Is it time to start replacing kitchen countertops?
The type of countertop that you choose can greatly influence the aesthetic appeal of the kitchen. In addition, it will also determine how much you will be able to save in terms of repair and replacement cost in the long run. So, it is important to plan things carefully when it comes to replacing kitchen countertops.
Your kitchen renovation will remain incomplete without replacing the kitchen countertop. If you are thinking of remodeling the kitchen area, it is important that you select a countertop that meshes perfectly with the rest of the kitchen décor. Here are three important things that you should consider to freshen up the look of your kitchen by installing countertops.
1. Take precise measurements (or have us take them for you!)
Before you head to the store, it is important that you make a sketch that represents the placement of the kitchen countertop. Make sure that you mark off the sections of sink countertops, continuous countertops, and island countertops to be measured separately.
Sounds complicated, right? Don’t worry, we have an easier way of doing this. Superior offers free in-home measurements. Contact us and have one of our design pros come to your home!
2. Know about your options
When it comes to kitchen countertops, you have different options. Popular options include granite and quartz countertops. These natural stone materials look elegant and graceful that can add value and beauty to the kitchen renovation project.
Quartz countertops are generally the least costly option of the three. While these countertops can’t match the executive look and grace of marble and granite countertops, they nonetheless look appealing. If you want maximum cost savings, you should go for quartz countertops. However, if you want to give the most elegant and refined look, it is better to choose a granite countertop.
3. Know about stone quality and stone grades
Natural stone countertops come in different grades. They are generally rated from one to five depending on the defects present on the stone. For instance, grade 5 stone is flawless but costs more than lesser grade stones that may have certain design defects. However, the defects are not visible in most cases and you can gain a better return on investment by selecting a grade 3 or 2 stone countertop.
