Choosing Your New Kitchen Countertops

Kitchen countertops act as both a workspace and an item of décor. Because this is where all of your food is prepared as well as a point of attraction in your home, you need a surface that is hard-wearing, gorgeous and efficient. However, choosing the right countertop can be a daunting task.

You cannot simply walk into the nearest hardware store in Boise and find the best countertops at an affordable price. Known for their architectural specialties, such as doors and windows, Johnson Brothers can help you set your priorities straight to find the countertops to turn your kitchen into your happy place.

Using Your Countertops

The most important thing to consider when choosing your new kitchen countertops is the way you use your kitchen. For example, if you have teenage boys, your countertops may see a great deal of use daily. You do an average amount of cooking for the family, but your boys are always making meals in between meals. If this sounds like your household, you want countertops that are going to stand up to various cooking and cleaning styles. Decide if you are more concerned with food stains or protecting against scratches.

Desired Maintenance Level

Some countertops require a considerable amount of upkeep to make them last, while other types are much more resilient. Think about the effort that you are willing to put into taking care of your new countertops. Porous countertops like granite will need to be sealed annually. Wooden countertops will need to be oiled twice a year. Before making any final decisions, determine the amount of work to keep your countertops beautiful.

Know Your Budget

Finally, it is important to choose kitchen countertops that will fit in your budget. Quality commercial architectural woodwork is beautiful, but may not be a reasonable option for your home. However, when properly maintained a good countertop will last for a long time. Therefore, consider any amount you spend an investment.
