Of the endless number of things that make up your home, only one is subject to daily and repeated knife attacks.  Well, sort of.  Hopefully you're using a cutting board, but who among us can say they never went blade to stone?  The point to be made here, is that our kitchen counter tops are subject to some of the most consistent and intense wear and tear possible.  And because of their eye-catching appearance in most kitchens, they're also a fundamental part of your décor.

If it's been some time since you last had to buy a kitchen counter, or if you're just ready to upgrade to something a bit more modern, there are plenty of options to improve the look and functionality of your Rochester NY kitchen.  Here are a couple countertop-related points to keep in mind.

Which Stone Countertop is Best for Your Home?

Shopping for a new or replacement kitchen counter involves the consideration of many factors, but let's focus on two that seem to concern most homeowners.  Durability and value.  While granite countertops have always held the bulk of the spotlight, more and more Rochester homeowners are going with Cambria Quartz as a replacement option.  The visual and aesthetic possibilities are as stunning as they are endless, while offering what is arguably the best combination of long-term surface durability and sustained value.

Where to Start When Ordering a New Countertop

Regardless of whether you're planning on keeping exactly the same dimensions or, space permitting, installing a more customized countertop, you'll need to start by taking some basic measurements.  Try to measure as accurately as possible, as these will serve as the baseline for getting you the most accurate quotes.  If you're not sure how to do this, ask a tool-savvy friend or relative.  Once you have a clean sketch in hand, head on down to your local McKenna's bath and kitchen showroom to get pricing and other helpful info.
