Although once considered the black sheep of the countertop industry, laminates are now available in such diversity that they are making a big comeback. Don't overlook laminates until you see what is available.
A less expensive option for homeowners who want granite, or those you want the cost savings of installing granite themselves, is modular granite. Modular granite occupies a niche halfway between solid slabs and granite tiles. Modular granite can be described as large tiles pieced together to form a countertop. Although still weighty, modular pieces are lighter than slabs, making them a decent option for DIYers.
If timeless is your jam, go with classic mahogany. It looks good with most colors, but we're obsessed with this blue pairing. Because this apartmennt's kitchen has a bold backsplash, the countertops are subtle. Simple slabs of the same marble cover the countertops and island.
No island? No problem. Get creative like this kitchen, which topped architects' drafting tables with glass to serve as the kitchen island. Belgian bluestone countertops pair perfectly with the Carrara marble sink in this Savannah kitchen.
The material is held together with resins and shaped into slabs for use in countertops. The material can also be molded into one-piece units with sinks integrated into the countertop. Solid surface countertops are very versatile and give a reasonable and much more affordable alternative to granite and engineered quartz. They're not difficult to clean either.
Another natural stone option that is in high demand for countertops is marble, although it has limitations that should be recognized in kitchen applications. Marble's unique appearance and veined patterns make it one of the most attractive of all natural stones.
Concrete countertops are an unusual countertop choice, but one that gives a home a one-of-a-kind look. They are usually fabricated and poured on-site by a specialist crew who creates forms to match the space. The concrete can be colored and textured, if you wish, or the concrete can be highly polished to a shiny gleam.
