Ceramic tiles are a relatively easy-care, versatile, and aesthetic choice. The tiles themselves do not need to be sealed, but the grout lines do. So keep that in mind when planning the size and pattern of your tiles. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors and patterns for a truly unique kitchen countertop. Ceramic tile is a durable option that can mimic other materials as well.
Each piece of marble has a unique grain and gives any kitchen design a luxurious feel. If you don’t want to splash on a large amount of marble, you can incorporate it into a section as a baking surface or use it as an island countertop. It is heat resistant but can succumb to stains if not properly sealed.
Solid surface countertops are made from a mixture of acrylic and resin that are pressed into your desired shape. They are a hard-wearing and long-lasting surface that is easy to clean and maintain. This countertop style comes in a variety of colors and patterns and can be made to mimic other more expensive materials like granite, stone, or quartz.
Wood is always a great way to warm up a white kitchen, but it also goes wonderfully with other colors like blue. Hardwoods are the best choice for a durable wood countertop. Once sealed and cared for, they can last a long time, but be aware that wood is prone to stains, scratches and water damage.
