Re: Galley counter top material

I'm surprised no one has mentioned ceramic tiles yet. I installed mine(2" X 2" tiles) over plastic laminate about 15 years ago and they are still in great shape. They add little discernable weight, resilliant, whatever color you want and attractive. If your laminate is in sound condition, sand with 36 grit paper, use a good waterproof adhesive mastic and epoxy grout and you'll be loving life!
My grout joints have yet to crack or discolor due to it being epoxy grout.
