Inexpensive Ideas for New Countertops

Selecting and purchasing brand-new kitchen counters is a big decision, especially if you have a small budget.  If you really want brand-new counters, but are worried about the cost, a great idea is to consider different materials  that look good, but don’t come with a high price. For an economical kitchen countertop alternative, you can install ceramic floor tiles instead of a whole stone slab. Tiles can be found in many shades and styles and come at a fraction of the cost of one large piece. If you want stone, you can use granite remnants to get the look, but at a lower price.  Also remember that you will probably get a better price for your countertop and installation cost from a local company versus a large, national chain.
