Why change your countertop?

This is a common question I hear as couples are discussion options in our showroom. Often a couple will come in and one person doesn't want to change while the other person does. There are a couple of easy answers that come to mind.

1) To increase the value of my home

It's no secret that the best way to increase your home's value is to rennovate the kitchen and/or bathroom. Since getting a facelift on your cabinets is so inexpensive these days it's an excellent time to put in a countertop with a wow factor. One of the first things people notice when viewing a house is how great a nice kitchen can look. The type of customer working to increase the value of their home will typically go for one of our sale granites. They look great and are quite inexpensive. They will typically pick a colour that blends in very well and won't offend any potential buyers because everything matches perfectly.

2) To create a look that you want to come home to

Let me elaborate: When you buy a house that you know you're going to live in for some time it is important that it looks the way you want it to. The previous owner may have had different tastes and since you're going to spend the next 10-20 years there, it's a great opportunity to create a space that you enjoy coming home to every day. These types of customers will typically pick something more exotic that is suited to their specific tastes.

Which answer is correct? I guess it depends on which picture you like the best.
