Questions to Consider When Choosing a New Countertop

When it comes time to choose new countertops for your kitchen and bathroom, there are a few important things to consider. Beyond the look you want for your countertops, you need to examine the use you have for them. The kitchen and bathroom countertops are two of the most frequently used and hardworking elements of your home. These spaces will see a lot of wear and tear over the years, so you need to think beyond looks alone and determine what type of surface you need.

Natural stone countertops, particularly granite, are such a popular choice because of the durability they provide. For many, in regards to value, such durability exceeds aesthetic appeal. You desire for the countertop material you choose to go with to last for many years to come. Here are some considerations to make:

  • How many people will use the space on average? Does this include children?
  • What budget do you have in mind?
  • Do you want your bathroom to have a custom-installed countertop or just a small vanity top?
  • Are you comfortable with the necessity of sealing a countertop once a year?
  • Do you do a lot of cooking at home?
  • What colors and finishes do you want? What decorating scheme do you have throughout the rest of your home?
  • Do you often use a lot of highly abrasive chemicals in your bathroom or kitchen?
