Manmade materials include laminates, Corian, tile, and concrete. Laminates are inexpensive and durable, though they can be scratched or burnt relatively easily. Corian countertops are extremely durable, more costly, and are an attempt to mimic a natural stone look for a more affordable price. Tile has been used for centuries and is popular choice in Europe and South American kitchen designs. If one tile is damaged it can be removed and replaced without having to replace the whole countertop.
Wood is a good material for adding warmth to a kitchen. It comes in different colors and patterns and is versatile enough to match a modern kitchen or a country-themed one. A few examples of hardwood used for kitchen countertops are oak, walnut, cherry, teak, mahogany, pecan, hard maple, and many others.
Natural materials come in tile form also, and are a great compromise in both style and price. Concrete countertops have been more popular recently, but are losing their appeal, because of higher upkeep involved and change of consumer taste.
