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.
