Installing new countertops in your kitchen or bathroom is a great investment in your home and lifestyle – but it can also be a challenging task. There might be a lot of information and different products out there that are leaving you confused. At Classic Tile + Stone, we want to make sure you are informed about the different countertop types and the steps that will be involved in the process. We put together a few steps that you will go through when purchasing a new countertop.
Visiting a showroom is an important step of the countertop process because you can see different stone types up close and personal. At this visit, you can compare stone types, see samples and colour options and talk about pricing. You’ll also be able to talk to a design expert, who can answer any questions you might have and help you make design decisions.
Pick a Sink & Faucet
Not only are the a variety of stone options, but there are a few different sink and faucet options you can pick from. Picking one that matches your countertop and overall design look is important to have everything tie in together. The stone installer will also need to know which sink and faucet you pick so they can drill holes in the countertop.
A lot of people don’t really know that there are a few countertop edge options to pick from for a countertop. The edge of a countertop is the design installed along the outer edge of your counter. Edge types differ in pricing, so make sure you ask your supplier about the options they have available.
There are several aspects you need to consider when picking your backsplash, such as material, colour and height. The most common type of material used for a backsplash is tile that extends between the countertop and cabinets. A design expert can help you compare colours that will match your countertop.
With all your decisions made, the stone supplier can now cut the countertop to your measurements and the installers will bring your countertops into your home to complete the installation. The whole process will take a few hours to get everything into place. And you have new countertops to enjoy!
