    First... figure out your budget.... THEN figure out what kind of look you want... or or may be able to help you there.... Once you have made a choice as to materials... get shopping around..
    Next.... use graph paper and draw out the area and sizes of the cabinets in your kitchen... be as accurate as possible...
    Then...if Quartz, granite, etc... is in your budget take a tour of the stone yards in your area, that specialize in counter tops, pick out the materials and slabs that you like.... and get estimates (and small samples) of the ones you like....

    if you have laminate on your counter top, you can purchase a new laminate sheet...the last time i did it, it used rubber cement to adhere to the old. you can get matching end piecing for the sides.

    Hi Cheri, a couple of companies offer resurfacing kits for diy-ers. One is called Rustoleum Transformations and the other is by Giani. If you google those words, you'll find a wealth of information about the products with the process of how to accomplish it. Probably youtube videos as well of actual people doing this. My friend did the Rustoleum kit and was very happy with hers which looked like dark granite when finished.
