It's a huge decision, choosing a material for your kitchen countertop. Huge both in terms of cost and in their impact on the aesthetics and practical function of your kitchen. Top-end, premium kitchen countertop materials are a significant part of a kitchen remodeling budget.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Granite tile countertops are generally less admired than solid granite or even modular granite countertops, but they are an option for homeowners seeking to save money by installing the countertop themselves. The many grout seams make upkeep and maintenance difficult.
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.
