There are many things to consider when you are choosing your new countertop. Your counters are something that you see almost every day and it is a big investment which has to last a long time. Apart from all the choices of color, material, fabricator and installer, you also have to consider what things to watch out for. Here are 3 of the biggest things to keep in mind:
- Not considering the quality of the quartz: Not all quartz countertops are created equal. Some brands may use a lower quality of quartz or have a higher percentage of resin, which can affect the overall durability and appearance of the countertop. It is important to research and compare different brands and types of quartz before making a purchase.
- Not considering the cost of installation: Quartz countertops can be expensive, and many people may not factor in the cost of installation when budgeting for their purchase. It’s important to get a quote for installation from a professional before making a final decision.
- Not considering the color and pattern: Quartz countertops come in a wide range of colors and patterns, and it is important to choose a color and pattern that complements the overall design of the space. Some people may end up with a countertop that does not match their kitchen’s overall aesthetic. It’s important to see a sample of the countertop in the lighting of the room where it will be installed before making a final decision.
It’s important to think about all the factors before making a purchase, to ensure you get the best value for your money and are satisfied with the end results.
