Countertops
« on: March 27, 2017, 03:11:59 PM »
This is just a general information question.

I know that it would be impossible to get an exact cost on this.

My better half has now replaced all of our appliances with  incredibly expensive stainless steel appliances and is now on the hunt for new "incredibly expensive" counter-tops!:(

We have one long counter that is L shaped.
10 foot long run with a 2 foot turn to the right.

There is a small counter area on the right side of the oven which is around 2 feet by 1 foot.

Of course .. she wants to go with quartz! :scared:

If my math is correct then the total area is around  22 square?

If there is a pro in here or if anyone has had a similar "Break The Bank" purchasing experience .. I would sure appreciate a 'ballpark' estimate of cost and thus .. How many more years must I trudge off to work at 4 in the morning? :sad:



Please, break it to me gently!

We've been looking at a complete kitchen remodel, and came to the conclusion cement is best, that is, if you don't mind taking on the project yourself.
You can make it look like marble, quartz or anything you want. There are tons of DYI videos on the subject.
I should have done it a few years ago, but now my heart says NO!, so we'll probably wind up having it poured on the spot by a professional.
Here's a butt load of pics at the link.
