If you are considering more expensive options, wood or Butcher Block makes a very stylish kitchen countertop. It's easy to keep clean, and you can always freshen it up by sanding and resealing it. You could match the wood of your kitchen countertops to the wood in your kitchen cabinets. The downside to wood kitchen countertops is that they are easily damaged by water. Many people enjoy the 'industrial look', and if you are one of them, and asking which type of countertop is best for you, have you considered concrete? Concrete kitchen countertops are very different, but they are expensive, and if not properly done, they can crack. They are not for everyone, but you may be the unique individual who enjoys something unusual. If you like 'industrial', but aren't sold on concrete, stainless steel may be an option for you for kitchen countertops.
The variety of surface you choose will depend on just how your countertops are utilized. If you use your countertops for food preparation, then you want countertop surfaces that won't chip or pit easily and are scratch-and heat-resistant. (Of course, you will still want to use cutting boards and pot holders for hot dishes). If you plan for your countertops to retain your small appliances and/or cooking utensils holders, you can pick a different type of countertop surface. You will still need to keep in mind that some small appliances such as toasters, fat-reducing grills, and small microwave ovens designed to sit on countertops may still emit heat and may damage a surface that is not heat-resistant.
Modern homes tend to have a lighter look. oftentimes utilizing brighter colors as a base rather than a complimentary piece. Glass countertops tend to have brighter colors which are perfect for complimenting the modern kitchen. The colors will compliment white cabinets and walls very well. Not only will the colors and design go well together, but the beautiful shine of the glass make the kitchen one of the most admired rooms in the house. Granite in this case would make the kitchen conflictive and the beauty would be lost.
