Countertop Materials: Home and project owners have an abundance of kitchen countertop materials to choose from in two essential categories: Natural and engineered surfaces.
1.Natural countertops include granite, marble, limestone, travertine, slate, wood, soapstone, onyx, and any other sufficiently hard material found "as is" in nature and cut into slabs or tiles.
2.Engineered surfaces include any countertop that is heavily processed or "man made" from raw materials. These include engineered quartz (which is ground-up quartz mixed with resin), plastic laminate (like Formica), solid surface acrylic (like Corian), ceramic tile, stainless steel, copper, glass, concrete, terrazzo, and even recycled paper.
Inside some of these categories are thousands of sub-choices that can boggle the mind. However, in considering of health problems, choosing natural stone is our better choice to make.
If the plethora of kitchen countertop options is overwhelming to you, stop right here. While it's interesting to know what is available, the majority of my clients chose to stick with tried and true granite countertops, which are available in hundreds of colors.( If you're curious about exotic options, we honor your exploring spirit and are happy to provide some inspiration.

|Kitchen countertops are one way to be adventurous without committing the entire kitchen to only one material. For example, some people choose to put a different granite color on the island in order to set it off visually from the rest of the kitchen, while others may want a kitchen desk with a carbonized bamboo countertop. Talented cooks may wish to cordon off a section of their countertop with a block of marble for rolling dough and a butcher block countertop for chopping food.||
|Keep in mind that some alternative surfaces are less durable than granite countertops and may show wear rather quickly. Caring for your counters will be a consideration, so as will food safety and stain resistance.||Aobo Stone Granite Countertops 2|
