While stainless steel is a good and classic metal option, two other metals are seeing a surge in kitchen countertop popularity.
Given the numerous shapes, sizes and colors available, ceramic tile is probably the most versatile option (it’s also proven to be timeless). There’s plenty of room to play with patterns while still maintaining clean lines: stack tiles in columns, stagger them, or lay them at an angle. Most tile requires minimal maintenance, just be sure to seal the grout so it doesn’t get stained or absorb water.
However, the key to using tin successfully is moderation. Since the designs imprinted on the finish are often very detailed, too much of this material can feel overwhelming to the eye. For best results, treat tin like a focal point. Use it in places where you’ll want to draw extra attention — behind a high-end stove, or over a wide sink.
Copper creates a warm glow that softens the hard edges of a contemporary kitchen. If you’re using copper in a kitchen countertop and want to keep the sleek, polished look, select copper that has been sealed.
