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.
On the expensive side, granite kitchen countertops have become very popular. They add class and elegance to any kitchen, there is an endless colour variety available, to match whatever colour kitchen cabinets you have. They hold up to heat, and so long as they are properly installed, they can last a lifetime. Another similar option, which is not as well known, is 'Engineered Stone'. This is made of 93% quartz particles. It is heat resistant, stain resistant, and acid resistant, and does not scratch easily - all bonuses when it comes to kitchen countertops. In addition it is available in a wide variety of colours so you can always match, or complement your kitchen cabinets. If you are asking 'which type of countertop is right for you', provided the price is not out of your budget, granite or engineered stone will meet your every need.
These kinds of countertops are in demand because it can mimic the designs of marble, granite, wood or stone countertops. It is the best option to choose if you are on a strict budget budget. With laminate, you can have good quality countertops without having to sacrifice the look of your kitchen. It is also easier to maintain compared to other materials. Moreover, if you plan to remodel your kitchen in the future, you can change this one easily for a better and a more expensive material.
