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.
When properly sanded and sealed, granite countertops can last a lifetime. In addition, they are treasured by homeowners because each granite block is an artwork in itself. Unlike engineered stone countertops which are man-made and therefore have pre-set patterns, granite is natural stone and thus have patterns, textures and colors unique to them.
A great many choices are available for the eager homeowner. Everything is a nice shot, but it also pays to have a durable, beautiful and elegant countertop. Several kitchen countertop ideas are available, so it is up to you to choose what the best among them is. Everyone has unique taste and style, so you just have to choose what material makes you feel good about and what you think is best suited for your lifestyle.
