Due to high demand, granite counter tops have become standard in most new homes. Though beautiful, it is worth it to upgrade the builder’s standard to a look that won’t become quickly dated. The latest trend in counter tops will become the future’s basic must-have.

Another area to upgrade in the kitchen is the cabinetry. Make sure to choose a high grade material in a contemporary color. Also, consider drawers instead of open shelving. They are easier to use, hold more, and are very appealing to potential buyers.
