A photo can help you get a better idea of how you can expect a product to look. However, when it comes to choosing your new kitchen countertops, you don’t want to rely on just the pictures. To help you select the right countertop material for your home in King of Prussia, Blue Bell, Wayne, and West Chester, it’s best to see the slab in person.
Learn more about why it’s important to see your countertop slab in person in Villa Marble & Granite’s detailed guide below.
Why You Need to See Countertop Slabs
While you can use pictures to help you narrow down your options, seeing slabs in person will make it easier for you to choose the best one for your kitchen. That’s because photos may not provide the most accurate details of the countertop material.
Depending on the lighting used, photos of slabs can look darker or lighter than the actual thing. Also, you won’t be able to see the intricate details and veining as clearly as you would when you’re looking at it in person. Plus, pictures won’t be able to show you how they look with the different finishes available.
When you take the time to see a slab in person, not only will you be able to get a better look at its designs and finish, but it’ll also show you how well a specific countertop will fit into your kitchen remodel.
Other Factors to Consider When Selecting Countertops
In addition to checking out how each slab looks in person, you’ll also want to take the time to consider things like durability and maintenance, so that you can select the best countertop for your kitchen.
For example, if your kitchen is one of the busiest areas of your home, you should take a look at strong materials such as granite, marble, and quartzite. Not only do these natural stones provide elegance and sophistication to the room, but they can also resist scratches, heat, and other types of kitchen wear and tear.
If you’re interested in something that may not require a lot of maintenance, quartz is a great option. This manmade material is non-porous, which means it can resist stains and etching well. It also doesn’t need to be sealed regularly to preserve its condition.
