36 Unconventional Kitchen Countertop Ideas to Give a New Dimension to Your Kitchen

The countertop plays a vital role in the designing of a kitchen. It is a place where all the key functions are carried out. Keeping in mind the significance of the kitchen countertop, you should choose the finish, material, and design carefully. In the modern era, homeowners have a sea of options to select from in terms of size, material, shade, finishes and much more for their home decor. The in-vogue trend is countertops with earthy tones, delicate slabs, and integrated sleek sinks. Here are some innovative kitchen countertop ideas for giving your kitchen a brand new look.

The Choice of Material-Engineered Stone

You can have your kitchen countertop crafted from an array of materials, such as stainless steel, slate, zinc, aluminum, recycled glass or quartz. Among all these materials engineered stone or quartz is the best bet for its durability, aesthetic appeal and is nonporous and thereby making it resistant to the staining with liquids.

Granite is a good choice for the kitchen countertop material but it is porous allowing various kinds of liquid to stain it. Granite even encourages bacterial breeding and thereby makes it quite undesirable to be used in kitchens. Solid surface is cheaper than quartz or granite but is prone to scratching and scorching. Laminate countertops are even inexpensive but chips off scorch and peel up easily. The rest of the materials are way too expensive. Thus, the best material proves to be quartz.

Earthy Tones Become Popular Than the Cheery Shades

Interior designers claim that the modern trend is neutral soft tones rather than the vibrant shades. Some of the reputed interior designers in Ahmedabad mention the rising popularity of the shades such as beige, white and soft gray for the kitchen décor in the modern age.  More emphasis is given on highlighting individual elements against a neutral background.
