Don't be afraid to mix materials. This Chicago kitchen contasts the Absolute Black granite with a leathered finish of pale wood on the island. Gray cabinets are topped with a Silestone counter in subtly-veined Pulsar.
Although a uniquely beautiful choice, marble is a relatively soft and porous stone that has drawbacks when used in kitchens. A better choice might be granite, an engineered stone, or solid-surface material that resembles 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.
Thus, "quartz" countertops are not solid slabs of quartz mineral but instead are an engineered stone product. Many quartz counters have antibacterial agents added. Quartz is rapidly overcoming solid-surface material as a convincing alternative to natural stone for countertops.
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.
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.
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.
