No island? No problem. Get creative like this kitchen, which topped architects' drafting tables with glass to serve as the kitchen island. Belgian bluestone countertops pair perfectly with the Carrara marble sink in this Savannah kitchen.
The material is held together with resins and shaped into slabs for use in countertops. The material can also be molded into one-piece units with sinks integrated into the countertop. Solid surface countertops are very versatile and give a reasonable and much more affordable alternative to granite and engineered quartz. They're not difficult to clean either.
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.
Although not as well known as granite or marble, soapstone has been used for countertops for many years. Another quarried stone, soapstone has a warm, milky appearance that allows it to complement other design features without overwhelming them.
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.
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.
