop; the durability of material, the ease of maintenance, and finally cost – these are all some of the other dynamics to be considered when choosing countertops for your kitchen remodeling project, or even when building a new kitchen for your new house.
During the selection process of the materials to be used for your countertops, your contractor for your kitchen remodeling project will be dependent on your preferences for design and how will your countertops will usually be used. Some homeowners choose materials that will relatively remain unchanged and stand the test of time, while others want materials that are up to date and trendy. Preferably this guide in choosing countertops for your kitchen will help you with the big decision in-front of you.
Choose Countertops Based on your Lifestyle – A good thing to consider when choosing countertops for your kitchen is way you live. If you have little kids, your countertops will surely be spilled on by different elements quite often, and the best material choice for that is granite. Light colored countertops may end up stained after a short period of time with little kids around.
Choose the Best Materials – When homeowners hear the word countertops, the first thing that comes to mind is granite. There is a reason behind this – granites are spectacular to look at, durable, and it is always trendy (no need worry if your kitchen will become outdated). Although granite is a common choice, there are other materials you can choose from, some of which have become popular at the moment. Other material options are marble (also a classic choice), laminate, butcher block, quartz, stainless steel, and solid surface. Ask the company you will choose for your kitchen remodeling project for more information on the material choices and samples.
Set your Budget – After knowing what you need based on your lifestyle, design, and materials, you should set a budget for your countertops, and as much as possible remain with it. In case your contractor advises you of an incorrect budget for the design and material of your choice, ask for an explanation for this, because it usually happens. Homeowners set a budget for the new kitchen they want and be surprised of the cost. The professionals can help you with this detail, but to avoid surprises, do your research on the cost even before meeting with a probable contractor for your project.
On a closing note, realize that the decision of choosing countertops is one that should be done carefully, because it will cost you money and you would want countertops that have timeless appeal.
