Countertop Ideas for Your Kitchen Design

Ready for something new and different? These countertops are sure to reveal your personal style in a way nothing out of a showroom ever could.

  • Embedded countertops. Countertops can be created with small treasures embedded inside. Perhaps pieces of the wine bottle you shared on your first date, your bottle cap collection, or a few photographs that have sentimental value can be embedded into a clear or pale-colored countertop for visual effects and great memories.
  • Custom finishes. Certain stains, paints, and hand-drawn finishes can be quite attractive for your kitchen countertop design. Embossed or hammered finishes are popular for stainless steel and copper.
  • Edging treatments. The edge of your countertop actually gets quite a bit of visual attention. Scalloped designs, waves, and different edging than what the rest of your kitchen countertops have can make a bold statement.
  • Odd shapes. Who says the countertop has to be rectangular or square? Those that arch outward are also intriguing, as are circular countertops on kitchen islands.
  • Lights within. Want to really surprise your friends? Countertops with lights just under the surface can make both prep work and entertaining much easier. Rope lights on the backsplash can provide a pleasant glow or a burst of pizazz, depending upon the colors you choose.

The kitchen is often the gathering place of the family, so make it count with a unique countertop that reflects the style of those who live there.
