The Right Countertop

Your kitchen is about to be renovated. It will be fantastic. It will be beautiful, functional, bright. It will be a happy place.

You’re about to choose colours and cabinets and flooring, and… oh, wait. Countertops. Now what? How do you know what you want?

You might look through magazines, and surf the Internet or turn to Pinterest. You might ask your friends and consider what you’ve seen in other homes.

Have you considered visiting a showroom? Whether it’s by appointment or in a virtual capacity, this is can be a great option to find some inspiration.  Your RenoMark® Renovator will be a good source of information about where to look and what options are available to you. There’s just so much to learn.

It seems there are endless brands, materials, and colours. Will you want bamboo, butcher block, granite, quartz, marble, soapstone, engineered stone, “solid surface”? Maybe you’ll want to have a custom counter, manufactured just for you.

Who knew there were so many elements to think about?

Whatever you do, don’t rush it. A good countertop is going to be with you for a long time.

Think about your lifestyle. If you have a busy family and kitchen spills are common, you might not want a counter that shows every fingerprint. Do you want something manufactured or natural? Do you want “green” materials? Do you want something that will repel bacteria?

Once you’ve done your own research, call in the experts. Ask your RenoMark® Renovator about inviting a designer into your space to talk to you about all your options. Even if it takes time and education, the right fit is out there.
