While many people may want to select countertops solely based on looks, other factors such as durability, cost, and maintenance are also important to keep in mind.

Here are three useful tips that you can make note of to help you select the right countertops for your kitchen.

*Edges that are more square are the most standard on countertops; however,edges that are decorative in nature, such as bevel, egg, and bullnose, are another wonderful way to completely customize your kitchen, despite the fact that they cost a bit more money. It’s also important to note that the overall availability of edges typically varies depending on the material of the countertop.

*If you’re unable to decide on one specific material to use, consider mixing and matching. You could also choose to inset another material that can be used for specific tasks while you’re in your kitchen, such as using butcher block for chopping and marble for baking.

*Always take the time to seek out a good fit in terms of space and material. For instance, if you have children who enjoy making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to eat, it may not be a good idea to use white granite as a suitable material for your countertops.
