How to Refresh Your Kitchen: Get a Countertop Makeover
Is your kitchen due for a makeover, but you don’t have the budget for a full remodel? For a simple and budget-friendly refresh of one of the most important rooms of your house, start with replacing your countertops!
Your cabinetry might benefit from a fresh coat of paint or refacing, but the biggest change would come from updating your countertop color, pattern and material.
It’s amazing what new countertops can do to update the look and function of your kitchen quickly and affordably. Since your countertops have such large, visible surface area, any change to them will make a substantial difference in the overall look for the room — not to mention add lasting value to your entire home!
How to Get Started
Begin by shopping online at a countertop supplier to get an idea of the look and tones that you like. You can also envision your dream kitchen without ever having to leave your home. Not sure where to start? Use our countertop comparison tool to see what material option works best for your lifestyle and intended application.
Our popular Room Visualizer is also useful for finding your ideal look without even leaving the couch.
Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a sales associate at the supplier to walk you through the whole process. This is where a good supplier will show you just how easy and cost-effective a countertop replacement can be! Plus, some countertop suppliers will allow you to budget your purchase throughout the upcoming year with financing options.
Don’t Forget the Accessories
When you visit a showroom, be sure to check out accessory items like sinks, faucets and decorative floor and wall tiles. These items are generally available in wide-ranging styles and price points. An update to these details alongside your countertop makeover can make a huge impact on your interior space.
So whether you’re a fan of granite with its bold patterning and timeless appeal or prefer manufactured quartz products with their unique colors and sophisticated designs, updating your countertops is a sure-fire way to breathe new life and excitement into your home’s kitchen.
