Brand new quartz countertop

A kitchen upgrade or renovation is in your future, and you’ve been doing your research. You know that countertops are one of the most important features in any kitchen—not only aesthetically but functionally as well. Your counters take a beating: the spills, the scratches, the everyday wear and tear. With these considerations in mind, the material you decide to use is important. Stone fits the bill when you are considering both beauty and durability.

There are all kinds of decisions you have to make when you make a kitchen upgrade. One of the most important is who to partner with to create the kitchen you want. McKenna’s Kitchen & Bath is the smart choice if you want it done right. Stop by the Rochester, NY location and while you’re there, keep these things in mind:

Narrowing Down All The Options

You’ve browsed around for ideas. There are so many options for kitchen counters that it can be overwhelming. We get it. The best way to narrow it down is to ask yourself: “What’s important to me?” If you’re like most informed homeowners, durability and value for the investment are two of the most crucial factors. Granite was a must on most of the home improvement shows for a bit, and it’s still a good choice. But Cambria Quartz is quickly becoming the new favorite because it marries visual appeal and durability, making it a great long-term value. No matter what kind of stone you choose, McKenna’s Kitchen & Bath has the best selection in Rochester, NY.

You’ve Narrowed It Down: Now What?

You’ve got a rough idea of what kind of stone you’d like for your new kitchen countertops. Next, you’ve got to think about your dimensions. Whether you’re planning on staying with the same footprint of your old countertops, or you're planning on a whole new blueprint, you’ll want to take some measurements. Accurate measurements equal an accurate estimate of what you’ll spend. Get out the tape measure, and if you’re not quite comfortable with this step, stop by McKenna’s and speak with one of our experienced designers. Perfection is in the details, and once you have these, you can get pricing and other helpful information.
