Here is an example of updating an aging kitchen with old stone counters. Not everyone who has older stone counters needs to change them! Although this homeowner was ready for a full remodel, we advised her to paint first, then decide about the counters. Well, it is crazy what one change can do for everything in the space! She was totally happy with it all, including the counters she was sure she had to rip out, but didn’t want to. This doesn’t work every time, but you’d be surprised!
