Well a very important question that requires a very responsible approach.
Today the furniture market offers more than 10 variants of materials for the table top. From cheap laminated chipboard to marble and granite. Let's take the most popular countertop materials and consider their pros and cons. So, we will compare chipboard, MDF, acrylic, marble and granite. The most important plus of the first two options - it is, of course, the price (MDF will cost twice as much as particleboard, but still very loyal). Another plus is the large choice of color palette and ease of installation. This is probably where all the pros end. The most basic disadvantages - these coatings can bloat, they are unstable to shocks, temperatures, acidic detergents and their service life is small. In addition, unlike non-toxic MDF, in the composition of particleboard enough harmful substances. The next type of countertop - acrylic. Pros - solid and without seams (even the sink can be made from the countertop itself, the bowl is melted in a single piece of acrylic). Service life of about 10 years. High temperature resistance. And looks, as they say in Odessa, "rich". Minuses - unrepairable, not cheap, the palette is limited. Well and the most kosher, of the countertops we consider - marble and granite. These are durable countertops that not only cost and look expensive, but and resistant to moisture, temperatures (marble is weaker than granite), and very easy to maintain. However, even such countertops have a number of their minuses. Well the very first is the biting cost. These materials are unstable to shocks, to caustic detergents and their palette is rather modest...
So, cheap or expensive - it is up to you to decide. There will be pros and cons of any material. The main thing is to approach this issue as carefully as possible. Weigh the arguments that are important to you. And we will always tell you where in Odessa more profitable to make a kitchen and help you decide on the configuration.
