Remodeling your kitchen is one of the few home improvement projects you can do that can add significant value to your house. One of the biggest decisions in a kitchen remodeling project is what material, style, or brand of countertops you are going to install. While Quest Interiors offers several options for countertop materials, our team of professionals will help you to ensure that you choose the right one for your space. Let Quest Interiors help you explore countertop considerations before you tackle that kitchen countertop remodeling project.
The Quality of Your Cabinets
Prior to picking your new kitchen countertop material, you first need to think about the quality of the kitchen cabinets in your space. Make sure that your current cabinets will support the weight of your new countertops, as some lower-grade cabinets don’t have the structural integrity to bear the weight of heavier counter materials.
Kitchen Sink Styles and Kitchen Countertops
Another thing to consider when you are planning a kitchen countertop remodeling project is the configuration of your kitchen sink. The sink style you want will dictate how you install new countertops. Not only will countertops be impacted, but you may have to have the plumbing reconfigured prior to the installation of new countertops. It is best to have an expert’s opinion, like Quest Interiors’ design consultants, so make sure to reach out to our team of countertop installers about whether or not sink replacement will be necessary for your project!
New countertops can transform your kitchen, making it feel like a completely refreshed and new space. This is especially true if you also choose to replace your existing cabinetry with new cabinets. However, an outdated kitchen backsplash can suddenly look out of place and may not match the style or look that the updated cabinets and countertops bring to your kitchen.
Sometimes your new countertops will be thicker than their predecessors, causing your backsplash to extend down too low on the wall, running into your new countertops. Unless your new countertops are very similar to the ones being replaced, it is a good idea to update or replace the existing backsplash in your kitchen.
A Remodeling Aesthetic
Your personal preferences or design aesthetic make up one of the biggest factors contributing to your countertop remodeling project. The kitchen countertops are the first thing guests notice when walking into the kitchen space, setting the tone for the rest of the room. You will want to pick materials that will go with your color scheme, that you will love for years to come.
