5 Reasons to Choose Custom Countertops

Jan 10, 2022 | Blog

Whether you’re remodeling your home or just renovating a small portion of your kitchen, getting the right countertop design that compliments the rest of your home is essential. The only way to achieve that is to avoid any cookie-cutter product designs. Instead, go for custom countertops that will bring out the best parts of your kitchen.

Here’s why you should choose to have a custom countertop designed and built for you:

1.   Durability Does the Trick

One thing’s for sure – countertops take a lot of abuse. They are subjected to spills, stains, wear, tear, and a lot more. That’s why it’s important to have countertops designed for the job. All too often, homeowners choose the least expensive countertops, thinking they will last a bit longer. However, that’s not always the case. Countertops are subjected to a lot more risk than they are worth. That’s why you should go with a countertop that will resist the elements and last you through the rest of your project. Don’t go cheap when you’re looking for countertop design and installation.

2.   Countertops that Fit Your Price Range

Sometimes, you’re not just looking for a counter that’s tough. At other times, you may need to have a counter that compliments your home decor and price range. For example, if you’re renovating a kitchen, then you’re probably looking to give it a rugged look and feel. But at the same time, you want to be mindful of the expenses involved. That’s where custom countertops come in. These designs can be made to fit your budget and still give you the durability and functionality that you need. The best part is that you can choose the material that works best for you, whether it’s quartz or granite, stone, or other materials.

3.   Reflect Your Own Style

When it comes to your kitchen, you don’t want to settle for something just because it’s in fashion. Instead, you want a countertop that is in harmony with the rest of your space, something that accentuates the best parts of your kitchen. Whether it’s a new appliance and you want to highlight it with a cherry finish or a darker countertop, it doesn’t matter. You need to find your own style and work with it. Sometimes, the best way to find your perfect countertop is to create it.

4.   Eliminate Visible Countertop Seams

Having a custom countertop designed for your space is a great way to eliminate visible seams. Countertops are traditionally built with a seam that runs right down the middle. This is because they are made by a lumber company (who usually cuts down the logs) that comes up with a one-size-fits-all solution. Custom countertops eliminate that seam completely. That’s because you’re working with a fabrication studio that allows you to design every element of your countertop to your precise needs.

5.   Choose Your Surface

From granite to marble, there are a variety of different countertops that you can choose from. It all depends on what you want to accomplish with your countertop design. Granite, for example, is a very durable countertop that will withstand most of the abuse that you have to put it through. Granite is also relatively inexpensive, making it a great choice for any countertop. On the other hand, marble is a much more expensive option, but it does bring out a much more luxurious feel to your kitchen.

Maximize Aesthetics with a Custom Kitchen Countertop Installation

Your kitchen is the heart of your home, so it’s only fair that your countertops reflect that. Whether it’s the color or the material that you choose, you want to make sure that it complements the rest of your kitchen. Custom countertops are a great way to achieve that.
