Granite remains the No. 1 choice for kitchen remodels, but the standard cost of granite runs from $50 to $110 a square foot (including installation). While there's nothing functionally wrong with laminate, Corian and Formica, they're not always what homeowners are looking for. So if your countertops need an uplift without a hefty price tag attached, try granite paint. Giani Granite Paint kits allow you to give outdated countertops a granite look for $69.95 per kitchen.
