Step-by-Step Guide to New Countertops

Home Repair
New countertops can be a great upgrade to your home. There are many reasons to have countertop specialists near Norcross upgrade your countertops, whether it is to update your kitchen from an older outdated style to a new modern style, or to have a new material installed that is easier to take care of. When you are having professionals put in new countertops, here are the essential steps you need to take along the way to a great product that you can be pleased with for years to come.

Do the Prep Work First

Make sure you are ready for the countertops when you have the professionals come to install them. The countertops are one of the home’s finishing touches and are generally not put in until the surrounding area is ready in terms of flooring tile, cabinets and cupboards. Putting the countertops in before some of the other essential elements may mean putting your countertops at increased risk for damage.

Put Together the Template

Make sure that all of your cabinets are installed exactly where you want them. Everything else, such as your sink and kitchen appliances like your refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and oven/stove are at least in the places where they will be when you put the countertops in. this will help your contractor know what adjustments need to be made and what cuts you need your countertops to be.

Different Heights for Different Uses

One trend that is becoming increasingly popular with countertops is to actually use different heights and different surfaces for different uses around the kitchen. For example, if you have a cutting area, you might want this area to be lower as well as darker in color to hide more blemishes caused by food stains or cutting. The rest of your kitchen you might just want standard height countertops or even taller than standard countertops if you have taller people in the family. If you have a kitchen island with a bar for people to sit at, consider the height that you want this countertop to be if you have kids who might climb up on those tall chairs and fall off.

Know All About Overhangs

One thing that many people either don’t know about or forget to think about when installing new countertops are the overhangs. An overhang refers to the stone that hangs over the edge of the countertop. There are many reasons to do this. Many people love the look of deep overhangs on countertops. A deep overhang might make the floors surrounding the island or your counters easier to clean because less stuff will be falling off. If you do like a deep overhang, you can usually have one up to 12 inches deep without requiring brackets, although added support is always a good thing.

Know Your Schedule

Make sure you have it outlined with your contractor when the work will commence, when it will be done, and what items will be completed when. This creates some accountability for the contractor and you will want to be present during installation so you can make sure that everything is done according to standards and per the contract that you signed. You will also need to plan other projects around your countertops, so knowing when they will be done is important so that you can have other contractors come and do work that depends on the countertops being completed, such as plumbing.

Add the Finishing Touches

After the countertops are done, you might feel tempted to sit at the kitchen island with a cup of coffee and just enjoy your facelifted space. However, now is the time to add a backsplash or do any painting that you wanted to have done. After you have applied the finishing touches, you should truly have a kitchen of your dreams. Talk to your countertop specialists near Norcross for good advice about the finishes that would work best with your new dream countertops.
