Try Granite Overlays For A Cheaper Countertop Alternative

Meal prep, storage, display area–in a kitchen, the counters are where the action happens. And that’s why picking a solid, durable countertop material is so important. Changing the look of your counters can not only alter their performance, but is also a great way to transform the look of your kitchen.

Granite has long been one of the top picks for countertops because it’s durable yet beautiful. Considered during past decades as a high-end, luxury material, granite is a bit more affordable now, but can still be a budget-breaker if you need a large amount.
If you crave the look of granite, try a granite overlay. It’s like a shell that’s installed over your existing countertop, so it’s not as thick as a granite slab. One of the biggest advantages to an overlay is that it’s much cheaper than a granite slab or even granite tiles.


Overlays are available in a wide array of colors and styles, so you should be able to find something that works with the look of your kitchen.
You can install a granite overlay yourself, although you may need a few extra people to help slide the overlay into place on top of the adhesive-covered counter. Before you begin, make sure the granite’s been properly sealed. If not, it will be much more prone to scratches and stains.
Would you opt for a granite overlay as a less expensive alternative to granite slabs?
