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. It's frequently affordable, and it's the easiest do-it-yourself surfacing material of the bunch. But if you live in a cold climate, the freeze-thaw cycle puts the grout and tiles at great risk of cracking.
Glass is another countertop surface that allows the opportunity to get creative, whether it's through LED illumination, or through a custom color palette (think the beach or Rothko).
Concrete, quartz, wood and tile are also some of the best kitchen countertops available at home and kitchen improvement stores. Ask if samples are available to purchase or borrow, and hold them next to your cabinetry to see if they will work in your kitchen space.
