When remodeling your kitchen, one of the most challenging things should be choosing the right countertop. Indeed, the kitchen countertop is an essential decoration that adds aesthetic value and helps you prepare food well.
Today, with so many countertop options, choosing the most suitable one for your kitchen is not easy. Thus, as a professional quartz countertop manufacturer, we will tell you what you need to consider before buying your kitchen countertop. Hopefully, you can learn something valuable from it.
The first thing you need to consider is how you will use the kitchen countertop. A few people don't like cooking very much, so they simply use the countertop for having meals in the open kitchen. In this case, you can care more for the appearance of the countertop rather than its practicability. Granite and marble countertops are natural stones with unique patterns and colors, bringing a luxury and elegant sense to your kitchen.
However, if you are a cooking lover and cook almost every day, you will need to think if the countertop can withstand the wear from your daily use. A solid, durable, and practical kitchen countertop will be the best option. Thus, the quartz countertop, which has a hard surface and is wear, scratch and high temperature resistant, can handle all your daily cooking tasks.
If you want your kitchen countertop always to keep fresh, proper and regular maintenance is needed. Some countertops like marble and granite need sealing every year. So you will need to spend extra money and time on the maintenance of your kitchen countertop. Instead, the quartz stone countertop doesn't need sealing at all. What's more, maintaining a quartz countertop is relatively easy. You need to wipe its surface regularly with clean, warm water when there are stains on it. You can turn to a professional cleanser that is effective enough to deal with various kinds of stains for those stubborn stains.
Knowing how large your kitchen is is very important as it can help you estimate the size of the countertop you will need. What's more, the size of the countertop will decide how much you pay for the material.
The price of countertop materials can be very different. Generally, natural materials like marble and granite cost more than engineered ones like quartz and laminate. It is recommended to decide which type of countertops you like first, and then go for the one within your budget.
The color of the kitchen countertop also matters a lot. It is necessary to choose a color that coordinates with the style and accessories of your kitchen. If the countertop color doesn't fit the tone of your kitchen at all, everything will become weird. Thus, if you don't want to spend much time selecting a particular color, you can go for a versatile color that matches everything in your kitchen.
Quartz is an engineered stone, has been a popular option for kitchen countertop material these years. First of all, it is super hard to deal with all kinds of wear and scratches during daily use. Then, the quartz countertop is non-porous and stain-resistant, which means it is waterproof and easy to clean and maintain. Additionally, the quartz countertop is relatively low-cost compared to other natural stones like marble and granite. You can also customize the quartz countertop according to your preferred color, style, pattern, etc.
