We are newlyweds and recently closed on our first starter home in California. We don't have much cash to remodel our kitchen, which needs it desperately. We would love to invest in a granite countertop, but unfortunately, it's not in the budget right now. Instead, we would like to have a "granite look-alike" but want to stay away from laminate or anything cheap looking. Are there inexpensive alternatives to granite that hold up as well, and look like granite? For example, are there any concrete products that are made to look like granite countertops?
