Select the desired countertop material based on the use and aesthetics you want to achieve. Consult with a professional for advice if needed.
Measure the space for the countertop, allowing an inch and a half for overhang where required. Leave room for adjustments, such as for the sink.
Use your measurements to cut the appropriate size countertop material. Remove cabinet drawers to make installation easier.
Lay the countertop material, ensuring that it fits well on the desired location. Shim any necessary areas, and check that the countertop is level.
Use the manufacturer’s preferred adhesive to fix the countertop in place. Be sure to use temporary sealant, in addition to a stronger adhesive, for granite countertops. Use a silicon adhesive when attaching granite to wood.
Use color matching silicone to seal the seams once the countertop has been secured into place. Check that the surface is level. Gently knock the higher side into place if needed. Spray the surface with a spray sealant for a final seal.
