Solid Surface is a low-cost choice. If you’re on a tight budget, you can find Corian or LG Hi-Macs that still provides a beautiful finish to your counters. It stands up well to water and stains, but you cannot place hot items on it, and it does dent and wears out over time.
Tile counters are a unique and beautiful option. It gives you many design options because the tiles can be laid in artistic patterns for a one-of-a-kind look.
