When buying countertops, there are many choices to make and things to consider.  Ultimately, you want to look for countertops that fit your lifestyle, design, and budget.  Nothing has a more dramatic impact on your kitchen or bathroom than your countertop.  A great one should be able to hold up to regular use and handle spills as well as hot cookware.  Whether you are remodeling your kitchen or bath, or building your home, our team at CJB Group Kitchens offer a few tips to picking the right countertop for you.

  • Know your budget: Countertops come in a variety of materials and range in price. Understand your budget on the project to select what is the best for you.  Granite and marble fall in the higher price bracket while Formica and laminate products will be in the lower price range.  Countertop are measured and sold by the square foot in most cases, so knowing your area will help you determine what route you will take.  Regardless of what you choose, each type of material offers a huge selection of styles that you will enjoy for years to come. 
  • Know your style: Your countertop can blend with your surroundings or act as an eye-catching focal point.  Once you have determined your budget, you will be able to narrow down your material choices to find a design that suits your style.  All countertops are functional in that they are designed to be used, though they can differ in the level of wear and tear as well as the level of heat they can handle.
