This YouTube video by How to Home goes through the process of choosing the best affordable countertops for your home.
Why do you need new countertops?
There are several reasons why you need new countertops. For instance, your existing ones might be showing their age.
They no longer withstand the pressures of everyday use. So, they become more chipped and scratched.
On the other hand, you may need a change. Even if you’re not performing a complete renovation new countertops change the look of a bathroom or kitchen.
What types of countertops?
The countertop type depends on where it’s going. For a kitchen, you need sturdy material that stands up to heat and stains. In the bathroom, consider countertops that are resilient to moisture and humidity.
In the past, there weren’t many styles of affordable countertops to choose from. Those that were less expensive ended up being somewhat plain. Fortunately, today’s affordable countertops come in a variety of materials and styles. In fact, some styles of standard Formica look and feel like granite or marble.
