You have been thinking about your dream home and kitchen for months, and now the time is finally here to choose your countertops! Since the kitchen is such an important place in any home, this decision is key. As you make the selection for your perfect countertops, there are a few things that you should take into consideration to ensure that your kitchen works best for you.
Look & Texture
One of the first things you should consider for your new countertops are the look and texture of the material – after all, you will be seeing it every day! For example, two of the most popular countertop surfaces are quartz and granite. While quartz has a unique surface that can be polished or kept matte, granite has a seamless look that comes in a variety of colours. Depending on your taste, the material may vary greatly.
Another thing you should be looking for is a countertop that can withstand daily use and last a long time. Whether it be spills, scratches, or burns, a lot of things can happen in a kitchen, and you want a quality countertop that will last. One way to help you decide is to ask your custom home builder for samples that you can take home and test in your own kitchen.
Last but not least, your custom countertop should be within your budget! You can still find a great countertop with a lower budget, especially since materials such as granite can vary in cost depending on colour, finish, and place of origin. When selecting your countertop budget, always go with the option that will add the most value to your home and your quality of life.
The best way to choose your new custom home countertops is by asking your custom home builder to show you multiple material samples such as ceramic, stone, concrete, laminate, and wood. This way, you can compare materials and find a countertop that is durable, functional, and stylish.
