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.
If you are considering more expensive options, wood or Butcher Block makes a very stylish kitchen countertop. It's easy to keep clean, and you can always freshen it up by sanding and resealing it. You could match the wood of your kitchen countertops to the wood in your kitchen cabinets. The downside to wood kitchen countertops is that they are easily damaged by water. Many people enjoy the 'industrial look', and if you are one of them, and asking which type of countertop is best for you, have you considered concrete? Concrete kitchen countertops are very different, but they are expensive, and if not properly done, they can crack. They are not for everyone, but you may be the unique individual who enjoys something unusual. If you like 'industrial', but aren't sold on concrete, stainless steel may be an option for you for kitchen countertops.
Although it is smart to zone in on the eye appeal and overall looks of a countertop, it is also important to make sure that you can pay for it. If you are reworking your whole kitchen, it might be a good move to make a list of materials that you will need or want, in addition to a budget. If you mistakenly throw away too much money on kitchen countertop materials, you may find it tough to afford to remodel the rest of your kitchen.
