Choosing a worktop for your kitchen seems like a child’s play but it’s actually a much tougher nut to crack. Whenever we decide to give our beloved kitchen a makeover, the first thing we do is to visit a local furniture store to see whether they have something to soothe us or not. In some cases, we are not satisfied with the quality or the design of worktops and materials. After that, we visit various sites to see which worktop will suit our personality and taste.
As mistakes are meant to commit, it doesn’t mean they are done again and again! People often hurry or do not consider while buying worktops and countertops for their kitchen. Soon it leads to worn out of the material and stopped giving what you expected it to give for years. There is a whole list of mistakes that should be avoided while buying a kitchen worktop:
- Crossing the Budget Limit
Well, whenever we plan something to buy, it starts from deciding the budget. Figure out what amount you are ready to invest in worktops and then ensure you select one that lies in your budget. But, if you haven’t decided the budget yet, then consult an interior designer, professional kitchen designer or a worktop expert to give you suggestions suiting your pocket.
Basically, there are three levels of pricing involved in worktops such as High, Medium and Low. If you want to go for materials like Granite and Quartz, then it will go sky high, but if you choose Laminate, it will a low level of pricing.
- Selecting Wrong Material
It’s quite obvious yet it happens more than you could ever think of! While standing on the cash counter after choosing a material or waiting to push buy button online, you have to be sure about it. Altering your decisions on opinions of magazines, design shows and videos and not listening to your inner voice can be a big mistake as it can make the process even more daunting. Always keep a balance between function and fashion.
- Choosing the Wrong Color
It is recommended to choose your worktop’s color with utmost care. Do not go after colors that are too busy in playing racket ball with floor’s color. Often times, it can result in a busy looking space. Many of us have gone through a few disasters of design – mixing of two colors that do not match at all and fight to be seen. Avoid using twin colored worktop as it can sometimes leave an opposite impact. It may seem like you fell for a cheap deal on a mismatched piece of the worktop.
- Stone Worktops Are Unbeatable
It is hard to break the ice but stone worktops are “THE” best in the market and have been the best from years. From the whole list, marble kitchen worktops are the one which lasts for years and serves you with immense stability and sturdiness throughout their journey. They come in various price tags so that they can fit in their budgets.
Never take hasty decisions, whenever in doubt, feel free to ask questions to consultants and experts. With the above-mentioned mistakes, you can learn a lot and understand, how important it is to observe before buying worktops for your kitchen.
