Paint to Impress Home Buyers
Cabinets and countertops represent the perfect marriage of form and function unless your cabinet and countertops are stuck in a 1980s time warp. Bringing them up to date could be a fine investment, one that could make your kitchen, bathroom and even garage and laundry room more efficient as well as sexier. Figuring the cost should start with priorities. If you really want to make a big splash with granite countertops, you might want to cut back on the cabinets, maybe just refacing or resurfacing instead of replacing them. Or perhaps you want to invest in sturdy, updated quality custom cabinets and settle for a tasteful but inexpensive laminate countertop. Trade-offs can be important when trying to work within your budget.
