In the average kitchen remodel, homeowners spend about ten percent of their budget on new countertops. This might be an area where you are tempted to cut costs: after all, laminate countertops were good enough for your old home.
The problem is that, for all the money you are saving by not opting for granite or quartz, in the end you are just borrowing from yourself, long-term. Not only do laminate countertops don’t last as long as stone ones, they are also more susceptible to heat, stain, or cutting damage. In the long term, choosing a granite or quartz countertop will be best for you budget because they will last a long time and you won’t have to spend money again on buying and installing new countertops.
Here are a few more reasons to go with a high-end countertop:
Granite and quartz are materials that last

Granite and quartz are incredibly durable materials that owe their popularity to both their versatility and look. It’s not just a trend: stone countertops can handle more punishment and are far, far more forgiving of kitchen accidents than laminate countertops.
Buyers want granite and quartz

Across the country, it’s a seller’s market. However, this doesn’t mean that buyers are fine with settling. If you are pairing cheaper laminate countertops with an otherwise renovated kitchen, there is a chance they will pass your listing by.
Keep the layout of your existing kitchen

Moving the sink to another wall or taking walls down, even changing electrical outlets to another location would be costlier than keeping the layout in place and only updating the kitchen parts that do not require a plumber or an electrician.
There are ways to save on new appliances

A great way to save on new appliances is to buy an appliance set when replacing all of the appliances. For example, choosing a one-piece range would be cheaper than purchasing a stove and an oven separately. One more way to save big dollars is to go check out the scratch and dent section in a number of appliance stores. There is a high chance you will find discounts such as 50 to 60 percent off on new appliances and the flaws will sometimes be barely noticeable.
