Laminate countertops do have the expensive look without the drawbacks of natural countertops like marble or engineered stones. Laminate countertops meet customer requirements with a less painful installation and a great end product. Next up in budget terms is a wide range of natural wood countertops and not so natural imitation stone countertops. 'Silestone' is another best countertop idea. It is the color range from vermilion to 'day-glo' orange that makes this countertop well worth investigating. Silestone also has a very appealing warm leathery quality feel. Corian is a synthetic countertop surface that can be fitted like wood but has the hard quality of marble or quartz, another one the best kitchen countertop ideas.
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.
For instance you might pair one counter top material for the island countertop and pick another to pair with the cabinetry that runs along the walls. Or, you could use stainless steel adjoining the cooktop with a marble insert for a bake center and solid surface material around the perimeter. When looking at choices for your countertop material give some thought also to them as a matching or completely different backsplash.
