Different types of materials are perfect for the different types of look you want to give your kitchen. Since the kitchen countertop is like the stage and the center of all the activities in the kitchen, you would want to invest an ample of time, energy and money on finding the best countertop that would match the theme you would like for your kitchen.
Professional kitchens tend to opt for stainless steel countertops as these are hard wearing and easy to maintain, however, they are even more expensive than granite, and they are not exactly aesthetically pleasing, so they are unlikely to enhance the homely feel to your kitchen. For something a bit more unusual and contemporary, glass countertops is one option you may want to consider. You may think that glass is an unusual choice of material for a kitchen countertop and you would be right, however, thick, tempered glass is ideal as a countertop in a modern 21st century kitchen. The most cost effective countertop material is laminate. This is a wooden countertop that is covered in a thin layer of laminate material. Although, these are the cheaper option, and therefore most suited to those people that have to stick to a tight budget, they are not as durable as the other materials listed above.
Countertop Materials. Countertops that are covered in Formica are the most common as well as being the cheapest, however, they are likely to wear out quite quickly, and Formica covered countertops can be easily damaged. Placing a hot pan straight from the oven on to a Formica covered countertop can cause the material to bubble and crack, and this is damage will not be easy to repair, and could result in the replacement of that entire section. If you have the finances, a countertop that is made from a much more durable material is much more conducive to cooking and preparing food. Materials that can be used for kitchen countertops include marble and granite, as not only do they look good, but they are also very durable and hard wearing.
