When people decide to remodel their kitchen or bathroom, the step is usually switching out old countertops! If you have decided on using natural stone in your home, the next step is deciding on custom or prefabricated countertops. Not sure which is best for your home? Take a look below at the top three benefits prefab countertops have to offer!
#1 Better deal
Because prefabricated countertops have already been cut into standard dimensions, it often comes at a cheaper price than a slab of stone that must be custom fit into your home. If your kitchen or bathroom has standard measurements, prefab countertops are a great choice! Prefab granite countertops can be up to 45% cheaper than their custom alternative! But don’t worry, the cheaper price tag doesn’t affect quality at all!
#2 Great Quality
You will not be able to tell the difference between custom and prefab countertops! Since both types are made from natural stones, there is no difference in quality. The only true difference is the fit of the countertop. If your measurements differ even slightly from standard countertops, prefabricated countertops may not be the best option for your space.
#3 Easy Upkeep
Like with all natural stones, day to day upkeep is very easy! You just need a gentle cleanser to wipe down the countertops. Porous stones like marble, granite or limestone must be sealed every 6 to 12 months to avoid stains and dullness. However, if you decide on prefab quartz countertops, no sealing is necessary!
