A giant kitchen needs an island that can compete with its size. A Caesarstone countertop in Blizzard tops this 14-foot-long station, anchoring the floor plan. Anything smaller would be swallowed up by the vastness.
Of the natural stone options, granite slabs are the most popular, and for good reason. Solid granite slabs make very heavy and durable countertops and improve home values. Slabs are a better choice than the other granite options—modular granite and granite tile.
We know all about your marble kitchen countertop dreams. They were once ours too, but hear us out: There are so many gorgeous options to choose from — zinc, concrete, and even raw wood — that by the time you get done with this story, you may be rethinking your ultimate #KitchenGoals.
Marble is a relatively soft and porous stone that MUST be carefully and repeatedly sealed if used for kitchen countertops. Like granite, marble is available in three forms—solid slabs, modular marble, and marble tiles. As with granite, solid slabs are the best choice for countertops.
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.
Touches of brass accent a New Jersey kitchen. The Silestone countertops in Lagoon have the look of marble but are stain-resistant. In this beach house kitchen, the gray veining in the quartzite on the island complements the color of the Caesarstone countertops.
Although not as well known as granite or marble, soapstone has been used for countertops for many years. Another quarried stone, soapstone has a warm, milky appearance that allows it to complement other design features without overwhelming them.
