Factors Affecting Your Kitchen Countertops Prices
When replacing kitchen countertops there are two factors that contribute to your total cost—material and installation.
You as the consumer have far more control over the material you select than the cost of installation, so this page will focus on material costs.
Since materials are priced by square footage, the first thing to consider is the size and shape of your planned replacement counter.
Once you know how much material you’ll need, start to explore different material options and compare them to your budget.
Materials You Select Impact Kitchen Countertops Costs Differently
Different materials can dramatically affect your kitchen countertops price.
Typically, your most inexpensive option will be a laminate surface, which ranges from $5-$20 per square foot depending on the options and features you select. While this surface can be prone to scorching and scratches from sharp knives, it is also easily and inexpensively replaceable.
Granite is usually one of the most expensive materials. Granite kitchen countertops cost between $30-$200 per square foot, again depending on selected options. However, this high price comes with benefits—granite counters can last a lifetime if properly maintained.
Higher prices don’t always mean more durability though. Soapstone counters can cost as much as $200 per square foot, but can also crack, chip, or darken in color overtime.
If you’re on a budget its important to draw a distinction between luxurious and functional materials.
Consider what benefits you want from your countertop and how long you want it to last. Then begin to factor in the kitchen countertops prices to fit your budget.
