Factors To Consider Before Choosing A Countertop

Factors To Consider While Choosing A Countertop. 

The countertop is the first thing many people see when entering your kitchen. It can lighten up or ruin the entire look of your kitchen.

 Kitchen remodeling is a great way to add value to your home and improve the quality of life for you and your family.

 A Good-looking, well-designed countertop can round off your perfect kitchen remodel.

An ideal kitchen countertop must be tough, practical, and stylish.

Countertops are an investment, and you’ll want that investment to stand the test of time.

From granite and quartzite to marble and Cambria quartz, a kitchen countertop specialist at Kitchen And Bath Decor Houston can guide you to pick the best surface for your kitchen.

Some factors to consider when selecting a countertop for your kitchen in Houston include the following:




You need to choose a countertop material that can hold up to daily kitchen chores, especially if you entertain or cook a lot. Kitchen countertops are a lot more than just places to chop and prepare vegetables or meat; they also hold most of the appliances in a kitchen.

If you chop vegetables or cut meat regularly, you can install a butcher’s block in one section of the countertop as a built-in cutting board. If baking is your passion, choose an area of marble countertop with a surface where you can work with dough. Mixing kitchen countertop materials can save you money as you can install an affordable material in one area and something more expensive in another.




A variety of kitchen countertop materials are available at varying price ranges. When looking for the right countertop for your kitchen, it’s best to decide on your ideal material first and then look for a product to fit your budget.

While working on your budget, you must be aware of hidden renovation, future maintenance, and repair costs.

If you love the way marble looks but work with a tight budget, you could choose a quartz countertop. This engineered material can mimic the appearance of any material at a fraction of the cost of marble or granite.

Locally-sourced marble will be less expensive than the imported variety. You can select a suitable material by determining how much you’re comfortable spending.

Our 5,000-square-foot Houston showroom has over 50 marble color options and patterns to choose from.



One of the most important factors to consider when looking for a kitchen countertop material is its ability to resist scratches, stains, and daily wear and tear. 

The durability you need will largely depend on how the surface is to be used. If you have a kitchen that sees a lot of action, it’s best to choose granite or quartz countertops.

Generally, granite and quartz perform well when exposed to hot pots, pans, and sharp knives. 



Even the most durable kitchen countertop will require regular upkeep to remain pristine. Natural stone countertops such as granite and marble require regular sealing because of their porosity. Many consider granite the “gold standard” when it comes to kitchen and bathroom countertops. These surfaces will not develop mold or mildew in humid environments and are easy to keep clean.

Their beauty and the fact that they increase your home’s value make them well worth the investment.

Alternatively, you can choose quartz countertops to eliminate maintenance requirements. 

Cambria® quartz is stronger than granite and comes in several breathtaking designs. It’s a certified safe food preparation surface because it prevents bacteria and mold growth. There are virtually no maintenance requirements since Cambria quartz doesn’t need to be sealed.

Cambria® quartz is only available through select and exclusive dealers like Kitchen and Bath Decor & More in Houston.




A lot of work takes place in the fabrication and installation of your countertops. Measuring, cutting, sanding, polishing, and sealing are just some of the steps that take place before your countertops are installed in your kitchen. 

The most important tool a professional countertop installation contractor brings to the table is experience. They can efficiently and expertly install your countertops and help you choose the best countertop for your kitchen and your lifestyle and tell you where to get it.
