Glass, wood and ceramic tiles are a few other countertop styles that should be considered when choosing a surface that will work with your kitchen design. Be sure to keep in mind how you will be using the kitchen surface when choosing your countertop.
While granite remains one of the most popular kitchen countertop options in residential kitchens, it's not the only surface that's trending now. Stainless steel, a longtime staple of commercial kitchens thanks to its heat-resistant and hygienic properties, is a material that's recently gained in popularity. Another popular countertop material, butcher-block offers a striking but practical (and eco-friendly) addition to the kitchen.
Wood adds a warmth and beauty to kitchens that no other material can match. So it's no surprise that more and more homeowners are opting for wood countertops over hard, cold stone. Exotic woods like teak, tigerwood and Brazilian cherry are popular choices, as is arranging the wood in an eye-catching checkerboard pattern.
