With modern amenities and vintage touches, hassle-free zinc countertops are perfect in a casual kitchen. The pair of kitchen islands in this house are topped with Imperial Grey marble and edged in a band of riveted iron. It adds a masculine edge.
Many types of natural stone are popular choices for kitchen countertop, and of these, the most popular option is a countertop made from a solid slab of granite. Beginning life as a quarried slab of solid natural stone, granite countertops are fabricated to specification and installed by professional crews.
Although most people think of slate as a dark gray or black stone, there are types that have shades of green or pink within them. Unlike soapstone, slate has some subtle veining, though less dramatically than marble.
Caesarstone Calacatta Nuvo counters mimic the look of marble but are tough-wearing and low-maintenance. At a chunky 2½ inches thick, they hold their own with the size of this sleek black island. Caesarstone's honed Pebble surface does double duty as countertop and backsplash, creating a seamless quality and minimizing contrast in this modern kitchen.
Unless you live in a major metro area, it's difficult to find fabricators who will deal with glass counters. This is probably not a great choice unless you are determined to have unique countertops and can find an installer interested in working with them.
No matter how formal or relaxed you want to go, whether you want something practical and stain-resistant, or something so luxe it's outrageous, you'll find it on this list. And don't worry, there's marble inspo on here, too.
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.
