Choosing The Right Countertops

Posted on

If you are redoing the countertops in your kitchen then the most important decision that you will have before you will be regarding the type of countertop you decide to go with. When it comes to choosing the right countertops for your home there will be a few points to consider that will prove to be very important. These points include:

  • Your kitchen's décor
  • The size of budget you have to work with
  • The texture and colors available
  • Ease of cleaning

Here are some of the questions that may prove to be the most important when you are looking at all those different types of countertops and find yourself having a hard time choosing:

Which ones go the best with the rest of the kitchen?

Start by narrowing down your selection to the countertops that will look nice with the rest of your kitchen. If you have a fairly basic kitchen that's done in a modern way, then you may not want to go with a very expensive and elegant countertop that will look out of place. However, if you have put a lot into your kitchen then you definitely don't want to finish it off with budget countertops.

How much do you have to work with?

If you are working with a limited budget then you can put a little more effort into looking for blowout sales, grand openings, and other sales that may allow you to get a quality countertop for less. Otherwise, your budget may help narrow your choices down further.

Which types provide you the textures and colors you need?

When it comes to colors, you may find it easy to get the color you need in many types of countertops, but getting the right texture may prove to be a little more difficult. Some brands will only offer certain textures and some textures can be quite pricey.

How easy will the countertop be to clean?

When you are looking at different options don't forget to imagine how easy or difficult they will be to clean. For example, a nice and smooth countertop will be a lot easier to keep clean than small tiles that have a lot of grout for you to worry about keeping clean as well.


There are many great countertop manufacturers out there, with Cambria Countertops being a top contender. You should take a look at their selection when you are shopping because they have a lot of different styles, colors, textures, and prices to choose from.
