Four Important Things to Consider When Choosing Your Countertop

Kitchen renovations are a stressful time, and it’s hard to figure out what to choose for your countertop, arguably the most used part of the kitchen. There are a few main factors to consider when choosing your countertop; appearance, durability, maintenance, and cost.

1. Appearance

If you’re renovating your kitchen, it is most likely because it’s outdated and needs to be redone. You want to fall in love with your kitchen when it is finished, and one of the best ways to do that is with gorgeous countertops. Granite and quartz are the leading countertop materials at the moment, and that’s because it’s stunning. With a plethora of different styles, patterns and colours to choose from, you’re bound to find something that fits your tastes at Regina Countertops.

2. Durability

The kitchen is one of the most used areas of a house, and countertops sure do get their usage. Between cooking, playing, and baking, durability is certainly something to factor in when choosing your countertops. Out of all the materials you can use in your kitchen, quartz and granite are the most durable of all countertops. They can put up with your spouse not using a cutting board, a red wine spill, and almost whatever else your family can throw at, and, they’ll last for years and years.


3. Maintenance

Depending on what kind of countertop you go with, different levels of maintenance are needed. If you decide to go with something like a wood countertop, you can expect to be treating it with regular maintenance.  However, this is not the case with all beautiful natural materials, if that’s what you’re looking for. Granite, for example, is amazingly low maintenance. We get lots of people in thinking that granite requires to be sealed regularly, but that’s not the case. Granite only needs to be re-sealed every 20 or so years. Other than that, you simply clean it the same you would any countertop, but with a vinegar and water mixture!

4. Cost

Perhaps one of the most important factors to consider is the cost. Before even looking at renovations, determine your budget and what you can afford. While doing this you should also consider how much time you plan to spend in your home and the investment you want to make. After you’ve determined what your budget is, the most important thing is to stick to it. The worst feeling is stressing after you have completed your newly renovated kitchen, so budget carefully!
