Tis the season…for new countertops!

During the holidays your kitchen is the main focus. It’s where you prepare Christmas dinner or put apps and cocktails out for your friends to enjoy. So, if you aren’t loving your countertops, now is the time to make a change!

We know the holidays are crazy, and a kitchen countertop remodel is the last thing you want to focus on. However, with our quick turnaround time and tips for an easy decision making process, you will be ready to go and set up for the holiday season in no time!

Tip #1: Countertop Budget

Decide on a budget. Although you want to get to the fun part in picking out your countertops, it is important to know what you want to spend. There are so many great countertop options like granite and marble, but those also come with a higher price tag. So, decide what it is you’d truly like to spend, and from there you can work with our experienced Team at Planet Stone to pick the best natural stone for your budget!

Tip #2: Countertop Style

Now you get to decide how you would like to style your Los Angeles kitchen. With new modern countertop trends like the waterfall or butcher block insert, the options are endless! Are you looking to match your modern kitchen? Or classic? By answering these questions you will be able to narrow down which style best suits your kitchen “wants”.

An additional element to keep in mind is the style of your cabinets. If you have modern upgraded cabinets than a waterfall countertop will look great in the space. If you have rich wooden cabinets in place, a more classic layout with granite may be the better choice.

Tip # 3: Choose Your Natural Stone

There are so many natural stone options available, so choosing may seem like a daunting experience. However, we are here to make your holiday remodel easy and effortless. If you aren’t already set on the particular natural stone you want, we recommend doing a little research prior to your appointment. Why? Because different stones require different levels of care.

Although our Team would be more than happy to take you through which natural stone countertops are less upkeep, we wouldn’t want you to fall in love with marble or granite beforehand without knowing they are a high maintenance option. A little research will save you time and heartache

Now, that we have the basics covered, you might be ready to start your holiday kitchen countertop remodel. Give yourself the gift of a great entertainment space this year, and don’t worry about waiting weeks for your countertops to be installed. At Planet Stone we make it a priority to have your countertops cut and installed as quick as possible, so you can enjoy your space faster.
