Granite, for instance, has reigned supreme in the kitchen-design world for years. For many, though, the price tag is a budget-buster, despite the claim that it adds to the resale value of your home.

Fortunately, the look of granite (or stones like marble) is possible to achieve for less—whether through intricate textured laminate patterns; engineered stone surfaces like quartz; or solid surfaces that can be molded to your specifications to include features like an integrated sink or backsplash.

For a more unique look and feel, other types of kitchen countertops worth looking into are stainless steel for added commercial appeal, woods like butcher block and bamboo to add warmth, or glass (or recycled glass) countertops for a statement-making addition to the kitchen.
