Consider Design and Aesthetic Appeal

Porcelain countertops come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and finishes, allowing you to find the perfect match for your home’s overall design and aesthetic. We recommend considering the style and theme of your kitchen or bathroom to ensure that everything is cohesive. For customers who want a minimalist design, choose solid-colored countertops. But if you want more edge, find porcelain that mimics natural stones. No matter what design you choose, select one that resonates with your personal style and enhances the overall ambiance of the room.

Access Durability and Maintenance

Porcelain is known for being highly durable, making it resistant to scratches, stains, and heat. When you are considering various styles and sizes of porcelain countertops, be sure to evaluate the material's durability and maintenance requirements. We recommend looking for countertops that have a high hardness rating as this can reduce the wear and tear after years of use. Other considerations include resistance to chipping, cracking, and UV radiation if you plan on installing porcelain countertops on outside kitchens or where there is high exposure to sunlight.

If you are considering porcelain for your countertops, discuss with 5280 Stone about the maintenance required for this type of porcelain. Understanding the maintenance that comes with porcelain will help you decide if this is the best option for your kitchen or bathroom.

Evaluate Cost and Value

The cost of porcelain can vary based on numerous factors, including brand, design, thickness, and size. Prior to shopping for countertops, 5280 Stone recommends determining your budget and considering various options. While it may be tempting to opt for a cheaper option, it’s best to invest in high-quality porcelain as it will improve its longevity and won’t need as much maintenance later. Cheaper porcelain will need to be replaced faster as they become damaged faster, resulting in a higher overall cost. Once you begin shopping consider the return on your investment and the lifespan you want from your porcelain countertops.

It can always be stressful when choosing countertops. What if this material isn’t truly the best? Or what if I buy this style, but it actually doesn’t fit with the overall aesthetic of my home?
