Granite, Corian, concrete and stainless steel are all top choices for a kitchen that will see a lot of traffic and food preparation. All of these surfaces are durable and made from materials that are resistant to scratches and most staining. Granite and Corian countertops are available in a wide range of colors and textures. 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.

If you are simply seeking a luxurious countertop, then you may want to consider a marble surface. Marble comes in a variety of beautiful textures and colors, including beige, creamy white, black and slate gray. Consider using a gray-toned marble countertop in a kitchen with white cabinets and a white subway-tile backsplash for a seamless finish. While marble countertops are prone to chipping, they have proven especially beneficial to bakers who prefer a cold surface for rolling out bread and cookie dough.

Glass, wood and ceramic tiles are a few other countertop styles that should be considered when choosing a surface that will work with your kitchen design. Be sure to keep in mind how you will be using the kitchen surface when choosing your countertop.
