Countertop Ideas for Kitchens
Choose a suitable material
You can choose from many different materials. Granite, tile, and wood are a few of the options suitable for varying uses and types of kitchen.
Combine the countertop and walls
Consider the rest of your kitchen décor when choosing a countertop. The best color is one that works well with the cabinets and walls.
Take the grout color into account
You might be surprised at the difference that the grout color makes. Do you want it to stand out or to blend in perfectly with the tiles?
Pick a color that you love
Choose from a huge variety of colors for countertops. There is no need to stick to plain colors, as patterned or veined models look fantastic.
Think about mixing materials
You don’t need to use only one material or color. Try a contrasting look in different parts of the room if it is a big kitchen.

Copper Countertops Under 20$ What????

A little about me: I am a DIYer who goes out of my way to use items I already have when I make projects over. For instance, this project cost ME about $16 total to do. However to buy all of the products for this (listed below) it might cost between 50-60$. (Still a bargain) Three of the 4 squares in this picture are real copper countertops, gorgeous, shiny, and expensive. However one of these squares is MY copper countertop. Which is also gorgeous, shiny, but cost less than $20 and as it turns out, is made of concrete.
