When you've finally become a homeowner and can customize your spaces however you want, it's easy to get overwhelmed with all of the choices. Do you want carpet or hardwood in the living room? Should your refrigerator have an ice maker, or keep separate trays in the freezer? Unlike when you rent apartments or live with other people, the choice is completely yours as to what your space looks like. Many people opt for renovating their kitchen first, as it's a "practical renovation".
Whether or not you're intent is to become a chef, renovating your kitchen and putting granite countertops in is a smart decision. It improves the value of your home financially from a livable perspective, and the only downside you might find is the upfront cost. But even that lowers year after year, and you get what you pay for with home renovations. Let us convince you that quartz countertops and more will be worth the effort you put into them because they will make you a happy homeowner.
Materials That Last
If you've decided to replace your countertops with granite or quartz, then we're going to applaud you for making a popular choice. In a survey that was recently done revealed that 40 percent of homeowners favored countertops made out of quartz (engineered) for their current or planned kitchen renovation. The most likely reason for this is that quartz and granite both look amazing no matter what style your home has and they both last for an extremely long time. Since they're real stone, even if they get scuffed up or cosmetically damaged they can always be rebuffed and touched up by a stone finishing professional. When you have these types of countertops, you're making an investment in your home!
Aesthetically Pleasing = Valuable
No matter what type of home decoration or architecture magazine you open up, you're bound to see granite or quartz countertops in the most elegant homes.
