We have modern day go-tos. The textures, finishes, and furnishings that are perfectly on trend, and perfectly delightful. Marble is one of those essentials, and while we love entering a kitchen decked out with marble countertops (and brass fixtures to complement them!) other surfaces deserve the spotlight, too.
Not to mention, there are tons of other (potentially less costly) options that can still make a grand statement in your kitchen renovation
. After all, this room is the heart of your home, so you’ll want to treat every aspect accordingly. Check out a few dozen of our favorite non-marble options for a creative take on your countertops.
