Kitchen Countertop. Saturday , March 10th , 2018 - 03:55:29 AM
A Backsplash is a vertical panel installed above the frontage of a countertop. It has three essential functions. First, it serves to protect the wall from splatters and blocks spills and drips from seeping behind the cabinet. It helps keep both surfaces clean and dry, which, in turn, prevents mold from growing inside your kitchen.
The countertop's base is another important factor to consider during the design process. A countertop placed over a wooden cabinet typically requires a Laminated edge profile to hide the substrate supporting the slab. On the other hand, when installed on top of a concrete base or a metal or a stainless steel frame, a Skirting is recommended to conceal the structure underneath.
Sometimes those who choose to do it themselves run into unexpected problems or make mistakes that can be quite costly to repair, thus making the job cost even more than it would have to hire a contractor. This is an important advantage because contractors will be equipped with all the necessary tools and materials upon arriving to complete the job. Also, one serious mistake can mean repairing parts of the cabinet or island which didn't need any work at the beginning of the job. Additional materials may need to be purchased if cut or attached incorrectly.
Professionally installed counter-tops will also look great when it comes time to sell your home. While many people are able to do a decent job at installing the counter-tops themselves, a professional job will go a long way toward impressing prospective home buyers.
If you are looking for a new face for your kitchen then you may want to consider adding marble or stone counters as an addition to your kitchen. If you are selling your house any realtor will tell you that a clean and fresh looking kitchen will get higher bids on your house. It's simple; a nice kitchen is always refreshing.
Every countertop, regardless of its material, must not only appeal in form but must also achieve its function. Thus, every little detail requires careful planning before making a final decision on the design. Finding the right countertop for your home may look easy at first, but it becomes increasingly overwhelming once you consider all the details.
