The countertop can dramatically alter the appearance of your kitchen designs so you will have to pay a lot of attention to the election of colour and pattern. The best thing you could do when choosing the colour and design is to carry home a few samples of your preferred designs from the store. Place he tiles on your kitchen counter and then observe its appearance in order to gauge its suitability for your kitchen. It’s advisable to look at the tiles both in daylight as well as artificial night lights before making a choice.
Choosing the countertop edge
The edge treatment you choose will majorly influence your budget. Multiple curvilinear edge designs will be available at a costlier rate than a straight edge or a single curved edge. Wood laced edges are costlier than Formica edged ones. Your personal preference, colour of your kitchen, overall décor of your home, budget and lifestyle will influence your choice of the countertop edge.
Choosing the perfect installer
The company you buy your kitchen countertops from will ideally take care of the installation process too. In any case if you are choosing a countertop made of quartz or granite then you should remember that these materials are quite heavy and will require professional installation. Business bureaus, internet user forums and referrals are good sources from where you can get the contacts of countertop vendors. Make sure that the company you choose is bonded and has adequate insurance cover. You will have to look for a vendor who can commit your preferred schedule.
