We often see beautiful kitchens of proper size and shape in promotional photos. They look lovely, and they easily tempt us to remodel our kitchen with custom Countertop. Unfortunately, not all kitchens come in standard sizes, nor are their layouts conventional square. There are a lot of kitchens that have unique shapes and sizes, which require particular planning and materials. In this blog post, we will explore the potential challenges with unique kitchen layouts and take a look at what Landmark Surfaces can do for you to tackle the problem.

Challenges With Unique Kitchen Layouts with Countertop
Non-standard kitchens create a lot of problems including angled corners, asymmetrical shapes, unusual size requirements…etc. These fundamental problems lead to several practical challenges. Some of the most typical ones are as follows:
- Limited space
- Odd corners and angles
- Non-standard appliance sizes
- Uneven surfaces and walls
Challenging kitchen space is not the end of the world, but it requires elaborate planning and coordination when it comes to remodeling or replacing the appliances in your home. Most professional contractors or dealers will help you with possible adaptations you might need during the projects.
Custom countertops are excellent solutions for those having an unusual kitchen space. Since a non-standard kitchen size and shape allow for only limited aesthetics and functionality, homeowners often find them as life-saving additions to their kitchens. Thanks to custom countertops, you can improve the storage spaces, fit the other kitchen appliances properly while maximizing the kitchen space, and achieve a seamless aesthetic beauty in your kitchen.
Custom countertops are made just for your kitchen. So, they tend to be more expensive than fixed-sized slabs. Also, the installation requires professional help. It is usually not a DIY job.
What Can Landmark Do for You?
Unique kitchen layout requires both aesthetic and functional adaptations. Landmark Surfaces, a leading fabricator and installer of natural and engineered stones in Virginia, Maryland, and DC is here to help you with countertops.
At Landmark Surfaces, we try hard to provide our customers with the most functional and aesthetic kitchen design. So, we consider both space utilization and design flexibility. Although most of our customers having non-standard kitchens ask for custom countertops from us, we do not sell them straight away. Instead, we take some time to find the best design adaptations for each kitchen. Then, we discuss the potential countertop alternatives (material, size, shape…etc) with our customers. If you simply search “custom porcelain countertops near me”, you will only find a porcelain countertop. However, replacing your existing countertop with another might fail to meet your expectations. Therefore, we handle the problem considering many factors together.
For example, depending on the unique kitchen layout and related problems, we might focus on the shape of the counter, storage options, cooking and safety, alternative countertop materials, multi-level design, dining and seating arrangement…etc.
As Landmark Surfaces, we believe that having a unique kitchen layout is not necessarily bad. Sometimes, our customers can turn their non-standard kitchen into an advantage. They can have a larger cooking area, cozier dining area, well-organized storage, or multi-leveled countertop or kitchen island.
All in all, if you have a nonconventional kitchen layout, you are always welcome at Landmark Surfaces. We will find the most feasible option for you. You can call us now, or drop by today. We have stores in Chantilly, Fredericksburg, and Alexandria.
