Countertop: Budget

Budget-friendly laminate. Wilsonart's simulated marble has a nice neutral look. Plastic laminate wears for years—just don't cut into it. Independent tests actually found that it resists stains and heat damage better than other synthetics. Be sure to hire a good installer to minimize seams. About $20 to $25 per square foot, installed; Wilsonart International
