How much do kitchen countertops cost?
You might think that the most important part of your kitchen is your appliances. When it comes to preparing food, you might be right. But when it comes to creating the vibe that attracts eyes and makes you want to spend time in your kitchen — then it’s all about your countertops.
Countertops are the most common improvement in a kitchen remodel. Nine in 10 homeowners who update their kitchen opt for new countertops, and 35 percent of them splurge on the purchase, opting to spend more to really get the look they wanted, according to the Houzz 2022 U.S. Kitchen Trends Study.
That average cost to install new countertops ranges from $1,900 to $4,300, or $25-$120 a square foot, according to Home Advisor, but can easily soar as high as $8,000, depending on the material and measurements.
