Porcelain is a champion for its scratch and stain resistance. Porcelain is also impervious to water so you won’t have to worry about your countertop becoming due to cooking, cleaning, and/or doing other projects with water over time. Also, porcelain has so many color variations it’s hard to tell just how many options are available. The surface of porcelain can be imprinted upon so there is also room for your countertops to be finished to resemble other materials on this list such as marble or granite.


Quartz Countertops



Quartz is another material that’s wildly popular for large tile projects. Quartz countertops come in many shades that appeal to designers but white quartz countertops are by far our favorite color. Paired with white quartz backsplash, white shades like Calacatta quartz countertops create an unmatched monochrome aesthetic in Scandinavian designs. Black quartz countertops and gray quartz countertops fall on the opposite end of the spectrum but they are equally beautiful bringing a decadent touch to spaces. The colors of quartz countertops also have shades ranging from cream to beige, and sultry browns.

Butcher Block Countertops

If a rustic look is what you desire, then you should explore the various styles of butcher block countertops. Butcher block counters offer an alternative to the stones that many homeowners choose for the kitchen and bathrooms. Butcher block counters can seamlessly blend into most kitchens so you can go a different route. Well-maintained butcher block countertops can last an exceptionally long time.



The traditional look of butcher block is lighter shades, typically sourced from oak or maple. But you can add more depth and do it with a deeper shade like polished black walnut countertops. Richer shades of butcher block stay true to a rustic motif while adding a touch of warmth that looks good with dark-colored cabinetry. If you decide to go with wood counters make sure you treat them as traditional counters and refrain from using them as a cutting board which could compromise the surfacing over time.


Marble Countertops


Calacatta marble is only one of the stunning options for marble countertops. In addition to these lovely slabs Carrara marble, Statuario marble, Bianco, and Arabescato among others. Marble is considered the epitome of luxury when it comes to natural large-format marble tiles. Marble is a material with a reputation known worldwide for its stunning veining and unique appearance.
