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.
Another good option for your kitchen would be a marble countertop. Obviously, a marble kitchen countertop will stand out beautifully in your kitchen. There is no doubt that marble counter kitchentops truly represent elegance. If you want to go all out and buy a natural marble countertop, make sure you and your family are extremely careful around it. Natural marble, as beautiful and high quality as it is, can become stained from certain substances.
Some of the more expensive types of kitchen countertops such as those made from marble or granite are valued for their looks, smooth feel, and lasting qualities. For this, it is usually recommended that you stick with a granite or marble countertop if your budget permits. If you are on a tighter budget, then there are also some great alternatives to a marble and granite kitchen countertop. That can mimic the appearances of a true marble countertop quite nicely. These are known as cultured marble countertops, but they tend to have a shorter life span then real marble and can scratch more easily. Price wise, the cultured marble countertops are by far the best bang for your bucks.
