Every once in a while, homeowners begin to consider a full scale kitchen remodel, including countertops. Trends come and go, colors fade, and a new look is just the thing to really brighten that room again. However, in lieu of a complete remodel, sometimes taking things a step at a time is really the best option. After having new counters installed, many homeowners have found it was just what they were looking for, and nothing extra is needed. Let’s continue to find out why that is.

Old, dated countertops can make it hard to have a truly functioning kitchen. You’ll know it’s time to replace them if you find them faded, chipped, broken, torn, or any variety of other defects that can make them less than perfect. What’s more, it does nothing for your mood to walk into a kitchen that doesn’t look as good as it possibly could.
Before shopping for new countertops, make sure you assess the situation, and your needs, before making any final decisions. Accurate measurements will be crucial. You’ll also need to determine the usage you’re looking for in these pieces. For instance, will you be using them as a cutting board? Will homework be done on the same counters you prepare meals on? Will you need something with care requirements that are easy to meet? Some materials can carry hefty maintenance schedules, so be sure to ask lots of questions.
If replacing countertops with cabinets underneath make sure the weight of the new products will be supported. Your sales specialist should be able to tell you this, as can your installers. Even if you reach the installation date and find that they don’t, your installers can add reinforcements, if necessary. Also ask about special care for the product you’ve chosen, including sealing and polishing.
