Simple Shaker-style kitchen cabinets in a creamy color are set off by dark counters made of Vermont soapstone, a living material that will age and stain over the years. This Marmara marble was vein-cut to show off the striations that look like stripes. It feels more modern than the usual Carrara, but it's also classic.
A less expensive option for homeowners who want granite, or those you want the cost savings of installing granite themselves, is modular granite. Modular granite occupies a niche halfway between solid slabs and granite tiles. Modular granite can be described as large tiles pieced together to form a countertop. Although still weighty, modular pieces are lighter than slabs, making them a decent option for DIYers.
Ceramic tile countertops are made from individual clay-based tiles adhered over a cement-board core using thin-set mortar adhesives. For kitchen countertops, grout seams make tile a less-than-ideal countertop material, but newer ceramic and porcelain tiles are available in large sizes that can help minimize the number of seams and make for easier upkeep.
