Countertops: A Basic Guide to this Popular Kitchen Upgrade

Last updated 2 years ago

Counters are an important part of kitchen renovations, and can be upgraded on any budget. Thanks to a wide variety of choices in materials and quality home design services, you can find the perfect countertop upgrades for the most popular room in your house. This guide can help you learn about material selection and the installation of your new counters:

Custom Fit
All new countertops must be customized to precisely fit the base over your cabinets, which is accomplished by creating templates that are matched to your kitchen. Walls are not always perfectly square along their entire length, therefore, simple measurements will not be accurate enough to cut a stone slab and form it for your countertop.

When you have chosen the type of counter or specific slab you want to use, your designer's staff will create a template, cut the slab to an exact fit, and install your new counter. Edges and seams will be carefully joined while the counter is secured to the surface and backsplash as necessary.

Natural Stone Options
Natural stone is currently one of the most popular choices in countertop materials, offering a timeless and elegant beauty. Granite is a leading choice due to its variation in appearance as well as its durability.  Quartz is becoming increasingly well-liked because it is stronger than granite making it ideal for frequently used kitchens. Marble retains unique and beautiful characteristics that truly set a kitchen apart, while soapstone is a good option for kitchen renovations on tighter budgets. Choosing the perfect natural stone should be a careful process, so set some time aside for visiting your home design supplier and exploring the available slabs.
