Kitchen Countertops

What is a countertop, really? It is a place where you store your needed daily items, the tools that keep your day going like the coffee maker and the toaster. But, it’s more than that. It’s the place where your cookies cool on a chilly winter day. It’s the place where you teach your little ones how to make biscuits. It’s where you mix batches of Grandma’s potato salad for summer BBQs. When you have more than enough counter space, your kitchen feels amazing. You want to cook more or even entertain more. When you don’t have enough counter space the kitchen feels too small in every possible way. We can help with that.

Choosing the Right Type of Countertop

If you have never looked for countertops before, you might not know how many options you have including choices of materials, size, shape and even color choices. Every type has its drawbacks – for instance, marble slab can be easily stained and can only be cleaned with certain cleansers. Butcher block is a great choice because it was created to take a lot of abuse but it’s not going to look right in sleek, modern styled kitchen.

Some materials are more cost-effective than others. Quartz and granite tend to be at the higher end of the countertop market, while laminate may be more accessible. Again, it is important to choose the right type based on all of your needs and that means more than just price. You want one that looks right, performs the way that you need it to and is easy to care for. You also want one that reflects your tastes and maybe adds a little personal flavour to the room in the process. The right counter can make or break a kitchen in terms of appearance and function. We can help you make the right choice.

Whether you end up choosing concrete slab countertops or Corian, Dowdal Cabinets wants you to be completely satisfied with the entire process from design to estimate to installation. We will even give you helpful tips to keep your countertops looking great for many, many years to come.
