Kitchen Counter Tops

I appreciate natural materials for kitchen counter tops. In a former life I worked in the design center of a national builder and spent countless hours coordinating counter top samples with cabinet woods. One of my favorite granite choices was Black Galaxy. I love the depth of Black Galaxy granite with its cooper flecks sitting atop warm maple cabinets.  It's a  transitional look that works well in a traditional home.  But I always wanted to push fashion forward with other counter top materials.  Materials such as Carrera marble, stainless steel, butcher's  block and soap stone are timeless and create a worn patina when used in contemporary settings.

Black Galaxy, rightly named. Natural stones are amazingly beautiful.
