If you’ve been on the hunt for countertops for a while, then you know that they have the ability to change the entire look and functionality of your kitchen. But while this can be exciting, it can also be intimidating to make such a big purchase.
Making sure that you have the right material for your budget and lifestyle is crucial to making a smart purchase, as countertop materials can quickly use a large chunk of your remodeling budget.
But there’s no reason to fear. At WS Granite Tops, we have an array of affordable countertops available that we’d love to show you.
Before you jump in headfirst and make a commitment to any one material, it’s important to do your research and consider your lifestyle. If you have a busy family and a hectic kitchen, you might not want to invest in a countertop material that sustains damage easily. And if you’re really looking to pinch pennies, you might want to lean toward something that can be installed in a DIY project, like ceramic tile.
Our Affordable Choices
Here are our most affordable countertops at WS Granite Tops:
Did you know that you can choose to create tile countertops out of almost any material? It’s cost-effective, and porcelain is our most popular (and most affordable) option. Porcelain tiles come in all sorts of designs, colorations, and patterns, and you can even find tiles that mimic the look of natural stone.
It’s also possible to get genuine natural stone tiles. While they are pricier than porcelain tiles, you can install them yourself in a DIY project and that will save you on professional installation costs.
Tile counters are easy to clean, heat resistant, stain resistant, and durable. If they get chipped or cracked, they are easily replaceable, so it’s always smart to have a few extra tiles on hand!
Granite is an extremely popular choice when it comes to countertop materials. Much like a few other options in this list, you may not think that it is a very affordable option, but you’d be wrong.
With the right planning and research, it’s possible to find granite slabs that fit within your budget. Even though the cost of this stone can climb high, there are always options on the affordable end to be considered.
Granite is known for its durability, unique patterns, and staying power. It’s a low-maintenance natural stone that lasts for generations.
Quartz is one of the trendiest countertops on the market. It is made with a base of natural quartz combined with polymers and resins that seal its pores and create a nonporous surface that never needs to be sealed.
The patterns of quartz slabs are known for their consistency and uniformity. They do not have the natural uniqueness of natural stones, but to some that’s an added plus.
Much like granite, quartz slabs can be expensive—but it’s possible to find options that fit within your price range, as long as you don’t mind looking a bit harder.
Many people associate marble with class and luxury, automatically ruling it out if they are following a strict budget. But because of its increased accessibility, marble is more affordable than ever—much to the glee of our customers and those all over the nation.
Marble is available in all sorts of veining patterns and colorations. Much like granite, it needs to be sealed and resealed periodically, but it is very heat resistant and durable.
Not to be confused with engineered quartz, quartzite is an affordable natural stone countertop whose looks can be compared to marble. But the great thing about quartzite is that it involves much less maintenance than marble countertops do. It’s easy to care for and often used in place of marble, and if you search, you will find slabs that fit within your budget.
