Are you thinking of remodeling your kitchen or bathroom to give it a stunning yet practical appearance? If your answer is yes, then you should start thinking about buying new countertops. Although it is a common notion that the secret to a luxurious kitchen lies in marble or granite, engineered countertops will also serve the same purpose but with other added advantages.
In order to make the right decision as a new Reno countertops buyer, there are questions that you will be asking. Read on to find some of the most necessary questions to ask your countertops fabricator.
Buying new countertops in Reno
When buying countertops, there are a few things that need to be taken into account before you arrive at the final decision. The aesthetics and functionality of the surfaces after installation are the first issues you have to think about, and how the countertops will affect your home. You need to ask questions like:
– How will the new countertops affect the resale value of my home?
In estimate, most people in Nevada stay in one house for approximately 7-10 years. It is therefore wise to think about the resale value of your home when thinking about buying countertops for a remodel. Granite and marble countertops are timeless but choose a slab that matches your taste and interests. Remember that both functionality and aesthetics are the most important players in determining how much value your countertops will add to your home.
– Which are the best countertop colors?
Remember to stick to neutral colors so that you do not have a hard time trying to change the rest of your kitchen or bathroom accessories. Trends in home décor have been changing in the last decades, and neutral colors are the way to go, so that you don’t get stuck or limited to just a few styles. Get a color that also matches your backsplash so that you will have better options if you decide to go wild with your design. Neutral tones and natural colors will make it easier for future owners of the property to redecorate too. Always, when buying new Reno countertops, you should consult with your fabricator to know the best color selection.
– How much maintenance is needed for the new countertops?
To keep your Nevada countertops looking new and beautiful, you will need a fabricator who can apply a sealant on them at least twice every year. This does not take a lot of time, and you have the options of paying for this service as you buy your granite or Reno marble countertops. Engineered countertops do not require any sealant. Ask your fabricators the best sealant to use on your countertops.
– Is there something I shouldn’t use on my countertops?
If you have a high traffic kitchen and there is a lot of cooking taking place in there, you don’t have to worry because well sealed countertops or quartz surfaces can withstand a lot of wear and tear. Cleaning is also easy, all you need is a soapy sponge and water, assuming that your countertops are sealed. Granite and marble countertops are stunning and will look good in a low traffic kitchen.
– Will the countertops look good in the space available for installation?
The dimensions of the installation area are another factor to be taken seriously with every purchase of new Reno countertops. There are patterns of a slab that do not look pleasing in squeezed rooms while others will fit perfectly even in small areas. Let your fabricator help you decide the best color and patterns for your space.
