High-end countertops can transform your kitchen into a showplace. But they can also deplete your budget or savings if you’re not careful. It’s normal to want to jump headfirst into renovations as soon as a plan hits your brain, but there are easy and smart solutions for making a big splash with high-end countertops without breaking the bank.
- Follow Trends, But Consider the Future. Trends are great for today, but remember that mustard-yellow appliances were once all the rage. Chances are you don’t want those in your home right now. Trends can be expensive and end up being a total disappointment later. So consider options you can live with for a long time and may eventually add to the sale price of your home later.
- Decide Which Material You Want for Your High-End Countertops. Countertop materials are going to be the biggest expense for counter renovations, so choose the primary material carefully. Steel, butcher block, and even quartzite are popular choices today. But the higher costs also reflect that popularity. Granite, marble, and quartz are other options that should be considered for beauty, lower cost, performance, and dependability.
- Don’t Do It Yourself. Unless you’re an experienced contractor who’s completely bonded and insured, installing high-end countertops should never be a DIY or team project. Not only are these completed countertops expensive and heavy, they can also cause personal injury or further property damage if mishandled.
