Shopping For Countertops

The following information is available as a PDF document. Please feel free to print it, answer the questions and send it back to us. Shopping For Countertops.


1. As far as the feel of the countertops, do I prefer a textured or a smooth surface?

2. Do I like the convenience that an integrated sink will add to my kitchen?

3. When it comes to color, do I like a solid option or do I prefer patterns like veins of complementing color throughout?

4. Is the material for the countertops a concern? Do I prefer material that is from a natural source or a man made type?

5. Do I prefer to use a separate cutting board or do I want the option to chop foods directly on the countertop?

6. Do I bake quite often and will need to roll dough on the countertops?

7. Will I need to be able to place hot pots on the counters without fear of damage?

8. Is staining an issue? Will I need to be concerned if certain liquids, like red wine, are spilled on the countertops?

9. Will I be ok with a type of countertop that will need to be resealed on a regular basis?
