RNB Design Group – Your countertop experts
Home décor tells a story and naturally becomes an extension of you, a reflection of your personality, point-of-view, individuality and style. You probably already have some ideas about what you want and you’ll get many more and learn a ton on this website. So, have fun with it… make a statement… however, it’s important to remember there’s more to consider than that which meets the eye!
Certainly any surface you choose must appeal to your taste and harmonize with your design theme, but it must also suit your lifestyle… that is, how you and your family use the surface… which depends on where it’s installed… and of course, your budget… which will affect not only your choice of counter-top material, but possibly color & finish choices (for some materials different colors/finishes are more or less expensive) and design details.
Major Countertop Considerations:
- Current design and home style
- Color, pattern & texture or “finish”
- Counter-top edges
- Expected or desired performance & durability
- Maintenance requirements (often overlooked)
- Materials & installation costs
Luckily, when choosing a material for your wet bar, outdoor kitchen, laundry room, bathroom vanity or kitchen remodeling project you have numerous (almost overwhelming) options and combinations of color, pattern, edge detail, finish, performance, maintenance and cost to satisfy all of your particular needs: style, lifestyle and budget.
However, in our experience people tend to focus far more time and attention on the look and feel when deciding which countertop or tile material to purchase and neglect to consider the performance & durability needed for the particular use of that surface, which can have a dramatic impact on your overall satisfaction… and sanity!
RNBdesigngroup.com is here with expert advice to help you figure it all out and understand the pros and cons of the key considerations to determine the best counter top surface for you.
