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.
Natural materials, by their very nature, have a variety of patterns within the natural material. It is this randomness, which makes them so appealing to many consumers. Granites, particularly come in a wide variety of colors, grains, and patterns which can vary greatly, even in the same slab. While this randomness is appealing, it can offer a challenge to the installer to make large countertops appear seamless. One solution to this is using granite tiles to control or accent the randomness, depending on your preference.
For the homeowner who is after of the elegance and timeless beauty a countertop must bring, the glass, ceramic tiles, stainless steel and granite are among the top choices. Each possesses distinctive qualities.
