Are you ready to take your dream kitchen or bathroom design to the next level? We have three words for you: Custom. Fabricated. Countertops. There’s just one problem. Who can be trusted to do the job right? Well, our team at Bad Lizard Granite & Quartz, of course! Read on to learn more about the advantages of choosing our team for custom fabricated countertops.
WHAT ARE CUSTOM FABRICATED COUNTERTOPS?
In the market we operate in, there are essentially two categories of countertop to choose from –– prefabricated (pre-cut) or custom cut. Custom fabrication is constructed from an original countertop stone slab and fits your project specifications.
The difference between prefab and custom countertops boils down to the timing of a cut –– before or after. However, the quality, experience, and design freedom can amount to a profound distinction.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CUSTOM FABRICATED AND PREFABRICATED COUNTERTOPS
- Cut to pre-determined standard kitchen dimensions, appliances, and countertop shapes
- Assumes the placement of sink or dishwasher
- Wider seams and more visible when installed
- Available in limited color, grain, and grade of slab
- Cost less per square foot
- Often pre-cut overseas and shipped pre-cut to your countertop provider
Custom Fabricated Countertops
- Begins with a whole slab
- Cut by local stone fabricators to meet your kitchen’s unique dimensions and design
- Wider variety of color, grain, and slab grade
- Cost a little more per square foot
- Possesses a lower carbon footprint from local providers
TOP REASONS FOR CHOOSING CUSTOM FABRICATED COUNTERTOPS
A customer may select their home for many reasons, not the least of which includes personal style. Homeowners will often spend the rest of their life decorating, changing, and renovating items in the home to match their changing style or personality.
Reason 1: Uniqueness
Your kitchen has a unique flavor, style, and utility. There are an endless amount of homes, condos, and apartments that come in similar packages, standard dimensions, and functionality –– your home isn’t one of them. Your home reflects who you are and the things you value. Your countertops should match how you think, feel, and perform in the kitchen.
Reason 2: Variety
Unlike prefab designs, custom fabricated countertops enable you to choose from an array of colors and grains to match the kitchen of your dreams. Unfortunately, no one can truly guarantee that a pre-cut countertop will arrive as a direct match to its purchased site.
Reason 3: Higher Grade
Custom fabricated countertops grant consumers more options when deciding on a specific stone grade. Sadly, prefab counters already come in a preset selection of grades. If the stone grade you desire doesn’t come in the choice you want, oh well.
Reason 4: Flexibility
Whether it’s trying to plan for a large appliance, sink, or dishwasher, custom fabricated countertops allow you more freedom to prepare for its arrival. However, prefab cuts may not match your vision of a dream kitchen layout –– only custom countertops can fit a custom kitchen.
