What to Consider When Choosing New Countertops

The kitchen is where the magic happens. Where your family comes together for meals and your friends join together for drinks after a hectic week. Why not make sure the space is reminiscent of just how special it is? With new countertops, you can completely transform your kitchen and turn it into a dream oasis in your home. NuStone Quartz can help.

Whether you’re on the hunt for white quartz kitchen countertops or are simply interested in the cost of kitchen countertops, we can help. Keep reading to learn more about what to consider when shopping for new countertops, and then contact us today to get started!


When shopping for new countertops, the very first aspect to consider is functionality. Sure, you want your quartz countertop installation to look good — but you really need it to work well. If you have young children who are likely to spill on your new countertops on, well, a regular basis, then you need something like quartz that is stain-resistant. A home chef who creates gourmet meals every night and someone who orders takeout every night will have different needs! Consider durability, maintenance, and stain resistance.


Of course, we didn’t say never to think about style! Modern kitchen countertops can encompass a wide range of looks, and you want to be sure to find one that matches your personal style. Consider aspects such as texture, shades, look, and feel when looking for new countertops. Thickness, overhang, and edge style are also important considerations.

Finishing Touches

Many people find that they end up renovating their entire kitchen when they initially began with just new countertops! While this may or may not be what you want to do, it is important to look at finishing touches, such as backsplashes, kitchen sinks, cabinetry, and more.


Finally, it’s important to evaluate the cost of kitchen countertops. New countertops can vary widely in costs. We hope you don’t find the best quartz countertops for your kitchen and then realize the cost is prohibitive, but this is part of why it’s important to pay attention to price from the beginning! Find a cost that works for you or save up more money before getting your new kitchen countertops.
