Tips From Our Granite Fabricators: Choosing the Perfect CountertopJuly 6th, 2017
Here at Vandelay Stone Tops, our granite fabricators have helped hundreds of people choose the perfect countertops for their home. Thanks to this experience, our granite fabricators have plenty of advice to offer if you’re unsure of what type or style of countertop to put in your home. Here are some of the main guidelines to keep in mind:
- Asses the way you live — Your daily lifestyle plays a big role in the countertops that will work in your home. Our granite fabricators suggest going with a more durable type of countertop, like granite, if you have young kids, and choosing a less sturdy, but equally as stunning type of countertop, like marble, if your day-to-day life won’t be too hard on your new counters.
- Think about the other features in your home — If, for example, you’re putting new countertops in your kitchen, make sure the color of the slab you pick complements the other features in this room, especially the flooring and cabinets.
- Don’t go just based on looks — It’s tempting to choose a countertop material solely based on how it looks. Whatever you do, refrain from doing this and go with countertops based on the way they look, their durability, and their ease of maintenance.
- Consider how much time you have — Certain countertop materials need more maintenance than others. Really think about how much time you’re willing to spend on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis maintaining your countertops.
