But a high price tag isn't necessarily a foregone conclusion. As you're considering kitchen remodeling ideas, options and solutions, keep in mind that when it comes to cutting cash corners in kitchen design, it is important to consider all of your choices, including kitchen countertops.

Inexpensive kitchen countertops come in a range of options, including tiled surfaces and laminate. These cheap countertops are relatively durable and can easily be installed without professional help.

Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, tile countertops are a versatile, budget-friendly surface option. Tile countertops are easy to maintain and clean. The surface is heat- and stain-resistant, and available in a number of colors, materials, sizes and patterns.

Laminate countertops are made from layers of plastic that are bonded to particleboard or kraft paper to create a solid countertop surface. These countertops are available in a wide variety of colors, textures and patterns, ranging from options that look like marble to ones that mimic the appearance of stainless steel.

Of course, if you have a creative side, then you may want to consider a recycled glass countertop. For this countertop, you will apply the same concept that is used to make mosaics. By using colored glass and tile adhesive, you can create a wide range of designs and patterns.
