Why You Should Look into Custom Countertops

Home Improvement

Whether you want to build your dream home or upgrade your current home, special attention should go to your kitchen. Not only is it a great place to invest, since that money will come back to you when you want to sell, but it is also a high-traffic area with both functional and aesthetic requirements. In particular, the countertops you choose will set the tone for the entire room, which in turn sets the tone for your home. Custom countertops options in Atlanta allow you to get exactly what you want, and classic options like granite and marble make gorgeous additions to your home.

Granite vs. Marble

White both granite and marble are natural, beautiful stone, they each have their own qualities and benefits. Both make wonderful options for countertop materials, depending on your needs and preferences.

Granite is an extremely durable stone created under heat and pressure, so it is great for kitchens that see a lot of use, people with families and children, and anyone who wants countertops that can withstand a lot of use and abuse. Granite is resistant to heat, water, scratching, and staining, so it works very well next to sinks, near cooking ranges, and in spaces where you eat and cook. It is anti-microbial, meaning that is doesn’t harbor germs and it is very easy to clean and maintain. Granite should be sealed and treated each year in order to maintain its beneficial qualities and appearance.

Marble is also a natural stone, so each slab is unique. People who prefer bright, beautiful, elegant kitchens with a lot of character tend to gravitate towards marble countertops. Marble is a material that can be kept in pristine condition with some maintenance, although many people prefer the character than comes with aged marble (the porous material can be susceptible to stains, etching, and wear). Marble is the preferred choice of people who love to bake, and it keeps kitchens cool. You can choose countertops with honed or polished finishes, depending on the look you prefer. Marble is also easy to clean, and maintenance includes cleaning stains and sealing the stone to keep it protected.

Both options come in a variety of price ranges, colors, patterns, textures, and options for cut, finish, and shape.

The Process

Once you know that you want new countertops, a visit to meet with the professionals is a good idea. Try setting up a consultation and bring along your measurements and pictures of your kitchen space so you can get a better idea of what you’re working with. You can discuss budgets and pricing, since both marble and granite have options at the low and high ends of the money spectrum. Both materials can be cut into the shape and size you need for your kitchen space, and you can customize your countertops by having the edges shaped or by throwing in personal touches. Custom countertops options in Atlanta give you the flexibility you need and the ability to get exactly what you want in the exact way that you want it.
