If you’re tired of your old kitchen, but your budget just won’t allow you to do a full-scale gut and remodel, you still have a number of options. There are a number of smaller projects that can give your kitchen a substantially new look and feel.
Deciding on the focus of a smaller project will largely depend upon whatever motivated you to do something in the first place. Are your appliances wearing out or are you simply tired of the appearance of your kitchen? Replacing old appliances can quickly eat up a small budget without substantially changing your kitchen’s appearance (unless you are replacing Harvest Gold, Coppertone or Avocado colored appliances). The least expensive changes you can make that will substantially alter the appearance of your kitchen are the floor, wall covering, back splash and countertops.
At Cabinet Discounters we have helped people for over 25 years to make a huge difference in the appearance of their kitchen with a relatively inexpensive countertop replacement. Let’s face it, the part of your kitchen that you look at the most is the countertop. If the old top is not exactly the color you would have chosen or if years of usage have left it scratched, or in the case of Formica burned by hot cookware, it is an easy fix that will have a huge impact on your kitchen’s appearance.
Cabinet Discounters’ manufacturing division, Creative InCounters in Mt. Airy, MD, custom manufactures your countertops in natural Granite, Quartz surfaces (Silestone, Cambria, Caesarstone, Meganite, and Zodiaq), and solid surfaces such as Corian.
The process is quick and very easy with little interruption in your household routine. Our team of professionals can measure and template without disturbing you old countertop at all. Using specially designed digital equipment, very precise measurements are taken and input in the computer at our factory. Sophisticated CAD-CAM systems drive the equipment which actually cut out your new countertop. You can see the whole process. The tear-out and replacement is usually accomplished in only one day, thus minimizing any interruption to your family’s routine. Of course, you may need to allow extra time for any electrical or plumbing work.
The cost will vary, of course, with your selection of material and the size and complexity of your existing kitchen. Bring your measurments in to one of Cabinet Discounters’ showrooms and we can show you your many options and give you a price quote with no cost or obligation in any way. You might be surprised at how big a change a new countertop will make in your kitchen’s appearance and how affordable it really is.
