The downside to wood countertops is that they need to be buffed and maintained with oil from time to time to give them that handsome sheen and to keep them from fading due to spills and exposure to extreme heat.
In addition to the cost of the materials, you need to consider the cost of installation of the material you choose for your kitchen countertops. Most countertop installations are best left to the experts, because they require special tools or knowledge for their proper installation. This is especially true for natural stone slab countertops and poured concrete countertops, because of the weight involved. For the do-it-yourselfer, tile countertops can be relatively easy to install, if you have a basic knowledge of tile installation.
One of the newest countertop materials to be introduced to the kitchen design market are the glass countertops. Thick, tempered glass is used for this purpose, and there are a lot of designs and textures to choose from. They are non-porous and are extremely easy to maintain. These are perfect for modern kitchens, and their textures are ideal for camouflaging small scratches and fingerprints.
