There's a reason why the kitchen is referred to as the heart of the home. It's is the space where you spend a lot of time in, whether you're cooking, hosting, or working on the kitchen island. It makes sense to invest time and money into renovating your kitchen, and a good place to start is by upgrading your countertops. Here are the top reasons why you should renovate your kitchen countertops.
According to Houzz, a significant portion of homeowners who are renovating focus on major kitchen features like countertops, sinks, and backsplashes during their kitchen remodels (88%, 83%, and 80%, respectively). A kitchen remodel is incomplete without upgrading your countertops. It's an improvement that increases your property's value, especially if you select high-end options like marble and granite. If you plan to sell your home, new, beautiful, and durable kitchen countertops can be a big selling point.
Aesthetics are important in a kitchen but only when paired with functionality. If you have old countertops in your kitchen, they will detract from the appearance of your kitchen and affect the way you use the space. For instance, you might hesitate to use your current countertops because they stain easily, and the stains are difficult to wipe off. Damaged countertops can be frustrating to look at and work on. Instead, design new and durable countertops to fit your desired layout and streamline the way you do things in your kitchen. They will restore functionality while enhancing the appeal of your kitchen.
As mentioned, old countertops have a tendency to stain, and this means you have to invest more time and energy into keeping your countertops looking neat. It's not easy trying to clean a countertop with a lot of scratches and chips where dirt and bacteria can hide. When replacing your kitchen countertops, you can choose a low-maintenance option that makes life easier for you. Materials such as granite are not only durable but are also easy to keep clean. In addition, you have the option to refinish your countertops to keep them looking brand new.
