Easy Upgrades (Part 1): High-End Countertop Solutions without the High-End Price Tag

Update Your Palm Harbor Rental Property with New Countertops in the KitchenThere is a saying that, “the kitchen is the heart of the home.” This probably stems from the fact that we spend an abundance of our time in the kitchen. Family and guests alike often go there even during events and gatherings. Its magnetic draw arises from the promise of warmth, good food, and a space to enjoy our friends and loved ones’ company.

It is no surprise that kitchens are prone to wear and tear because they are the most used areas in the house. Kitchen renovations can be expensive and upgrading the whole kitchen might not be the best option when budgets are tight. Instead of doing it all at once you can start with smaller upgrades that will make a huge difference in the functionality and visual appears of the kitchen for the time being, such as countertops.  So where should you start? With your countertops.

A beautiful countertop can boost not only the appearance of your Palm Harbor rental property but also its value. One of the items that draw potential residents towards a home is their beautiful and functional countertops, especially if they are looking for a long-term place. Not only are beautiful and durable surfaces a smart investment for the future of your rental property but it will also bring happiness to your residents and any of their guests.

So, will it be expensive to upgrade your countertops?

In the past, high-end countertops had a high-end price tag. This is evident in the older homes throughout Palm Harbor, as it has been observed that often their laminate or other countertop surfaces are cracking and peeling. Nowadays there are many options to get that high-end countertop appearance at an affordable price. Believe it or not, granite countertops could be an affordable choice, especially if you can purchase right from the manufacturer. Granite is common due to its durable, natural look and glossy surface.

Composite quartz is another popular option that is inexpensive and creative in style. It offers a wide range of colors that can brighten up the mood of the room. Solid surface composite is an engineered material that can be prepared to look like natural stone at a fraction of the price. Soapstone, travertine, marble, or other natural stones are expensive and can be difficult to get, however, a composite look-alike can offer the durability and aesthetic appeal that you want, and all of it can be attained at a reasonable price.
