The kitchen countertop is the perfect place to add the ultimate design touch to your kitchen. Regardless of which kitchen countertop ideas you’re attracted to select materials that are durable and built to withstand the wear and tear associated with cooking and prep.
The latest trend in contemporary kitchens is the thick slab countertop effect. While most countertops are normally 2” thick choosing a 3 – 5” thick countertop creates an anchored stately look. Remember to adjust cabinet heights accordingly to make up for the height increase from the thicker countertops.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous however which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
