- For the lowest budget types of all, focus on laminate countertops. Today’s laminate can actually mimic the looks of the more expensive natural stone & marble options.
- If you’re not a fan of the laminate look, no matter how “natural” it looks, consider the tile countertop option. You can choose either ceramic or porcelain tiles, or you can customize it to your particular taste and needs.
- For those who have a few more coins in their budget, consider the engineered stone option. Engineered stone, such as quartz and soapstone, has the proper looks without the expense…not to mention the fact that it’s eco-friendly!
- Solid-surface countertops are another option for those with a few more coins in their budget than usual. A word of warning: solid-surface countertops aren’t scratch and/or heat-resistant. However, it is very easy to get rid of the damage caused to said countertops when they happen.
- For those who have larger budgets, of course granite is the most popular option for kitchens. It’s elegant, durable, and – believe it or not – not as expensive as some other options!
- Of course, the most expensive option of all is marble. While it’s durable and elegant, and the ultimate in luxury, it is not without its flaws. If you don’t properly seal marble, it is very easy to scratch and damage. And unlike solid-surface countertops, marble damage is not easy to get rid of.
