The kitchen is arguably the most social room in a house because it provides a hub for families and friends to get together and learn a little bit more about each other. Whether it’s to cook Thanksgiving dinner, to pile up chips and salsa for Sunday Football, or just to make a simple PB&J, it’s important for your kitchen to be comfortable and inviting. One of the easiest ways to bring new life to your kitchen is to have your countertops professionally refinished.
What are the Benefits of Countertop Refinishing?
Refinishing can save 70% over the cost of a full countertop replacement. Most of the time, repairs needed to improve countertops are purely cosmetic. So if the structure is sound all you have to do is resurface your countertops in order to bring an updated look to your kitchen at a fraction of the cost.
Refinished countertops update the look of your kitchen. For example, Flint-Stone coatings provide you the modern look of stone or granite countertops without the expensive price-tag. The coatings also come in a variety of colors so you won’t have any trouble matching the existing decor of your kitchen.
What is the Process Behind Countertop Refinishing?
Three coats of polyurethane are applied to the cleaned and prepped surface of the countertop. Worried about the mess? Cabinets, backsplash, fixtures, and the floor are covered to ensure they are protected. Additionally, scratches, nicks, and chips within the countertop are fixed through the refinishing process making them look brand new.
The refinishing process is minimal compared to the disturbance a full replacement would cause. Countertop refinishing takes only one day versus the possible weeks a full replacement would require so there is also less mess and less inconvenience for you and your family.
The goal is to provide the best outcome with as little disturbance as possible to your everyday life. By implementing professional countertop refinishing, it will change the whole feel of your kitchen, cost you much less than a replacement, and make your kitchen the focal point of your home once again.
