Granite and Corian countertops are available in a wide range of colors and textures. Stainless steel is available in a number of finishes and textures, including a brushed finish or reverse hammered surface, which appears to be decorated with raised dots.

Tile offers the widest range of style options. You can go with an ornately patterned style, or a stone look, or just about anything in-between.
