Whether updating a kitchen's dated tiles or replacing its Nerf countertops with something sturdier, Builtmore is the one-stop shop where you can find all the materials you'll need. Builtmore's online virtual kitchen lets kitchen remodelers test out color combinations between the backsplash, counter, cabinet, and floor—resulting in far fewer accidental deaths than the store's kitchen holodeck. From there, browse more than 90 colors of granite countertop cut with eight different edges and polished to a mirror-like sheen ($45 per square foot and up), then pick out a sink or floor tile ($1.25 per square foot and up) to match. Builtmore's eponymous line of cabinets comes in five different colors and gives you plenty of apartment units to rent out to pet tarantulas, as do custom Wellborn cabinets, which were featured in HGTV's 2011 Dream Home. Installation fees vary by project; call ahead for a quote.
