Countertops are becoming increasingly more important in today’s kitchens and with a multitude of styles and colors it is becoming more difficult to find your home’s perfect match. Whether you are looking for a sleek, clean look or something with a little more texture, your countertops can set the tone for the rest of the kitchen. Natural stone such as granite, marble, soapstone and slate still reign supreme in most kitchens. They tend to be more durable and resistant to scratches, not to mention their beauty can help enhance the aesthetic of the kitchen.
Some kitchens will mix different surface areas. The countertops are natural stone and the island might be a butcher block. Whichever type of material you decide to use make sure you do your research to determine which will work best in your kitchen.
