Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, all of which need to be weighed when choosing. The more esoteric materials, such as bamboo, zinc, and stainless steel. may prove to be too expensive and hard to maintain for most people. For most homeowners, the more practical options will include materials such as slab granite, engineered stone (quartz), solid surface material, as well as traditional laminates and ceramic tile.
The final natural stone commonly found in countertops is slate, which is quarried straight from the earth, cut into slabs, and surface-grinded to a matte finish. It is a surprisingly good material for countertops, since it is relatively non-porous and resists stains well.
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.
