Marble is a beautiful material for a countertop. It is more expensive but gives a distinct look that can't be replicated by other materials.

A more affordable option is solid surfacing which is made of acrylic. This is a durable material designed to stand up to intense wear and tear. Solid surfacing is also resistant to heat and moisture.

A less conventional material for countertops is wood. Wood is available in many different price ranges that can fit any budget. You will get the most use out of a wood countertop if you reseal it every year or two.

A material that is good balance is granite. Granite is both durable and non-porous. The durability of this material means it is resistant to stains and mold which is important in any kitchen. Granite is also affordable and therefore a great option if you have a tight budget. Despite its affordability granite comes in many colors for any style of kitchen.
