If you are looking for inexpensive countertop ideas, you may be surprised by what you find. Believe it or not granite has become one of the more affordable options for countertops, even comparable to laminate, Formica or Corian. Granite prices have dropped significantly in the past years, making stone countertops an affordable way not only to enhance the appearance, but increase the value of your home!
Granite is available in different levels ranging from 1-5+ typically. One is the lowest and five is the highest. The more rare, exotic or difficultly to mine the stone, the higher the level and cost. However, it is very easy to find level one or two granite that is both affordable and beautiful. There is not necessary a difference in quality of the stone depending on the level.
Want another of our inexpensive countertop ideas? Using a granite backsplash is also a good way to save money. Instead of using a full tile backsplash in a room, you can use a 4” piece of granite along the wall. Typically this will save you a few hundred dollars, versus having a tile professional install a backsplash.
Carolina Countertops does not believe in “add-ons” to increase the price or other gimmick advertising. What you see is what you get in your quote. We do not charge for additional items like some other companies do for edges, sink cut-outs, disposal of material etc. So, be careful if you are shopping and make sure you receive the final number! Carolina Countertops offers a variety of standard edges. You will only pay extra if you select an ogee (which is a double edge cut). The only additional cost is plumber reconnect and we can handle this as well.
