Kitchen Countertop Prices
Replacing a kitchen countertop means two things: (1) You're about to add a fresh, new surface to your area, and (2) it's time to spend some money.
But the good news is that there are also a number of color, texture and material options available when choosing a new countertop, making it possible for even the most budget-conscious homeowner to obtain a new surface for his or her kitchen.
Laminate countertops are one of the most cost efficient countertop options. 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 look of stainless steel. The average laminate countertop will cost you $20 to $60 per square foot.
On the other end of the price spectrum are stone countertops, including granite and marble. The cost of a these countertop will, of course, depend on the size of the surface area. However, the average natural stone countertop will cost approximately $50 to $100 per square foot. In addition, the cost will depend not just on surface area, but also on how thick you want the slab to be.
Less costly options include ceramic tiles and recycled glass. Both materials are applied with a tile adhesive, but can be arranged in a mosaic design or other creative pattern.
