When you dream of replacing the counter tops in your kitchen, what do you picture? The practical surface that comes to my mind is a stone surface, as it will last for years. Quite a few years ago, we redid our kitchen, and did so with the old style surface that is easily marred with a knife during those times when I or other members of the family are too lazy to take out a cutting board and cut on the counter surface. It is times like this when quartz worktops or a granite counter top would be a perfect solution.
We are torn right now between doing a little fixing up and selling our home or doing more extensive work and staying put. It is a decision being forced by the fact that retirement years are closing in on us. Though I don't live in the UK, the site in the earlier link did provide me with some affordable ideas. I did learn a bit about the different types of granite and stone. And I do think that doing a simple thing like replacing the counter tops in the kitchen would be a good thing to do whether we move or stay put. It adds value to the home, and pleasure while preparing meals.
Yes, I do think an upgrade of our kitchen counter top is going to happen in the near future.
