Kitchen countertops are both functional and decorative so thought needs to be put into purchasing the correct countertop for your household. You can begin your search for a new kitchen countertop by asking a few simple questions. These questions include:
- What is my budget?
- What color should I add to my kitchen?
- What will the countertop need to withstand?
By answering these questions, you can begin to form an idea of your needs and desires, and begin the search of the many options available to you.
The number one deciding factor is cost when deciding on the material to choose for your countertops. Laminate countertops is the most cost effective package possible with many designs and patterns available. Top grade materials which fetch higher prices include granite, marble, and quartz. These higher-end, durable countertops maintain their natural beauty and robustness straight from the mines.
Some homeowners seek the resilience and magnificence of granite countertops without the bright sheen. Honed granite is a matted version which is very subtle – great for kitchens with low light and bright wall finishes. Also, honed granite is perfect for toning down a busy kitchen full of other eclectic materials.
