5 Kitchen Countertops that Won’t Break the Bank

Kitchen renos can cost an arm and a leg if you aren’t careful. When it comes to breaking budgets, nothing tips the scale like redoing your kitchen. This is easy to avoid if you prepare yourself from the beginning.

Careful research and partnering with the right pros will lead to a cost-friendly new kitchen in no time. Take a look at the First Coast Supply team’s favorite affordable countertop options for 2019 renovations.

Concrete

What a fun way to add an industrial, contemporary look to kitchens of every design scheme. We love concrete for its low-cost price tag, but its functionality is what really has us raving. Choose from dozens of finish options — we’re partial to black and natural stone.

PROS: doesn’t scratch, impervious to heat, can be embedded with different accents, easy to clean

Butcher Block

Wood and butcher block counters are the perfect touch of warmth that all-white kitchens crave. Popular materials include bamboo and maple, but your choices are endless. The only significant maintenance you need to keep in mind is that wood needs a deep oil every two-to-three years.

PROS: lasts for decades, easy to clean, can be sourced locally, easy to repair and refinish

Tile

All of the perks of stone without the price tag. Choose any color, size or shape tile you want for a creative approach to high-quality countertops. You receive the same durability of stone without having to pay for one large slab.

PROS: variety, easy to replace individual damaged tiles, durable

Engineered Quartz

This is a perfect durable option for families with kiddos. It’s cheaper than the real deal and looks great in any kitchen. First Coast Supply carries five different manufactured quartz brands to fit any homeowner’s style.

PROS: low maintenance, durable, customizable

Stainless Steel

Want the look of a professional kitchen without the commitment of outfitting it? Start with stainless steel counters. It’s a beautiful way to branch outside of the norm while remaining high end and functional.

PROS: resilient to nearly everything, elegant, functional
