Are you itching to redesign your kitchen but not quite sure where to start? Why not start with replacing your countertops? It can change the appearance of your kitchen, making it look modern and luxurious.
We got you covered, and best of all -- you won't even have to break the bank! The tips below will help you plan for a kitchen countertop replacement on a budget.
Start by Outlining What’s Important for You
When you're remodeling your kitchen, it's important that you outline your priorities in advance. Prices typically get out of hand when people spend aimlessly without hashing out their goals upfront.
Factor in the return on investment (ROI) that you're hoping to get from your new countertops, and assess what type of work this would be required.
Type of Materials
Do some research into the kitchen countertop material that you prefer.
Some examples of kitchen countertop types that you might buy include marble, laminate, granite, quartz, concrete, and recycled glass. Each type gives off a different aesthetic and has varying longevity times and maintenance requirements.
Certain materials are also more valuable than others, which plays a role in building equity in your kitchen. Any tile store or general contractor can make recommendations and explain the differences.
Visit a showroom in person so that you can touch the materials. You can also search for materials providers that can sell you whatever you need.
Plan Your Budget Out Upfront
Do some research into how much it would cost for the countertop and labour to install it—also, factor into potentially replacing your sink. By budgeting in advance, you know how much you are willing and able to spend. Many homeowners go over budget simply because they didn't do enough planning in advance.
Once you have a budget, you're able to make an informed decision.
Find a Pro
The professionals that you hire will also dictate a lot about the price. They generally have labour rates locked in that they can quote you upfront.
Regardless of the prices they charge, make sure to never compromise quality. Get price quotes from a couple of countertop companies before making your decision.
