Cheap Kitchen Countertops
Upgrading your kitchen, but on a tight budget? Cost-conscious consumers don't have to sacrifice style when they shop smart and search for attractive but durable alternatives.
While laminate surfaces, hailed for their seamless, uniform look, are considered one of the cheapest countertops available, it's also possible to employ stone in your project, but in smaller quantities—think granite or marble tiles in lieu of slabs (though ceramic and porcelain tiles also do the trick for a fraction of the price).
Don't fall into the trap of thinking that expensive countertops make a kitchen look more interesting. There are plenty of other cheap kitchen countertop options.
Consider solid surfaces like Corian, engineered stone surfaces like quartz, natural materials like butcher block, or wood grain counters. These materials can cleverly add character and interest to the kitchen without breaking the bank.
Eco-friendly materials, like bamboo, glass and concrete, have also increased in popularity as countertop options in recent years thanks to a low price tag (especially in comparison to stone slabs) and a one-of-a-kind feel.
