We offer quality and top-notch countertops perfect for your home. And to really give you a jumpstart, here are 5 tips on how to choose the right countertops.
1. Do Your Research
- Granite is scratch, heat-resistant, and chip.
- Quartz is bot scratch and chip-resistant, but it is not as heat-resistant as the aforementioned.
- Marble is porous and soft. Our clients often pick it for its aesthetic appeal than its durability.
2. Go for Thickness
You want to make sure that your countertops are as durable as it can get. So, as much as possible, go for the ¾ inches countertops which are more fragile. Just keep in mind that they require lamination on edges and supports. Nonetheless, they are worth your investment. You also have the option to go for the 1 inch countertops if you are really looking for superior quality and durability.
3. Consider Going for an Undermount Sink
There is a huge reason why this type of sink is getting popular these days. That is because it offers the best functionality in all kitchen countertops, not to mention it is stylish. It is basically a kitchen (sometimes a bathroom) sink that is mounted right under your countertop. There are two benefits to using the undermount sink and they are as follows:
- You can easily wipe all the crumbs that accumulate on the counter right into the sink.
- It does not burden you when it comes to cleaning the sink.
4. Pick Up the Right Color
