1 in 4 Homeowners Combine Kitchen Countertop Materials

According to Houzz, 1 in 4 homeowners combine two or more kitchen countertop materials when renovating their kitchens. Custom wood countertops are often paired with marble, engineered quartz, quartzite, granite and metal countertops. A popular design choice is to include a wood countertop in a food preparation area while using a metal or stone countertop for perimeter countertops. Another design used often is to select a stone, like marble or quartz, for the kitchen island countertop and select a wood countertop for the seating area.

Design Inspiration for Mixing Kitchen Countertop Materials

Taking ques from some of the best designers in the industry, here is some design inspiration for mixing kitchen countertop materials.

Combining Zinc and White Oak Wood Kitchen Countertop Materials

For this traditional chef kitchen with two kitchen islands, Venegas and Company, Boston chose a Zinc countertop for the seating area as well as a White Oak wood countertop for the food preparation work space. Photography by Michael J Lee.

Combining Persa Avorio Leathered Granite and Wenge Wood Kitchen Countertop Materials

Persa Avorio Leathered Granite countertops were chosen for the perimeter countertops and kitchen island. Designer Kate Connolly of Homestead Kitchens then selected a Wenge butcher block for the kitchen island end. The butcher block creates a perfect food preparation work space and adds a layer of texture to the kitchen.

Combining Polished Marble and Zebrawood Kitchen Countertop Materials

A kitchen designed by Karen Kassen, CMKBD, ASID, of Kitchens Unlimited features a Zebrawood Pastore™ Waterfall Countertop. Polished Marble countertops flank the perimeter of the kitchen.

Combining Quartzite Tempesta and Reclaimed Chestnut Wood Kitchen Countertop Materials

Alicia Saso, AKBD, of Drury Design Kitchen & Bath Studio chose a Reclaimed Chestnut counter for a raised kitchen bar top. In addition, Quartzite Tempesta was selected for the kitchen island and perimeter countertops.

Custom Wood Countertops designed for Laundry Rooms

Custom Wood Countertops designed for Laundry Rooms for extra counter space
Custom Wood Countertops designed for Laundry Rooms

Custom wood countertops are designed for use in many rooms throughout the home, including laundry rooms. They can be designed for the wash station area or for extra counter space. Wood countertops provide a naturally warm surface for folding and switching the wash. Some designers choose to combine an integrated mudroom and laundry room. For integrated spaces like that, a wood bench seat is often crafted for a warm place to sit.

Collaborative Interiors designed this Seattle, Washington laundry room to include an African Mahogany wood countertop above the washer and dryer. Also designed was an African Mahogany bench seat for the built in cabinetry on the parallel wall. The warm, red tones of the wood compliment the cabinetry in the wash station area, as well as the wood ceiling beam.

Standing out against the white wall of paneling and cabinetry, the counter makes for the perfect area to fold and stack clothing. It also provides extra counter space for laundry related items to be in reach.

Powder Room Vanity Countertops

During the 18th Century, a powder room referred to a tiny room where people went to have their wigs re-powdered. Powder rooms were still used through the Victorian period as well, but the definition of powder room changed to mean a general bathroom. Women would discretely excuse themselves from company by going to “powder their noses” in the powder room. Though the uses for a powder room have changed over time, the exclusive privacy they provide has remained the same.

Powder rooms in today’s homes offer a myriad of design possibilities. Unlike historical powder rooms, they can include design elements of furniture such as decorative vanities. Vanities offer storage space for towels and other toiletries. However, they can also serve as a design statement.

Powder Room Vanity Countertops | Design Ideas

Powder Room Vanity Countertops can be designed to stand out or to bring balance to the space.

Stained Cherry Powder Room Vanity Countertop

In the Asian-inspired powder room pictured above, the stained cherry wood countertop does both. Teakwood Builders designed the vanity to balance with the dark wall trim, although a custom edge profile on the countertop makes the vanity stand out.

Sapele Mahogany Powder Room Vanity Countertop

Vawn Greany and Trisha Gaffney of Collaborative Interiors designed Sapele Mahogany wood countertop to serve as the vanity for a vessel sink. The simple color palette mixed with the rich colors of the wood create a statement.

Powder Room Vanity Countertops | Design by Echelon Custom Homes
American Beech Powder Room Vanity Countertop

Each component of this powder room only reaches its full potential when combined with all the components as a whole. The lovely wallpaper has flecks of colors that pick up the balance of design elements and the bright red vanity base adds a vibrant pop of color. The American Beech wood vanity top is accented with the bright and neutral tones of the wall paper.

Other Items, Comments or Advice: This kitchen was a complete gut renovation. The previous kitchen did not complement the modern architecture of the house, and the new design brings in elements of architectural details consistent with the home. The Grothouse bar top was intended to be a focal point, while not feeling like a “heavy bar”. You can see through to the lower level granite countertop, which compliments the various levels within the house to give a sense of openness.
