There are many types of stone, and you can use any of them on your outdoor countertop, but should you? Porous stones like marble, limestone and bluestone may look great at first, but they stain easily, so you may be left with counters marred by grease or wine.

Concrete and wood offer simple, sustainable and naturally handsome alternatives, whether the kitchen counters are stained concrete or butcher-block top.
Stone, metal, wood, marble, concrete—which surface will best complement the style of your kitchen? Which surface will provide the best return on investment? Which is designed to last a lifetime?
