Anyone who has ever gone clothes shopping will be familiar with the fact that something doesn’t always look the same in the home as it does in the store. Well, the same applies to countertop materials as well. Even though that granite finish might have looked nice under the fluorescent store lighting, there is no way of knowing how it will look when installed next to your Wedi shower system until you bring some samples home and test it out. Once you’ve seen the samples under the unique lighting of your bathroom or kitchen, you will feel confident in your decision to order enough to replace the entire countertop.
The edge of your countertop is something you need to consider. This is especially true for a household with children since the wrong edge could result in the countertops posing a bigger hazard to them. So it is important that you really take the time to think about which edge makes the most sense for the countertops in your home. More often than not, a counter should have a smooth edge in order to maximize the value it brings to your home.
If countertops are going in a very controlled environment where the chances of being exposed to a lot of moisture or spills are low, then choosing a porous countertop material like marble is going to be perfectly fine. But in most cases, this isn’t the scenario that you are dealing with. Instead, the countertops are likely being installed in your kitchen or bathroom, where exposure to high amounts of moisture is incredibly likely.
That is why it is so important that you go with a countertop material that is classified as being non-porous. This means that any moisture that is splashed onto the countertops is not going to be able to penetrate the surface and create a stain or other issue nearly as easily. This is essential if you don’t want to have to spend a significant portion of your day taking care of the countertops and making sure that there is no moisture allowed to settle on the countertops for more than a couple of minutes.
