Cabinets Plus Design Blog
My kitchen is about 15 years old and I have laminate countertops. Would replacing the countertop with a more substantial surface be the best investment?
Because countertops show the most use in the kitchen all types of products are available that provide a good long-term investment. However, new countertops as well as new flooring, backsplash tile, painting cabinetry, etc. can be deceiving and more of a quick fix. If there are things in your kitchen that you would change if you could “start from scratch” chances are someone else would too. Say for instance you have an L shaped kitchen with a peninsula bar and an island would open the area up. Do not put new flooring or countertops in. Look into the cost of redesigning the entire area. If your appliances are dated or you really wish you had a separate oven and cook top, now is the time. Once you do certain upgrades it is cost prohibited to rethink later. We will gladly come to your home and explain all options that we see available in a space. It cannot hurt and could be the best investment you could have made!
