Kitchen counters not only have to be good-looking enough for us to want them in our kitchen, but they've also got to be durable. They have to be able to withstand cooking and cleaning, resist scratches, and even resist bacteria and germs. With all the options available today, it could be easy to get overwhelmed, especially if you are in the middle of building or renovating and the decision of what material to choose is looming. More after the jump...

Why not share what kind of countertops you have and whether you like them? What are the advantages to your material? The disadvantages? Did you choose this material yourself or did your apartment/home come with it? Can't stand to see another granite countertop? Feel the world should know about soapstone? If you could have a dream material what would it be? Share your kitchen countertop stories to help other readers!
