Glazed, tempered glass countertops can offer an almost ethereal, light impression in a kitchen in which the countertop is usually a solid mass. As a fashion, they’ve become more popular recently, but as beautiful as these glistening glass-tops are, they come with a hefty price tag: some can go as large as $300 a square foot.

Tile countertops

May be cost-effective, based on the material you choose. Ceramic and porcelain tile are among the most affordable options and come in a wide range of colors and designs, such as designs which mimic granite and other stone. Natural stone tiles tend to be pricier than ceramic but are a lot less expensive than slab granite or marble. In addition to a lower upfront cost, tiles are a DIY-friendly product which may save on specialist installation expenses. Cracked or chipped tiles are fairly easy to replace (always purchase an extra tile to have available in the event of repairs). But tile is not without potential problems. The grout may stain if not frequently sealed and wide grout lines can be a collection point for grime. Also, tile can be very heavy and it’s important to consult a professional installer if you are unsure if your cabinets require reinforcement.

Butcher block

Butcher block – Includes a traditional appeal that complements a conventional kitchen or can add unexpected contrast into your contemporary area. Maple countertops can be less than half the cost of rock tile, but higher-quality butcher block can be as costly as slab granite. Spills should be cleaned immediately to prevent stains. Wood counters are not heat resistant and intense dryness can cause cracking, therefore it is important to use pads or trivets with hot pans. Butcher block tends to show nicks and scratches for a shopworn appearance, but if you don’t enjoy the tear and wear you can lightly sand out flaws and re-oil the outside to revive it.

Formica Striato Solid Surface Countertop

Marble countertops would be the epitome of this lavish kitchen perfect, which luxury comes with a price tag which will probably be more than $100 a square foot. If you adore the look of marble but don’t care for the cost of Carrara, consider the good surface alternative Striato from Formica. It includes all the advantages of solid surface countertops (durability, lower price) and comes with a clearly marble-like look.

Granite Tiles

Granite Tiles

Granite slabs are the gold standard in stone countertops, but those slabs don’t come cheap, and the installation of the slabs isn’t going to be any easier to stomach, either. If you really want the look and feel of granite, though, you can still get it at a fraction of the cost with granite tiles. You don’t even have to source the material yourself: You can order kits online from Lazy Granite, and if you are disinclined to DIY, hire a tile installer to finish the job. You will still come out far ahead financially than you would have if you’d laid out the money for those granite slabs!


Giani Stone Paint for Countertops

Alright, so this is not a replacement, per se. But Giani rock paint is a sealant that also completely and totally overhauls the look of any counter. It may be used on anything from laminate to butchers block to primed and painted wood, also since it’s a end itself, it must simply have to be redone when the surface is ever chipped or damaged.

Paperstone Cabernet Countertops

There is no getting around it: Lava stone is stunning. It’s amazing, with its amazing color, its luster and its own you-can’t-quite-put-your-finger-on-it magnificence. It’s also literally among the most expensive options on the planet for countertops, occasionally ending up about $300 a square foot. The fact is, nothing will seem like lava stone. It feels like a solid-surface material but is eco-friendly in almost every way you can imagine, and if you drink from its warm Cabernet color, you might just wonder why you ever considered a different crazy-expensive option.
