Unique kitchen countertops can give your space a personal touch.

Make a statement in the kitchen with an unexpected kitchen countertop. Try using a unique design or unconventional materials.


Explore These Beautiful Kitchen Countertop Design Options for Ideas!

Materials like glass, stainless steel, copper, concrete with decorative aggregates, and reclaimed or salvaged wood are great ways to add an element of surprise—and loads of character—to the kitchen.

Indeed, unique kitchen countertops add a "wow" factor to your home, and just might help increase its value. Customization is also key to creating a countertop that's as unique as it is artistic. Design-savvy homeowners might want to add color to concrete counters, for instance, by adding a crushed blend of recycled glass or shell remnants to wet concrete.

Glass is another countertop surface that allows the opportunity to get creative, whether it's through LED illumination, or through a custom color palette (think the beach or Rothko).

Before selecting the kitchen countertop that's best for your space, consider the overall style of the kitchen. Kitchens with contemporary design elements, for instance, might be best served by employing a metal like stainless steel or copper, while traditional or farm-style kitchens could benefit from a reclaimed or salvaged wood material.
