Project Assessment

Choosing a kitchen countertop is one of the joys of remodeling, even if the entire remodel is nothing more than changing the kitchen countertop! At Elite Stone Fabrication we offer a process for making an assessment and choosing colors and stone types. Hopefully, this will help you work out some of the details of what will make an excellent countertop for your kitchen.

One of the first things to determine is whether the type of countertop you are interested in will best suit the kitchen. A careful assessment of the space, layout, and lighting of the kitchen area should be completed. For example, a dark countertop in a kitchen without natural light can be more dismal than dramatic.

When it comes to kitchen design, countertops are of prime focus. Ideally, the choice of the countertop should come before the cabinetry, the flooring, the lighting, or any other options within the kitchen designs. But, even during a remodel, the countertop can be matched to accommodate any situation. Countertops generate the most excitement in kitchen design.
