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.

Granite is a popular choice for countertops at the moment, although it is one of the more expensive materials that you will find. However, despite the fact that it is more expensive, it is a lot easier to maintain, and it is a lot more durable than other materials, so it makes a good choice for those busier kitchens. Tiles are another popular choice for kitchen countertops, and they are easy to install, although there is one major disadvantage to tiled countertops, and that is that they are fragile and difficult to maintain and clean. This is due to the fact that mildew and mold can start to grow in between the tiles, and this needs to be cleaned using a special cleaning solution.
