Much has been written in the past about the process one must go through after they’ve decided to replace the countertop surfaces in their home. You have to compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of different types of materials, decide on a color scheme so that the new surface can match your existing (or new) decor and more. A topic that hasn’t been covered in nearly enough detail, however, is how you know when buying a new countertop surface is the right decision in the first place. If you fall into a few distinct categories, replacing the countertops in your kitchen or bathroom with new units is most certainly a journey worth taking.
If You’re Planning on Moving
If you’ve been in your home for quite awhile and are planning on moving in the next few years, getting new kitchen or bathroom countertops may seem like the absolute last thing you would want to do. However, it is most certainly an excellent opportunity for a remodeling project for one very important reason: new countertops will go a long way towards increasing the overall resale value of your home.
