They serve as work surfaces to prepare dishes, places to set hot cookware from the stove or oven, and very often, in most modern kitchens, part of them is used for family meals, and snacks. Because kitchen countertops feature so strongly in a kitchen, they also add to the look of the kitchen as much as kitchen cabinets do. If you are planning a new kitchen, or just upgrading your current kitchen, have you given much thought to which type of countertop is best for you? There are so many options available, that it can be bewildering to choose the right one. Lets look at what is available.

You can create whatever combination you want for your countertops and kitchen. Natural materials, by their very nature, have a variety of patterns within the natural material. It is this randomness, which makes them so appealing to many consumers. Granites, particularly come in a wide variety of colors, grains, and patterns which can vary greatly, even in the same slab. While this randomness is appealing, it can offer a challenge to the installer to make large countertops appear seamless. One solution to this is using granite tiles to control or accent the randomness, depending on your preference.

If you are on a tight budget, and renovating your whole kitchen, you may want to choose to save on kitchen countertops for the moment, and rather spend more money on the parts of the kitchen that arent easily upgraded, like kitchen cabinets. Kitchen countertops are replaced relatively easily, so if you are look at which type of countertop is best for you, you can take your finances into account. For the budget conscious, you have the option of laminates and ceramic tile. Laminates are made of plastic-coated synthetics - they are easy to install and easy to clean, and they are very durable. There are a lot of colours and patterns available, and you can get a very good effect. The downside of laminates is that once they are scratched or chips, you cant really repair them - they have to be replaced. Another inexpensive option for kitchen countertops is ceramic tile - its also easy to install and keep clean, but you will have a slightly uneven surface, the tiles can crack, and the grout tends to stain.

Tile has been used for centuries and is popular choice in Europe and South American kitchen designs. If one tile is damaged it can be removed and replaced without having to replace the whole countertop. Natural materials come in tile form also, and are a great compromise in both style and price. Concrete countertops have been more popular recently, but are losing their appeal, because of higher upkeep involved and change of consumer taste. For the eco-conscious consumer, there are more choices of recycled materials being used in countertops. One popular choice is recycled colored glass bits set in a polyresin matrix producing an Art Deco look that is colorful, durable, and earth-friendly.
