Travertine $45 - 75

Reduce the Number of Cutouts Required

The less cutouts and angles the fabricator needs to incorporate into the stone, the lower the overall cost will be.

How Do the Options Compare in Terms of Resale Value?

Installing new countertops is a great way to increase the overall value of your home. When the time comes to sell, having the right countertops in the home can make quite the difference. Some materials will see a better return on investment than others.

When it comes to resale value, stone countertops are by far the better choice. The surfaces are much more attractive and durable than various other options. As far as color and style go, it is in your best interest to choose neutral colors and styles if you intend to sell your house in the near future. Many future homeowners do not want the burden of a countertop that is considered out of style, so choosing neutral tones and styles will help you play it safe.

Countertop cost is influenced by many different factors. As you can tell from the information above, the material you choose can have a significant impact on the overall cost of your home remodeling project. While cost should not be the only factor that guides you to your countertop decision, it inevitably plays a major role in the process for many homeowners. You will want to find something that is both within your budget and that you will enjoy for many years to come.

If you need to stretch your budget slightly in order to get the countertops you truly want, it is advisable to do so. As long as it is a reasonable stretch, you are much better off paying a little more for a beautiful and durable countertop rather than selecting a material simply because it is cheap. Considering that you will have these countertops in your home for years, you want to pick the best option for your home. Reviewing the information provided in this guide can help you along the way to choosing a great new countertop for your home.
