A relatively new option, recycled glass slab countertops are made from a blend of recycled glass melted down into slabs for use in countertops. These countertops come in a variety of styles, ranging from very unusual material in which bits of recognizable glass are evident, to those that look almost indistinguishable from engineered quartz or natural granite.
A chunky Caesarstone counter in Raw Concrete decks out this cool kitchen. They extended the slab up the wall to the window, making a mini shelf for soap or sponges. Add a rustic touch to your cook space with oak slab counters. It would look gorg in a farmhouse, Tuscan-style, or mountain-inspired kitchen.
A well-chosen countertop makes your kitchen more useful and easier to maintain, and it can also serve as an important design element of your kitchen. The range of materials that can be used for kitchen countertops is amazingly diverse, and some materials on the list may be surprising to you.
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.
Yet another way to make use of recycled glass is a countertop made from individual glass tiles applied over a cement-board core, much the same as ceramic tile. Although not uncommon, this is generally not a very functional countertop—glass tiles are better suited for backsplashes.
The final natural stone commonly found in countertops is slate, which is quarried straight from the earth, cut into slabs, and surface-grinded to a matte finish. It is a surprisingly good material for countertops, since it is relatively non-porous and resists stains well.
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.
