If you’ve been following us lately you’ve seen concrete and wood countertop ideas, but what if you’re looking for something a little more unusual? Here we’ve rounded up some fresh and unique ideas to decorate your kitchen with an eye-catching finish. To talk about materials that are suitable for kitchens and yet original, I would choose marble, stone, corian and maybe wood, since natural wood textures look very beautiful. You can also make a cool countertop yourself, e.g. BB a penny countertop with glue. Check out more great ideas below and let us know which one you like the most.
A wood countertop is a cool idea for any kitchen – it adds texture, warmth and a bold touch. It can be a butcher block countertop, a chevron clad countertop, a wood tile countertop, a live edge wood countertop, and it suits a rustic, modern, modern, minimalist or just about any other kitchen. Choose the stain according to the look you want – a contrasting one or a matching one. Remember that a wood countertop is not a very durable thing. You must therefore seal them properly to ensure a longer lifespan.
A stone slab is a very durable idea, it lasts a long time and you can also highlight it with indoor lights. The stone can be different, it’s entirely up to you and the textures and colors too. Most flagstones look so catchy on their own that you don’t need a special design for your countertop. You just have to decide whether your kitchen will look contrasting or matching and whether you will use the same countertop for the kitchen island or choose a different one.
Terrazzo is a very trendy and bold material for backsplashes, countertops, floors and even walls. There are countless colors and patterns to choose from. All you have to do is take a look and choose – whether it’s a contrasting look with bold terrazzo or a matching look with neutral terrazzo. Since terrazzo is patterned, it is better to apply it to both the countertops and backsplash to make them a whole and avoid a match, which can be very difficult.
Other countertops that you can opt for can be made of glass, mosaic tile, metal, epoxy and many other materials – it all depends on the look of your kitchen and the effect you want to add. Metal backsplashes stand out on this list because they are very durable and not hackneyed – you won’t see them in many homes. Check out the ideas we’ve collected for you and get inspired!
