Choosing the perfect countertop for your kitchen remodel is no simple task. The options are pretty much endless. You’ll need to consider aesthetics, function, and budget when choosing the countertop that is right for your home.
The countertops are more than a graveyard for discarded mail and this morning’s breakfast. They are a core component to the design and look of your kitchen. When choosing a countertop, look at the overall design of the space. What are you hoping the finished product looks like? Take your time with this part of the process. Once you know the look you are going for, then you can move on to budget and functionality.
When referring to the function of your countertops, we don’t mean their capability to hold a plethora of treats and trinkets. The function means: How easy are they to clean? Do they get upset when red wine has been spilled on them and left overnight? Are they susceptible to cracks and chips? Do they fade in the sun? Are they natural or manufactured? Figure out what kind of care you are willing to put into the countertops. This will help you narrow down your choices.
Ah, budgets. A critical aspect of a kitchen remodel. If you are eyeing some costly countertops, you could try and cut the budget in other areas of the remodel. A budget doesn’t have to constrain you to the point of sacrificing design. There are an incredible amount of gorgeous countertops for every budget. You can always talk with a professional to see what those options are.
Choosing the countertop for your kitchen remodel is an exciting decision because they are such a huge visual component in the space. When looking through your options, don’t be afraid to ask questions and look at samples to help you decide what is the best fit for your taste, needs, and budget.
