Hamilton housing market, like the rest of the country, is on the rise. It should be no massive surprise that home owners don’t mind spending a few thousand on ‘up-specing’ their home when they’ve just made hundreds of thousands in the housing market rise.
We’ve just replaced a benchtop for one client who struck it lucky and bought her Hamilton home at a bargain. It was a beautiful 1990’s home with all the bells and whistles. “It’s just the benchtop I cannot stand’ she explained over the phone. “It would be silly for me to re-do the entire kitchen – it’s still in perfect condition but I know I won’t be able to live with this benchtop.”
Emily’s home was lovely. In door out door flow, an open plan, solid kitchen with cream doors… But I had to agree – the bench top had to go! It was that classic mottled green and grey Formica. Why that mouldy, bottle green colour was so popular in the 90’s, I will never know but one thing was true – a benchtop replacement was in order!
In this case I believe the Blanco Matrix tied in well with Emily’s cream cupboards and grey handles. It was a colour that took on its surrounds having a range of different tones in the quartz flecks. Emily’s benchtop was measured, quoted and accepted, all in a week.
It was only 3 weeks after that that Emily’s green kitchen benchtop was removed and replaced with an exact replica in stone.
“I can’t believe how easy it was. It looks like I have a brand new kitchen with no hassle and the difference it has made to my entire living area is unbelievable. I love my kitchen now, just love it!”.
I believe Emily’s benchtop replacement just put her home into the next value bracket and it’s easy to see why. Stone just gives a home that ‘wow’ factor, that beautiful accessory that no one can walk past without noticing.
