Looking to update your kitchen countertops and wondering what affordable materials are currently available? Certainly, kitchen counters can be a huge expense – but they don’t have to be. And gone are the days when budget-friendly means low quality. Here are three countertop ideas that won’t break the bank.
- Laminate. Today’s laminate countertops have come a long way. No longer considered “cheap,” yet still budget-friendly, laminate counters come in a huge variety of finishes and patterns and are probably the easiest to install yourself.
- Ceramic Tile. Next to laminate, ceramic tile is the most affordable countertop option. And while the grout seams aren’t the best for quick cleanups, you can minimize the amount of seams by choosing larger pieces of tile.
- Solid Surface. Once considered a high-end countertop material, solid surface are now an affordable alternative to natural stone materials. Plus, they look like quartz or granite and are easy to clean and maintain.
