The most popular types of counter tops are: laminate, stone, and ceramic tiles. Laminate countertops are priced the lowest, and can come in a variety of colors and patterns.

Maintenance on laminate is relatively easy, however there are things owners should avoid. Avoid cutting directly on the countertop since the soft laminate could be easily cut, do not stand or sit on the countertop because weight could separate the piece from the wall, also be careful not to burn cigarette butts on the countertop as they are nearly impossible to erase, and be careful not to let water sit or stand for extended periods of time.
