Marble, no doubt, is beautiful and can go with almost any decor in your McCormick Ranch Home for sale. Many people remodeling their bathrooms consider marble for the floor or wall tiling or even for the vanity countertops.
The problem is marble is expensive, and you might not want to spend that much, especially if you’re thinking of selling your McCormick Ranch home. Marble is also high maintenance when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. So many homeowners are going with cheaper alternatives.
Use laminate material
Imitation is easy with modern technology. Instead of marble, think about a laminate countertop for your McCormick Ranch home for sale. It’s cheap, durable, and looks just as nice as marble. It may not feel the same but it certainly looks the same. Laminate is also easy to clean and very affordable. A 32 square feet sheet will cost about $100---this should be plenty to cover your bathroom countertops. Laminate is also easy to cut and install on your countertops.
Marble imitation quartz
If you’re going to spend a lot of money on natural stone for a countertop for your McCormick Ranch home for sale, it’s better to get quartz rather than marble. Quartz is cheaper, easier to clean and maintain than marble. You probably won’t notice the difference either.
Quartz, though, is more expensive than laminate but it can still be affordable for small areas such as bathrooms. Quartz is also nonporous so won’t collect bacteria or mold. All you need to do is clean it.
Paint your old countertop
Believe it or not, you can paint what looks like a marble countertop. A marble painting technique has been developed by a blogger through Gorgeous Shiny Things. But it’s a do-it-yourself project. If done right, most people won’t be able to tell the difference.
Granite is expensive but some cheaper varieties can be a good compromise for the authentic marble look. Granite can be a good choice if you don’t have a large surface to cover. Many countertop companies even have some look-alike granite options. Granite is also much easier to clean and maintain than marble.
Concrete can be used to get a marble look if you’re willing to do-it-yourself. The benefits of painting your own marble include controlling the color as well as the veining and depth. You can also adapt it to match other features of your bathroom at your McCormick Ranch home for sale.
So, while you may not want to spend the money on marble, you can always go with a cheaper alternative.
