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.
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.
Granite tile countertops are generally less admired than solid granite or even modular granite countertops, but they are an option for homeowners seeking to save money by installing the countertop themselves. The many grout seams make upkeep and maintenance difficult.
If you love copper but worry about it patinating, try it in an outdoor kitchen or bar. This party hub won't lose its sheen anytime soon though, thanks to a protective layer of lacquer.
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.
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.
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.
