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.
Crafted from walnut, imbuia and anigre, this kitchen's nearly 11-foot-long island was inspired by English antiques. Surprisingly, though, it's totally durable. The wood is sealed with an acrylic finish, so it resists spills, scratches, stains, and heat.
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.
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.
While modular granite does offer DIYers an opportunity to install granite countertops, they are somewhat inferior in look and performance to solid slabs. Further, DIY installation is harder than it first appears.
Concrete countertops are an unusual countertop choice, but one that gives a home a one-of-a-kind look. They are usually fabricated and poured on-site by a specialist crew who creates forms to match the space. The concrete can be colored and textured, if you wish, or the concrete can be highly polished to a shiny gleam.
Solid surface is a manmade material originally created as an alternative to stone, designed to resemble granite and other natural stone. It is made mostly of blends of synthetic acrylic and polyester materials, sometimes with a small amount of natural stone dust blended in.
