How to Choose the Right Countertop for Your Design Style

As you think about the countertops you want to purchase for your home, it’s important to consider a number of factors. The style of your home, the look you are going for and the value your new countertops will add to your home are all potential factors when it comes time to buy the perfect kitchen countertops.

How to Match Your Countertops to Your Design Style

Consider the style of your home.

Taking a look at how you have designed and decorated the rest of your home will help determine the type of style you will have in your kitchen. While your entire house doesn’t have to match perfectly, your tastes influence how you design your entire home. Talk with a design expert about your kitchen needs, and soon you will have a perfect plan for your kitchen countertops that will match the design of your home.

Choose granite for a sophisticated look.

Granite countertops offer more than just a sleek, modern look. Granite is resistant to burns and stains, making granite an excellent choice for countertops in the kitchen. When choosing granite, no two pieces are the same, and granite comes in a wide variety of colors and shades. When you choose granite for your countertops, you are making a bold statement. Granite countertops add value to your home, and create a tasteful look that isn’t going out of style any time soon.

Metal countertops offer a unique and modern design.

Another way to create a modern-looking kitchen is to go with stainless steel countertops, backsplashes, and more. You can use stainless steel just about anywhere in your kitchen, including appliances and lighting. Stainless steel is both durable and easy to clean. When you do a lot of cooking in your kitchen, a stainless steel kitchen may be perfect for you.

Choose soapstone for a traditional kitchen style.

Soapstone is a beautiful stone, and no two stone slabs look alike. Soapstone comes in colors from pale green to light gray, and is often used in kitchen countertops. For a traditional look, you can pair soapstone countertops with white cabinetry. This will create a kitchen that you will love to spend time cooking in.

Add warmth with natural wood countertops.

For a bold design, custom made natural wood countertops will give you the look that you are going for. All of the wood countertops we offer are custom-made, and come in a variety of colors and thicknesses. The wood is not stained; it is the natural color of the wood that you are able to choose from. The wood countertops add a warm, natural look to the kitchen, and provide a durable work surface for all of your cooking needs.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
