We cut, polish, and install custom stone and glass countertops for clients throughout the Indianapolis area.
Improve Your Home’s Value… and Your Life!
Customers often ask us if custom countertops are worth the expense. Our answer: YES! According to daveramsey.com, 55% of homebuyers said they would have paid more for a home with granite counters. Furthermore, the national average return on investment for a minor kitchen remodel (including new counters) is 81%! And, even if you plan to stay in your home for years to come, investing in an attractive, quality kitchen is still worth the money. According to the 2021 US Houzz Kitchen Trends study, 88% of homeowners prioritized updating their counters during a remodel. Plus, nearly a third of those polled report having a healthier lifestyle as a result of the remodel, including increased opportunities for socializing and entertaining.
According to the 2021 Houzz survey, engineered quartz is the most popular material for upgraded countertops. Quartz is a popular choice because it is more affordable than natural stone. Additionally, quartz is durable, easy to care for, and comes in many colors and patterns. Granite is the second most popular countertop material of choice. Granite has a greater impact on the resale value of the home, and is preferred by many for its natural beauty and durability.
In addition to upgraded kitchen counters, contrasting kitchen islands are also on the rise. White is the top choice of color for countertops and kitchen islands, while one quarter of those polled prefer a contrasting color for the island. Glass countertops make for a great contrast to both granite and quartz countertops. Glass countertops come in many colors and textures and are incredibly durable. As such, they are completely customizable, giving you total creative freedom with your kitchen design.
