How to Choose Kitchen Countertops 1

Of course, you want your kitchen countertops to be aesthetically pleasing and match the appearance of your kitchen. As the room in your home you spend the most time in, it is important for your kitchen to be the beautiful oasis you need. However, there is so much more to consider when it comes to choosing the right kitchen countertops for your home. At Royal Granite, we can walk you through the entire process to make sure you find the right fit for your needs. In the meantime, here are the key considerations you should make when choosing kitchen countertops.


One of the primary considerations you should make when choosing kitchen countertops is how you will use them. For example, if you have a house full of children and are constantly making big meals and cutting up PB&J sandwiches on the counters, you probably should avoid white granite. On the other hand, if you use your kitchen less for cooking for more for entertaining, you may feel that your preference for color is more important than your need for durability. Regardless of which countertop you end up choosing, make sure to first consider how you will use it.


When it comes to kitchen countertops, there is wide array of different directions in which you can go in terms of price. Of course, when you are considering any investment into your home, it is imperative to also consider the value it is adding to your home. Tile countertops might be cheap upon initial installation, but when you are trying to sell your home in five years, you aren’t going to get the ROI you would if you had in investment in a higher quality countertop. Consider how much value you want your home to have when you are picking countertops. Quartz, for example, may be a higher-end countertop material that can be expensive, but it is very attractive to potential homebuyers. If you invest in a higher quality material, you can see quite a high return on your initial investment.

You will also have to factor in what material you would like to use for your countertop. At Royal Granite, we offer two of the most attractive options: granite and quartz. Granite countertops are appealing to homeowners for several reasons: one, granite is aesthetically pleasing and unique; no two pieces of granite look the same, making your granite countertops completely unique to your home. It is also a very durable material for countertops. Quartz also offers many advantages as well; first of all, quartz is your most durable option in terms of countertops. Quartz naturally resists stains and scratches, but doesn’t require sealing, making it also the most low-maintenance countertop you can buy. Regardless of whether you choose granite or quartz, we can help you with choosing and installing your kitchen countertops.


The last thing you want to have to do is spend hundreds of dollars repairing your kitchen countertops in the event of an accident. However, there are certain styles of countertops that are more easily repaired than others. For example, it is easier to repair granite countertops than concrete countertops. Especially if you live a lifestyle in which your countertops will take a beating, it’s important to keep in mind how easily you will be able to repair your counters. It’s better to think about this now than wait until you have installed a material that is near impossible to repair.
