If you're in the process of tackling some home renovation projects, now's the time to get those new countertops you've been dreaming about. Adding new countertops can breathe new life into an old home. Your new countertops can also be a starting place for other remodeling projects. If you're still not sure that now's the right time for new counters, here are four reasons that just might change your mind:
Your Old Counters are Beyond Repair
Are you tired of covering up the ugly spots on your counters whenever you have guests? Or, have the ugly spots gotten so big that you simply can't cover the damage up anymore? If you answered yes to either of those questions, you really need new counters. Damaged counters can ruin the entire look of your home, and make you embarrassed to have friends over. Stop hiding the damage, and start inviting your friends back. Install the new cabinets you've been wanting.
You're Getting New Cabinets
If you're having new cabinets installed in your home, make it a package deal and replace the counter tops too. You might think that you're saving money by keeping the original counters, but since they have to be removed to install the new cabinets, you may as well have them replaced at the same time. When the project is finished, you'll have a whole new kitchen.
You're Selling Your Home
If you're going to be selling your home in the next few months, increase its value by installing new countertops. In today's real estate market, you need all the help you can get, especially if you're already living in an area where the market is saturated. Adding new countertops may be just what you need to impress the prospective buyers, and get your home sold fast. Don't stop in the kitchen though. Add new counters and vanities in your bathrooms too.
You're Planning Holiday Get-Together's
The holidays will be here before you know it. If your kitchen is lacking in the counter space you need, it's time to install new counters. While you're at it, have an entirely new kitchen island installed. You'll be able to prepare your holiday feasts on brand new counters, and use your new island at the same time.
Stop denying yourself those new kitchen counters. Talk to your contractor about updating the counters in your home. You'll be reaping the benefits in no time.
