Kitchen Tip: Redoing the counters
When it comes to revamping the counters plan to spend a good portion of your budget here. Countertops are a large contributor to the functionality of your kitchen and must be able to withstand abuse. Popular marble options and other natural stones often require a lot of maintenance, which is a lot of additional cost on top of an already sizable price tag. That is why quartz is highly recommended, because it is available in a variety of colors and is virtually indestructible. In other words, it’s a lasting investment.
If your budget doesn’t allow for quartz counter-tops then consider laminate counter-tops from IKEA or similar stores the sell pre-cut counters with a simple profile. If IKEA and similar stores aren’t available to you then consider source cut-offs. Many fabricators keep cut-offs from recent projects and sell them at a low cost.
