Stainless steel coordinates with any color and is one of the easiest countertop materials to clean — just wipe it with a cloth and mild soap. The most appealing characteristic of this material is its ability to prevent bacteria buildup, making it the most hygienic countertop available.
Idea Two: Glass Countertops
Aside from its sleek, clean appearance, glass modern kitchen countertops have many benefits. Glass can be cut into any shape and texture and can be stained in any color. Even though it’s a pricier option, it’s becoming increasingly more popular because of its modern look. It’s easy to keep clean and its non-porous surface makes it stain-resistant and one of the most hygienic countertop materials available. To make it more durable, choose glass that’s at least 1 inch thick and tempered.

Idea Three: Concrete Countertops
This thick concrete countertop is the focal point in this modern kitchen designed by Rebekah Zaveloff. Concrete countertops are highly customizable — you can choose any stain color and texture. Concrete mixes well with many different materials, such as glass, tile and marble to create a one-of-a-kind look. Aside from its eye-pleasing appearance, it is energy efficient — when the temperature in your home rises, concrete captures the heat and releases it when the temperature cools down.
Idea Four: Travertine Countertops
This travertine countertop lends a classic Old World look to this neutral-colored kitchen designed by Lisa Stanley. If you don’t fill and seal its pitted surface, it can trap food and bacteria and absorb liquids, which make it more high maintenance than other surfaces. Despite its high maintenance, this material is one of the most aesthetically pleasing choices and brings a warm, inviting feel to any kitchen design style.
Idea Five: Recycled Countertops
Recycled countertops, made to last a long time, come in a variety of recycled materials, including concrete, glass, paper, composite and recycled plastic. Designer Lori Dennis carried the recycled countertop material through to the backsplash for a continuous look. To complete the eco-friendly kitchen, she chose bamboo cabinets and flooring.
