Upgrade Your Compact Kitchen with Luxurious Natural Stone Counters  

Congratulations! You paid off the mortgage on your small yet smart condo! Its compact kitchen never truly inspired you to spend more time mastering recipes, but the builder-grade finishes did their job. Now it is time to reinvest in your property! Reward your smart money habits by splurging on some kitchen upgrades that will really make a difference.

Downsizing Does Not Mean Downgrading

Just because you have a galley kitchen or one tucked into a corner of a small apartment does not mean that it should be unimpressive. Look into custom finishes that make you smile while also improving the function of the space. Ask your kitchen designer about smart storage solutions, built-in stepladders, and hidden lights that put your food prep skills on show.

Select an Opulent Stone Slab that Sparks Your Interest

The item on your kitchen renovation list that will make the biggest visual impact is your countertop. Natural stone slabs feature unique blends of color and texture that truly breathe life into a static space. Find one with active veining or a myriad of tiny sparkles. Have an edge cut into the stone that reflects the shapes featured in your custom cabinets. Every morning you will smile when your fingers trace its subtly textured surface.

Invest in New Smart Appliances and Tools

Now that you have the counters looking smart, make sure that your appliances are also up to the job. Look into combination toaster ovens and microwaves to leave a more open workspace. Control your intelligent dishwasher with your smartphone and set it to run after you have gone to bed. Upgrade your refrigerator to one with an interior camera and internet connectivity. Check whether you have any eggs before you leave your office. A pop-up coffee maker cabinet allows you to hide your morning caffeine and reclaim needed counter space.

Consider a Rolling Island to Expand Capability Inside and Outside

Are you constantly turning your small kitchen table into a buffet, drink station, or simply a place to put the pie pan while you chop apples? Swap out your table for a versatile rolling island with folding leaves. Finish it off in a matching granite top. Now you have somewhere to eat, but it can also do double duty on your patio or in the living room while you have a little more breathing space to prepare a holiday feast.
