Looking for a kitchen renovation on a budget? If you’re in search of a cost-effective kitchen upgrade in the Denver Metro area, you’re going to have to choose a budget-friendly countertop material. Your counter doesn’t just make or break the finished look of your kitchen, but it also determines whether you’ll have the money to include all the changes you want. If you want to allocate some money toward new cabinetry and appliances, you’ll want to consider these alternatives to granite countertops. 

Affordable Countertops for Your New Kitchen

Laminate can be made to look like granite.


Laminate countertops are made of various layers of bonded plastic, kraft paper, and particleboard. They can be made in a variety of patterns, colors, and textures. Thanks to today’s advanced manufacturing techniques, laminate countertops have never looked better. People often can’t tell them apart from the materials they are mimicking. You can get laminate to look like stone or even wood.


For a more industrial look, there’s concrete. Much like stone countertops, concrete gives users a solid, natural look and feel, but without costing an arm and a leg. Though there aren’t too many color options, you can go with off-white, pale grey, or a beautiful stained finish to match the color scheme of your kitchen. 


Doing a kitchen renovation on a dime? Tile countertops are popular among those who need a countertop replacement on a microbudget. Tile is durable and water-resistant, and you can have it installed in various patterns and colors.


These countertops provide tons of warmth and are great for farm style or rustic-contemporary homes. Bamboo is a popular choice, but maple and oak are also commonly used. Just remember to oil your countertop every so often!
