Corian countertops are extremely durable, more costly, and are an attempt to mimic a natural stone look for a more affordable price. Tile has been used for centuries and is popular choice in Europe and South American kitchen designs. If one tile is damaged it can be removed and replaced without having to replace the whole countertop. Natural materials come in tile form also, and are a great compromise in both style and price. Concrete countertops have been more popular recently, but are losing their appeal, because of higher upkeep involved and change of consumer taste. For the eco-conscious consumer, there are more choices of recycled materials being used in countertops. One popular choice is recycled colored glass bits set in a polyresin matrix producing an Art Deco look that is colorful, durable, and earth-friendly.
