Granite comes in many different colors and patterns due to the way it’s formed (cooling and solidifying of molten materials). Whether you’re looking for a subtle complement to your kitchen or a standout slab with unique mineral inclusions, there is an almost limitless selection to choose from and no two granite countertops are the same.
Stainless steel is available in a number of finishes and textures, including a brushed finish or reverse hammered surface, which appears to be decorated with raised dots. On the other hand, concrete allows for the incorporation of various colors, textures and even patterned imprints, like floral designs. Concrete countertops can also be embedded with stones, seashells and other items that interest you.
Manufactured under names like Corian, Wilsonart, Staron, Swanstone and Formica, solid-surface countertops are tough, hard-working surfaces. They're available in dozens of colors and patterns that mimic the look of stone. Solid-surface countertops also eliminate much of the hassle of upkeep. They're easy to repair, resist stains and scratches, and require little to no maintenance.
