If you're like millions of homeowners, you could be living with worn, decades-old laminate or retro-colored tile countertops. If you dream of replacing it with a higher-end stone, a handsome, warm wood or seamless solid surface, then read on.

Before you settle on a kitchen countertop replacement that's right for your particular space, it's important to consider the range of materials and cost of installation as well as the ease of maintenance and repairs for that particular surface.

Homeowners looking to increase the resale value of their home, for instance, may be interested in upgrading their counters with granite, marble or stone. Homeowners interested in achieving the look of stone when replacing kitchen countertops, but without the hefty price tag, have a variety of options from which to choose including solid surfaces like Corian, engineered quartz, and even updated versions of laminate.

Others may opt to replace kitchen countertops with handsome woods like butcher block, bamboo or reclaimed woods, while metals like stainless steel offer a nice counterpoint to both contemporary and traditional styles of kitchens.
