Easy Upgrades (Part 1): High-End Countertop Solutions without the High-End Price Tag

Update Your Grand Rapids Rental Property with New Countertops in the KitchenPeople frequently say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. This saying arises from the fact that we devote a great deal of time in our kitchens, and even during events and get-togethers, guests and family regularly gravitate there. Its magnetic draw arises from the promise of good food, warmth, and a space to enjoy our friends and loved ones’ company.

When the kitchen begins to show some wear, it could be time to upgrade. Remodeling a whole kitchen is pricey and might not be the best option. However, there are smaller improvements, like the countertops, that can make a large difference in the aesthetic appeal and functionality of one of the most essential rooms in the home.

Beautiful countertops can boost the value and appeal of a Grand Rapids rental home way past the investment cost. A lot of prospective residents will search for a house that offers both functionality and beauty, particularly if they are planning to remain for several years. Beautiful, durable surfaces are a smart investment in the future of your rental home and in the happiness of your residents.

In the past, high-end countertops had a high-end price tag. Plenty of older houses around Grand Rapids reflect this fact, as they usually have laminate or other countertop surfaces that start to peel and crack with time. But, nowadays, there are means to get that high-end countertop appearance at a reasonable price. Believe it or not, granite countertops can be an inexpensive option, especially if you can buy straight from the manufacturer. Granite is popular due to its glossy surface and robust, natural look.

Composite quartz is another popular option that is finance-friendly and provides a range of colors that could brighten up a room with ease. Solid surface composite is an engineered material that can be made to appear like a natural stone at a fraction of the price. Soapstone, travertine, marble, or other natural stones are costly and can be hard to maintain. But, a composite look-alike can offer the durability and aesthetic appeal you want, all at a practical price.

At Real Property Management Investment Solutions, we have the industry relationships to update your countertops rapidly and at an affordable price. Your Grand Rapids residents are certain to be thrilled with the results. Would you like to know more? For further information, please contact us online or call us at 616-419-8880.
