The built-in kitchen countertop is largely a 20th-century phenomenon. Wood, marble, and the occasional metal counters usually appeared only in the pantry, even in the most stylish 19th-century homes. When it was present, the worktop was usually a dry sink or a wood table, both of which endure as inspiration for the vintage-look counters we prefer today.
Know that every material here will require some shopping around, but keep this in mind: More than 15 architects and designers responded to our query, and the most popular budget recommendations were wood, engineered quartz, and stainless steel. As for the downright cheapest option? Good old laminate.
Having just aced our first pass at laying tile, we wanted to move onto the backsplash but needed a new countertop in place first. We spent roughly around $2,000 on new counters. I needed a material that didn’t require much, if any, maintenance and in a color that lightened the room.
