Linoleum is inexpensive, and it looks that way, too. The countertop material can stain and chip relatively easily and ages any kitchen significantly. Rather than shelling out money to get a classier marble or granite material, try revamping the counters yourself with concrete.

Strip the counters down and then slather wet concrete evenly over the top. Once it’s dry, sand the concrete so that it’s smooth and apply a satin finish to give it a polished look.
