Along with numerous choices of kitchen countertop mediums comes a wide range of looks, including innovative and artistic designs. While the classic look in a kitchen (Martha Stewart, we’re looking at you) will be beautiful for years and need little aesthetic renovation, these trendy looks are hot and new and give an unexpected wow-factor to your cooking space.

#1—Crystal Swirl

#2—Turquoise Ice

#3—Chef’s Ingenuity

Designer-couple Fitzhugh and Lyndsay decided that rather than purchase a regular countertop, they’d create spaces for fine knives in the long wooden table that flanks their narrow cooking area. The idea is to help create a border between kitchen and living room space in their open Brooklyn apartment. I love the look.

#4—Hue and Movement

#5—Quaint but Modern
