Traditionally, Formica or laminate countertops were your only choice for countertop material. Today you have many more choices for countertop material, both natural and manmade. Natural materials, such as granite, quartz, and hardwoods are very popular, and add a touch of elegance to your kitchen.
When it comes to picking a new countertops for your kitchen, there are a number of important factors that need to be taken into consideration. One of the most important things to remember is the cabinets in your kitchen. Countertops are almost always placed on top of kitchen cabinets or cupboards. If you are looking to remodel your cabinets as well, it may be a good move to pick out all of your supplies and materials at once same time. This will help to make sure that your new kitchen countertop not only looks great, but that it also goes well with the kitchen cabinets that you will have put in.
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.
