Top 5 kitchen countertops design ideas for a small budget!

This post is provided by Glen Star.

One of the most exciting parts about designing your kitchen is when you get to your kitchen countertops. What will they be? Are you going to go for some quartz countertops? Or maybe you fancy the kind of style granite countertops bring into the room. Either way, it might just be too expensive for what you can afford, meaning that you have to sacrifice the beauty and efficiency of your countertops in favor of something cheaper, right? Wrong! You can in fact get amazing looking countertops that blend in with your kitchen design perfectly, even on a low budget. Here are some awesome alternatives for the most common countertop solutions.

Soapstone Sequoia Laminate

This is a great alternative for soapstone. It is very similar in appearance and while you will be able to tell the difference between this and the real deal, it will still look beautiful, which is in fact, the whole point. The best thing about it is that it comes much cheaper than soapstone slabs, so you will be able to save quite a bit of money without having to sacrifice your soapstone vision for the kitchen design.

Butcher Block Countertops

For those of you out there that have a soft spot for reclaimed wood countertops, know that there is a cheaper solution that might just do it for you. Consider using butcher block countertops. It is great because it requires a low level of maintenance and the warm surface will do a great job of filling the space left open by that reclaimed wood countertop you have always wanted.

Chrome Countertops

Have you ever considered using glass countertops? It is a really interesting idea, and chrome countertops can help you achieve a special look for your kitchen countertops. It’s a very elegant material as the glazed and tempered glass manages to use the light in the room to its advantage, creating a marvelous effect.

Granite Tile Countertops

That awesome granite countertop design is out of your price range, huh? Well, how about granite tiles? This is the cheaper alternative that allows you to sport the classic granite look for your countertops, for only a fraction of the price. The installation might seem a little more difficult, but in reality it should not take more than any other surface to install. Especially if you get an expert on the job, you should be looking at a really cool granite tile countertop in no time.

Paperstone Countertops

Paperstone is an interesting choice for a countertop, as it is made of recycled paper and resins. However, if you are dying for that lavastone look, this can get you pretty close to it without having to destroy your savings fund. Lavastone can be amazingly expensive, but this alternative might just be enough for what you want to accomplish with your kitchen design.
