You see your kitchen countertops day in and day out, so of course you get used to how they look. But because you’re so accustomed to their appearance, you might need to know the signs that let you know they’re past their prime.
If you’re not sure about replacing your kitchen counters but think it might be time, look for signs like these:
Showing age isn’t always a bad thing, but it can be an eyesore for certain countertops. If your surface has become cracked, eroded, stained, burned, or discolored, you might need to start looking for a replacement. Sometimes, the damage that countertops experience over the years is just too substantial to be repaired.
Has your family grown recently? Maybe you welcomed a new baby or had your mother-in-law move in with you. If that’s the case, you might find yourself with less kitchen space than you’d like. The remedy is to replace your small kitchen countertops with something that gives you (and your new family member) some elbow room.
Even small fires can do worlds of damage to a kitchen countertop. It can be extremely difficult to repair smoke and fire damage, which makes replacement the best option most of the time. The good news is that most homeowner insurance policies cover this, so you can get a new countertop easily.
If you went all in for a trend that was hot twenty years ago, you may notice that it’s no longer in style. If you can’t stand the look of your kitchen countertops anymore, nothing is stopping you from replacing them. But if you’re not in the market to replace again down the road, we recommend going with something timeless like marble, granite, or quartz.
New countertops—especially stone countertops—will entice buyers. Buyers are looking for homes with brand new kitchen countertops, so you’re doing yourself a favor (and increasing the resale value of your home) by replacing your kitchen counters.
