3 Great Ways To Customize Your Kitchen Countertops

If you are in the process of creating your kitchen or redoing your kitchen, one of the best parts of the process is creating all of the customizations that are important to you. One area of your kitchen where you can really customize things is your countertops. This article will discuss 3 great ways that you can customize your kitchen countertops. 

Add A Backsplash

A backsplash is an excellent way to custom your kitchen countertops because it creates a piece that ties your countertops together with your cabinets. Because of this, you are going to want to use a backsplash that is going to go well with both. The backsplash will also do a great job of filling in this space of wall so that it doesn't look empty or unfinished. Tile is one of the most common materials to use when creating your backsplash because it is so versatile. It can be cut into almost an size or shape that you would like and can also be made to look so many different ways. To show off your backsplash even more, you can have under cabinet lighting added to your kitchen as well. 

Use A Unique Countertop Material

Rather than getting the traditional granite countertops, you can do something that isn't quite as common. You can go with concrete countertops if you are looking to create a more industrial look, or you could install glass countertops if you want your kitchen to look more modern and edgy. You could even create a very old-school type of look by creating your countertops out of petrified wood. Most of these materials are going to be long lasting and durable and will function very well for you as kitchen cabinets. 

Customize The Edging

Another excellent way to customize your countertops is to add custom edging. With traditional countertops, you are going to have the traditional flat edging that doesn't include any extra details. However, when you customize this, you are going to be able to add slightly rounded or completely rounded edges, beveled edges, or even more detailed edges such as a roman ogee that incorporates both square and rounded features. You could even come up with a design of your own and see if this would be possible for your contractor to create and install for you. This edging is going to make your countertops look even more classy and unique
