There are a wide variety of options available when it comes to choosing your new kitchen countertop, including laminate, tiles, stainless steel and granite surfaces. It is important to consider your budget, time available and how you will be using your kitchen countertop. For example, if your budget is limited and you are seeking a DIY project, then you might want to install a laminate or tiled kitchen countertop. On the other hand, granite, stainless steel and marble countertops can all be installed with professional help ranging from minimal involvement to full installation.

If you have an especially artistic side, then you may want to consider installing a mosaic or recycled glass countertop. These countertops can be installed with tile adhesive, a flat-end trowel, and broken pieces of glass and tile. Use your imagination to create designs and patterns that suit your kitchen design and color scheme.

New countertops can be installed by measuring the surface area and creating a template made from poster board that has been cut and taped together. Use the template for do-it-yourself installations or to take to a professional who will cut and install countertops for you.
