The variety of surface you choose will depend on just how your countertops are utilized. If you use your countertops for food preparation, then you want countertop surfaces that won't chip or pit easily and are scratch-and heat-resistant. (Of course, you will still want to use cutting boards and pot holders for hot dishes). If you plan for your countertops to retain your small appliances and/or cooking utensils holders, you can pick a different type of countertop surface. You will still need to keep in mind that some small appliances such as toasters, fat-reducing grills, and small microwave ovens designed to sit on countertops may still emit heat and may damage a surface that is not heat-resistant.
The first question you should ask yourself is what is the most important aspect of your new countertop? For some people, beauty is viewed as being most important while durability is to others. Both are preferred by many, but each option will come with its own set of pros and cons. Some countertop surfaces such as granite are very hard and durable. Incidentally, granite was previous revered by the wealthy as the countertop of choice because of its durablility and beauty, but has since founds its way into the hearts and homes of citizens everywhere, thus making it an affordable option to many and well worth its cost. Durability and beauty are important to many people who are now choosing it over other less expensive options such as laminates.
Another question to ask yourself is how much do I have to spend? This may be tied directly into the first question concerning the most important aspect if you are following a strict budget. If you don't have a lot to spend, budget is everything and may very well dictate your choice. The good news is there are many affordable options, some of which may not have been previously. They have become so common now, in fact that they are a little easier to come by. If you are on a strict budget, sit down and figure out how able you will be to deviate from that. Be sure to actor in installation costs.
