An island can look like a monolithic block unless you do something to make it interesting. This chunk of elm anchors the seating area, keeping the live edge so it doesn't feel too perfect. A bit of leftover wood was turned into six drawer-fronts, flanking the range.
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.
This tiny kitchen was inspired by the outdoors. Along with sky-blue cabinets and cloud-white walls, there's also a Silestone counter in a deep forest green. It acts like a neutral, so it can go with almost anything. Marble and casual don't exactly go together, so if you're looking to keep things low-key, opt for butcher block. Paired with pale oak floors and plank cabinetry, the room's filled with warmth and informality.
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.
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.
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.
Quartz countertops are one of the latest and greatest manmade countertop materials, made popular by brands such as Dupont Zodiaq and Cambria. This material is composed of pulverized waste rock plus resins for hardness and binding.
