When to Choose a Prefabricated Countertop

There’s no better feeling than remodeling your kitchen or bathroom and getting to choose every feature down to the very last stud. From cabinet hardware and lighting fixtures to appliances and countertops, you have a lot of choices to make. But with so many decisions, designing a kitchen or bathroom can seem overwhelming. Instead of stressing about which countertop is the best for your home, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why you should choose prefabricated countertops over any other option on the market.

If you’re questioning whether you should opt for granite counters, quartzite countertops, or prefabricated counters, here are five reasons to choose prefabricated countertops.


The costs of a home renovation quickly add up. While there are times you can compromise quality, your countertops aren’t one of those places. Luckily for you, prefabricated countertops offer a high-end look without costing an arm and a leg. Because prefabricated countertops are precut and manufactured in large quantities, the cost stays at a much more reasonable level than custom-cut countertops. This makes them the ideal option for a standard-sized bathroom or kitchen countertops.


When you close your eyes and picture your kitchen or bathroom, what do you see? Prefabricated countertops allow you to get exactly what you’re looking for without compromising the quality of your countertops! Both custom cut and prefabricated counters are created from natural stone — the only real difference is the custom or set fit of the countertop. When you are working with standard measurements, you can opt for prefabricated countertops made from high-quality natural stone.


Because prefabricated countertops are cut from natural stone, they are extremely easy for homeowners to maintain. Due to their non-porous finish, you can have peace of mind knowing that your countertops won’t need to be sealed continuously to guard them against stains and damage caused by spills. A simple wipe down with a gentle countertop cleanser will keep them looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.


When designing a new kitchen or bathroom, there’s a lot of anticipation around the big reveal! If you are having custom-cut countertops made for the space, the estimated timeframe may talk longer than you’d like because there are additional steps added to the process. With prefabricated countertops you can expect easy installation because the slabs don’t need to be cut down to a specific size — they’ll seamlessly fit into your existing space.


A common misconception is that when you go the prefabricated countertops route, you have a smaller selection of colors and designs to select from. However, that’s not the case! With prefabricated countertops, you have a wide variety of countertop patterns and colors to choose from that will help you transform your kitchen or bathroom dream into a reality. No matter your desired aesthetic, you’ll be able to find a prefabricated countertop option that works within your space.
