New Countertops for Your Home in Melrose
Getting Ready for New Countertops?
Countertops are one of the most important features in your Melrose kitchen. Along with the cabinetry, they set the tone and style of the room. This is why homeowners and designers spend so much time searching for the perfect style. At CJB Group Kitchens, we have many different choices available so that you can find the perfect countertops for your dream kitchen.
Kitchens are one of the areas in a home that take the most abuse. Years of wear and tear will leave their mark. Hot pans set down, knives that slip off of cutting boards, sticky kid fingers and harsh cleaners will all leave surfaces scratched, nicked, and faded. Whether you are designing a kitchen for a new construction project or updating an existing one, there are several considerations that you should keep in mind when shopping for your new countertops.
Know Your Options
The first consideration in choosing countertops is the material. There are a lot of different choices on the market- granite and quartz, wood and stainless steel, laminate and tile, concrete and more. Each of them are perfect for some people and terrible choices for others. Some are very durable and withstand heavy use and abuse. Solid surfaces don’t harbor bacteria and are easier to keep clean.
Know Your Style
Once you select your favorite material, then you can consider the countless available finishes. The material goes a long way in determining the feel of a room. Are you looking for something classic and simple? Do you like a funky modern vibe? Do you want something clean and futuristic? You’ll be spending many hours in your kitchen over the years, so you want to put your personality into it.
Know Your Budget
Before you start shopping, know how much you can spend. It is devastating to fall in love with a countertop and then discover that it’s way out of your price range. Once you decide how much you can realistically spend, you can focus your search on materials and features that you can afford.
Know Your Maintenance Needs
When looking for countertops, many people don’t think about maintenance. It’s something that you should consider. Some materials need to be sealed, glazed, or finished every so often, and that should be included when looking at your budget. Other materials need cleaners that won’t scratch or leave marks. Those are factors that might affect your decision.
Choosing the Right Countertop for Your Kitchen
When you are designing your perfect kitchen, don’t stop at the countertops. You want your cabinets, backsplash, and other finishes to all complement each other in your Melrose home. The different fixtures and features that you choose will make your room both functional and fun.
