The kitchen countertop is a big investment and will be a part of your King County home for several decades. It goes without saying that kitchen countertop selection requires careful consideration. Here are some tips for helping you make an informed decision.
1. Resale Value
Should you decide to sell your home, will the countertop have mass appeal to buyers? Just because you think the countertop looks nice doesn’t mean other people will agree. It may be better to stick with kitchen countertops with broad appeal, such as granite, marble and quartz. Countertops that require a lot of maintenance, such as periodic sealing, may also be a put-off for potential buyers.
2. Color & Texture
Is the countertop’s color compatible with the surrounding kitchen cabinets, backsplash and appliances? Keep in mind that you may also make renovations over time. If you change the cabinets, furniture or fixtures, can you easily find colors for these that match the countertop? In addition to color, options like granite and quartz have specific textural features that add further visual appeal and complement the surroundings. Granite, for example, has a rough and grainy texture that goes well with cottage and farm-style homes.
3. Function vs Aesthetics
Are you one who uses your kitchen surfaces every day for preparing meals? For chefs and avid cookers, countertop surfaces like stainless steal may be a good option because it’s durable and easy to clean. For most homeowners, though, steel has an industrial vibe and isn’t the most visually appealing. What holds more weight with you: Aesthetics or practical use?
