If you refinish kitchen countertops, you could save money on your remodel.

Looking for an inexpensive but attractive alternative to replacing your dated kitchen countertops entirely? Refinishing might be your best option.


Explore These Beautiful Kitchen Countertop Design Options for Ideas!

Refinishing your existing counters can give you a fresh, updated look—at a fraction of the cost (do-it-yourselfers estimate the cost between $300 and $600).

There are several ways to completely transform your current laminate surfaces on the cheap. While (relatively) quick and painless fixes include painting the countertops in a faux granite pattern, or even adding on a sheet of laminate overlay (think granite- or metallic-like finishes) that sticks on to your existing counters, one of the most stylish options is refinishing or redoing kitchen countertops.

To refinish kitchen countertops, you'll first want to make any repairs to the existing surface (chips, nicks or stains) by filling them in with an epoxy putty or by sanding down the stain. Consider looking into countertop transformation kits available at home improvement stores, which typically include paint and protective finishes and other materials the project requires.

Expect the process to take anywhere from a weekend to a week, depending on the amount of surface. Don't discount hiring a professional to help—it may cost a little more, but it should cut down on the scope of the your personal time and involvement.
