This type of professional can improve this chaotic space and help turn it back into its intended purpose, a bedroom. If you need to remake one of the rooms in your home, consider hiring a remodeling contractor to complete the work for you.

Unique Kitchen Countertop Ideas For You To Try

Joel Nguyen

Remodeling your kitchen means you will have dozens of choices to make, right down to your floors and your kitchen countertops. There are so many of the typical options you may just get bored of looking at them. If you really want countertops with interesting twists, try one of the ideas below.

Glass 

Yes, glass countertops are a thing. There are a few ways to do them too.

  • The first is to go all glass, which allows you to see down inside your lower cabinets, a handy thing if you cannot remember where you put your ceramic fry pan or the waffle iron.
  • The second is to model the glass countertops after window panes with square wooden or rectangular frames to hold the glass in place. You can still see inside the cupboards below, but the wood provides added support.
  • The third option is to frost or etch the glass, which gives them a stunning decorative effect.

Finally, you should know that choosing glass countertops allows you to place all kinds of hot pans on the glass knowing that the pans will not burn or stain the glass.

Tile/Mosaic

Large tiles can be used to create slab forms, which are then used as countertops. Really large tiles, such as the kind used for floors in schools, may also be used. It just depends on what kind of look you want to create. Smaller tiles work too, especially when you use really small tiles to create mosaics in the countertops. If you want the entire countertop surface area in your kitchen to be one giant flowing mosaic, be sure to hire a mosaic artist either as the fabricator of your countertops or as a consultant if you want to do the countertops yourself. 

Concrete Embedded with Objects

Concrete embedded with different kinds of objects is another way to redo your countertops. Concrete embedded with dozens of tiny seashells is a very popular countertop for bathrooms, but you could use this example/product in your kitchen as well. Any item that would produce a little texture or color without making the countertops unusable is acceptable. Your remodeling contractor can even help you create these slab counters with embedded items by showing you how to mix, pour and form the concrete, as well as when to insert the various objects you want to include inside the slabs. Really, you just want the items to "peek" from the slab, so be very careful about the items you select.
