Renovating a kitchen, bathroom or the entire home is a big cost for most families. If upgrading to marble countertops is something the Farmington, MN homeowners want, there are some important considerations when weighing the cost of this material with the lower cost options on the market.
While the initial cost of marble is more than many of the options found in home renovation blogs, television shows and even at big box home supply stores, there are some essential factors to keep in mind that goes beyond a simple price per square foot amount.
Durability and Life
When adding marble to any room in a Farmington, MN home, either as a countertop or as a floor, it is a lifetime addition to the home. This is not a material that will need to be replaced for the duration of the time the family lives in the home, or as long as the house is standing.
This is not an overstatement of the durability and life cycle of marble countertops. There are marble buildings and structures that have been around since the beginning of time and still offer the natural beauty and appeal of this natural stone.
Style and Value
There is no substitute for the style and the classic look of marble countertops. There are imitation products out there that look somewhat like marble, but when placed side by side the difference is obvious to anyone.
Adding a marble counter to any kitchen or bathroom creates that timeless look. It is also a feature that will directly impact the value of the home, making the house easier to sell and even adding to the asking price in most areas.
When looking at the price of marble, keep these factors in mind. This is an investment in your home and one that you will not regret once you have completed the renovation.
