3 Common Renovation Mistakes (Part 3)

Countertops:

An error in judgement is to install arborite counter tops. Home buyers are repelled by them it's one of the first things they notice. They immediately think ugly and quickly calculate how much it will cost to replace them. Note: They always calculate more than it would have cost you to install decent countertops in the first place.

Arborite also has a way of turning people right off. The property down the street sold because it had beautiful countertops, oh and a really great tile back splash. The property with the arborite countertops hasn't sold yet.

Solution: Choose current & good quality countertop materials. Quartz and granite are popular however be wary of colour choices since some may already be considered dated. Consult a professional designer, stager or kitchen consultant. Ask your realtor to point you in the right direction.
