For many homeowners, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms of the home. Not only do you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but it has the potential to be a lot more than simply, “the place you make food.” Many people dream of having beautiful stone countertops in their kitchen and Loukonen Bros is here to make that happen.

In this blog, we’re going to take a look at a few things you should consider when building the kitchen countertop of your dreams.

Determine Your Style

Homeowners are often surprised at how many options are available to them when choosing their kitchen countertop material. Not only that, but the way it’s cut matters too. Do you want something more angular or more rounded? It’s up to you! Granite, for example, is a popular option because it’s available in so many different varieties like white, black, coral, beige, and green. Or if you’re looking for something polished or soft and matte, these are options too.  

Understand The Cost

Stone countertops look beautiful in just about any home. However, you’re going to want to do measurements and determine exactly how much it’s going to cost you before you make any commitments. Some additional costs you’ll need to take into consideration include the price to cut the stone the way you like it, have it finished, and any installation costs. It’s best to add up all these costs beforehand so there aren’t any surprises once it comes time to pay.

Consider Functionality

Having a beautiful countertop in your kitchen is important, but if it’s not functional, it’s probably not worth your time and money. Be sure to look for a stone type that’s durable and won’t scratch easily. This way you’ll have a beautiful counter for years to come.

Don’t Forget Your Flooring

Stone countertops are great, but they’re only part of the story. If you really want your kitchen to shine, make sure you consider redoing your flooring and cabinetry as well. Doing all your stonework through one company and in one project will save you time and money in the long run.
