4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Countertop
Choosing the Right Material
We keep natural stone, quartz and porcelain, and all of them are very different from each other. Some tolerate heat better, while some are stain-resistant and others are flexible when it comes to design.
Quartz, for example, can fade when exposed to sunlight and therefore can’t be used in sunny kitchens. Granite and marble need to be sealed to make them waterproof and stain-resistant, so they may not be ideal for vacation homes that you visit once a year. Some natural stone varieties are a little softer, which means they could get scratched somewhat easily.
You’ll need some guidance on which material is right for you, and as the owners of a countertop showroom we’re the perfect people to provide it!
Increasing a Property’s Value
If you’re planning on selling your home in the future, a slab countertop would be a really good idea. Not only will the new homeowners love having it in their kitchen, but it’ll almost certainly increase your home’s value so you can get a better price for it. Of course, you’ll want to make sure the countertop’s installed properly, so the potential buyers don’t get disappointed. Contact us for professional countertop installation in Woodinville.
Don’t Just Look at Photos
We understand that you’re busy and that looking at photos online is a lot more convenient. However, a kitchen countertop will be with you for a while (likely a lifetime), so we really recommend taking the time to visit a store and see different slabs in natural light. Photos can make a product look different due to the light, camera quality, and visual effects. Feel the slab, examine its texture, and ask the salesperson about its characteristics.
Cost of Slab Countertop Installation
It’s no secret that slab countertops can be a bit pricey. However, there are some ways to save, so you can afford a nice countertop for a reasonable cost. The best, of course, is to watch out for sales and discounts. We offer discounted rates on most of our products, and you’ll be pleased to know that our rates for slab (including fabrication and installation) start at just $62 per square foot.
You can also consider using remnants or mixing materials to cut down costs. Use a nicer material in highly visible areas, for instance, and something a little less expensive in other areas. Using remnants is eco-friendly, and you’ll get a lovely mosaic-like effect.
