As soon as you tell someone in conservation that you are remodeling your kitchen you will be given advice. It is human nature to try to help people out by sharing their previous experiences or opinions. However, sometimes you need to know what tips will help you and what ones you should avoid entirely.
Here are some examples of what people can tell you but it is not the best advice to listen to:
- Quartz is too expensive so choose another stone – False. Quartz is one of the less expensive stone options.
- Polished finish is the best choice to make – Matte is not a bad option. It will not show any etch marks that can come from acidic substances, such as spilled orange juice, like a polished surface will.
- Pick out the latest trends -You are likely to get tired of the fad in years to come.
- You don’t need to seal your countertop – Sealing the countertops will help with preventing staining. A good sealer can stand up to many tough stains.
One of the most stressful times in a homeowner’s life is when they are having a kitchen remodeled. To help reduce this stress, many friends and family try to help with advice. The best way to regard these unwanted tips is to remember that ultimately this is going to be the kitchen you use daily and you should do what is best for you. This way, you will have the kitchen that you want and not the one that your friends or family want.
