Is it time for some improvements to your kitchen countertops? Whether that is upgrading your existing ones, creating an entirely new layout, or moving into a new home, there are so many options available in kitchen countertops that it can seem overwhelming. After all, countertops are the foundation of any kitchen – the centerpiece of the busiest and most utilized space in your home.
So where do you begin? The basics of kitchen countertops are simple. The ideal kitchen has three basic properties: fiscal value, functionality and aesthetic harmony.
- Aesthetic Harmony: Regardless of your style, whether that is coastal, Mediterranean or French country, modern and sleek or old world, your kitchen countertops should mirror that style. One advantage to granite in particular is its natural ability to fit any kitchen design, while marble and quartz invoke a more contemporary aura. If you perhaps wanted to add more character to your kitchen, you could even consider using two different countertop surfaces to create more dimension and color!
- Fiscal Value: Everyone loves to dream big, even if that dream is bigger than your dream kitchen’s budget. However, you won’t have to settle for anything less because suppliers and installers of quality kitchen countertops will gladly introduce you to a number of great options that can fit your budget and still add to the value of your home.
- Functionality: The kitchen countertops in your home should be able to withstand the daily activities of a kitchen while still holding onto their beauty. The flow of a kitchen rests upon a functioning countertop. Whether you are a cooking genius or just a beginner, you’ll love the sturdy, and splendid granite, superb quartz, or the stunning and smooth marble that are all heat-resistant, easy to clean and hygienic.
