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.
