Countertops are a statement; they can tie your whole kitchen together. Whether you are looking at marble, granite or quartz…when it’s time to invest in new countertops, you do not want to compromise your new look with anything less-than-perfect installation. Here are the eight steps to ensure you achieve the perfect countertop installation.
Budget it Out.
Simple, yet often neglected by homeowners. Knowing what you want to spend and how you want to spend it allows you to set realistic expectations and accomplish your desired look with your new countertops.
Plan, Plan, Plan!
Countertop installation is a big project, so you will want to work around you and your family’s schedules. Countertop installations are pretty quick, but you would not want to have to cook a huge meal the same day you’re getting your counters redone. Remember that being without a kitchen – even for a short time – can be stressful. Plan ahead to make your installation process as stress-free as possible.
Get to Know Your Space.
It is always fun to change up the layout of your space, but it’s important to know what you’ve got going on in your existing space. This helps you see what you do and don’t want in your new and improved space and can help you determine if you want anything added in. It is also important to note how you and your family interact with that space, plumbing and electrical systems, and traffic patterns.
Measure, Measure, Measure.
You are going to want to get measurements and dimensions of your space before heading off to pick out your new countertops. These measurements should include your current space and your future space. Though they don’t need to be exact, they will help you pick out your materials and get the process started!
