Counter Top Refinishing: Money Saving Ideas

Contemporary White Kitchen

Updating the look of your home does not always have to involve expensive and time-consuming demolition and construction of your existing fixtures. If you have tile, laminate, or marble countertops that have seen better days, consider refinishing them instead of replacing them. Counter top refinishing can be completed for a fraction of the cost of replacement and refinished counter tops are ready to use much faster.

Counter top refinishing is a process whereby professionals come and remove scratches and other imperfections that have befallen your counters over time. They then apply a new layer of material to your counters. This layer can come in a variety of designs and can even be made to look like granite or other kinds of stone. Finally, a clear protective coating is generally applied to keep the new surface looking new for many years to come.

As a general rule, choosing to refinish your existing counter tops costs about half what it would cost to replace them. The refinishing process takes about a day and your counter tops are ready for you to use about two days after the process has been finished. Saving money by choosing to refinish your counter tops instead of replacing them can leave plenty of money to upgrade your appliances. A high-end refrigerator or a new oven can do wonders to modernize an older kitchen and can be a wiser investment than replacing your counter tops. Or, consider using the money you save on refinishing to update your kitchen lighting, replace your flooring, or perhaps just throw a dinner party for your friends and family.

Whether you are primarily motivated by saving money or saving time, counter top refinishing can be a great solution to your kitchen or bathroom remodeling needs. Knowing you have successfully updated the look of your home without spending a fortune will help you rest easy and enjoy your space even more than you already do, which is one of the things being a homeowner is all about.
