Generally speaking the roofline actually determines where the gutters are supposed to be. Whenever there is water flow coming off the home there should be gutters and it should be all around the home. So, unless your home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and it has the proper underground drainage built-in, you should contact your local gathering contractor.
For what you will spend in time and effort on this type of repair, I would suggest you look at granite as an option. Many local fabricators are offering specials on material that (depending on your sq. feet) could be very close to what you spend on recovering in formica.
We used a product called GianiGranite. It is a DIY paint process, but covers the formica perfectly. The reviews i read said that you may need to do an additional top coat (seal) every few years if your countertops get scratched, but we loved the transformation. So affordable and turned out great!
