Most homeowners when queried about home renovation priorities will state their preference for either remodeling the kitchen or bathroom. The professionals at Kenneth C Lewis Cabinet Refinishing and real estate professionals alike know that the kitchen and the bathroom make the biggest impression on buyers. House presenters also know that making simple changes to either area can add much needed value to a seller's price.
If you are going to modify the kitchen, and you cannot do it all, start with the countertops. This will give you the most valued return on investment. Countertops come in a variety of materials, including laminate, solid surface, quartz, and natural stone. Make a simple and honest assessment of your kitchen. If you think your countertops look old or drab, those who visit your home think the same thing. Realize that replacing countertops does more than simply give a new look and feel to your counters. Your new countertops will flow with the cupboards, floor, and appliances.
Countertop remodeling is a bigger chore than most people realize. Typically, this involves the removal of the existing surface, disposal of old items, plumbing disconnect and reconnection, electrical work, color selection, sink and faucet selection, and more depending on the scope of your project. Is the thought of leaving this to the pros a welcome one?
For most people, the idea of new kitchen countertops is an exciting idea. They can spruce up a home, giving it the attractive feel of a new dwelling. This does not even have to be an exotic material, since any change will bring about a sense of anticipation and newness. Let's plan it together.
