Do you need to replace the countertops, or does the whole thing need to go? Either way, it’s a big commitment, not only in time, but of money as well as the inconvenience that comes with undertaking any remodeling project.
Of course, the benefits are well worth it in the end. You get a beautiful kitchen designed to fit your lifestyle. Seriously consider your options when looking at any remodeling project.
