You don’t have to be an interior decorator to know that quality and color matter when you’re remodeling any aspect of your home, especially your kitchen and bathroom countertops. When it comes to quality, granite is your best option. And when it comes to choosing a color to match your bathroom or kitchen style, granite’s wide variety of color options makes it perfect for any home. Picking out the right granite counters in northern MN for your home can be tricky, though. Here are a few helpful tips that should make your decision easier:
- Look for thick countertops: Granite is simply the best choice for countertops. Among many other great qualities, it’s long lasting, looks great in any home and is essentially germ free. However, not all granite countertops are created equal. Some countertops are thinner than others, which makes them less durable than their thicker counterparts. While a thicker countertop will cost more, it’s also sure to last longer, making it a better investment over time. Look for granite countertops that are at least one inch thick. At L & L Granite Countertops, we sell some of the thickest countertops in the area, so there’s no need to worry about buying a low-quality product from our showroom!
- Ask questions: Shopping for new granite counters in northern MN can be tricky if you’re unfamiliar with granite (or counters in general). Our friendly staff members will gladly answer any questions that pop into your head while you’re browsing our vast selection of granite counters.
- Choose your colors wisely: As mentioned above, granite comes in a wide variety of colors. The base color of the granite varies, and the marbling of the stone significantly adds to the color difference. No two granite countertops are alike! All of the variations can make it tricky to choose one. You obviously want a color that’ll match the rest of your house. A good rule of thumb is that darker-colored granite is great for kitchens with a lot of natural light, while kitchens or bathrooms with little to no natural light benefit from lighter-colored granite. Our installation experts are glad to let you sample different colors to see which one will fit best in your home. If you have the money, why not pick two? Light granite counters with dark granite cabinets will really make your kitchen pop.
- Stick to your budget: Speaking of money, don’t blow your budget! While it’s certainly worth the money, installing granite countertops can get pretty pricy. Remodeling a kitchen or bathroom can be expensive, so don’t spend your whole budget on new counters. Luckily for our customers, we offer the highest quality granite at some of the lowest prices in northern Minnesota! Be sure to browse our selection before choosing to buy counters from another company.
