Countertop Considerations

Published on September 20th, 2016

When you are replacing countertops in your home, there are plenty of factors to consider. Fortunately, with the experts at Best Buy Carpet and Granite, we can help you make the big decisions! We understand that there are hundreds of options when it comes to granite countertops, so it can be overwhelming. When you come and visit our showroom, and work with our staff, we can go through all of the following factors, as well as what will be perfect for your home!


Clearly, when remodeling, the appearance is likely the most important factor. If you are just replacing your countertops and nothing else, you will want to make sure that it will compliment the rest of the room. If you are doing an overall remodel, the granite you choose will still have to match the remodel.


One of the biggest benefits of granite countertops is that they are extremely durable. It is known for being able to resist cracks and chips, and is also easy to clean. For many, a durable countertop is necessary to protect from cooking and baking, as well as if you have kids! For maintenance, we use a fifteen-year sealer, so you won’t need to worry about annual re-sealing.


No matter what, you will want a professional to install your granite countertops. Granite is heavy and hard to handle, especially when it is a larger piece. The professional installers at Best Buy Carpet and Granite will be able to assist you through the process, properly install the countertops in a timely fashion, and will leave your kitchen looking great!

The perfect granite countertops are waiting for you at Best Buy Carpet and Granite! Come and visit our showroom and get started on the new countertops you’ve always wanted.
