Hidden Potential When Gayle Christopher bought her Leeds, Alabama, home, she had a sneaking suspicion that there was a stunning space lurking somewhere within her homely kitchen. Flooring Worth Overlooking Figuring out how to release the kitchen’s hidden beauty was another story. “The space was trapped in the ’70s with fake butcher-block plastic, dark wood, and years of accumulated schmutz,” says Gayle. A Fresh New Face With a little imagination and a lot of elbow grease, Gayle turned her dreary 1970s kitchen into a bright, inviting space. From painting the cabinetry to installing floors and fixtures, she handled every bit of the labor herself. Black and White Design Recycled-paper countertops and a simple tile backsplash anchor the classic palette, and are among the many green materials Gayle selected for the kitchen. Open Range A new range and hood replaced the tired model that was in place when Gayle bought her home. The white and black appliance works in harmony with the surrounding color palette. Frugal Framing Gayle crafted cabinet doorframes out of ordinary garden stakes from a home-improvement center, a solution right in line with her tight budget. Open Shelving Gayle left the doors off the uppermost kitchen cabinets, which helps to expand the space visually and gives her a spot to display dishware and cookbooks. Inviting Accents Gayle chose cup-style cabinet pulls to lend a hint of vintage appeal. A Bright Breakfast Nook Gayle and her dog Cooper relax in the breakfast area, which got a facelift along with the kitchen. She replaced the eroded flooring and added white paint to brighten up the space. Simple honeycomb-style blinds allow ample sunlight to filter in.

Indeed, unique kitchen countertops add a “wow” factor to your home, and just might help increase its value. Customization is also key to creating a countertop that’s as unique as it is artistic. Design-savvy homeowners might want to add color to concrete counters, for instance, by adding a crushed blend of recycled glass or shell remnants to wet concrete.

LiondragoncustomI think the seventh kitchen is fit for me very much,love them,Marina KlimaSimply mind blowing, all the designs showcased are must have; obviously you can’t have all of them at once but they all are worth applying to your kitchen, amazing stuff.Bardon SmithI wanna a marble for sure…and yes my taste keeps changing but this is a good thing. Marble is timeless and you cannot go wrong using itKristen DockeryMy husband and I have been interested in getting new counter tops for a while now. The ones that we have now are a really bright, I don’t even know what material. I think that it would increase the value of our home by a lot and make our home look so much better. I think that we are leaning towards granite most. I can’t wait to get them replaced and get this taken care of. Do you have any tips on replacing counter tops yourself?Alexis WebberI truly love the butcher block or reclaimed wood countertops. It does require more care, but luckily we don’t have kids, so it should be easy. I absolutely love the rustic feel that wooden features give a home. We’re planning on putting in a red accent brick panel behind the stoves as a splashback, so I think the two textures will really compliment each other.Paul LangleyThese are some really amazing countertop material ideas! I really like this current design trend of the counter turning 90 degrees downward and running straight down to the floor, it looks great, and very modern. I also really like those slate and poured concrete ideas, those are so cool! Thanks so much for sharing!

Glass countertops are extremely durable and heat-resistant (although they can chip, and will definitely show more smudges). According to HGTV, they cost about the same as granite. They also come in really beautiful colors, as this kitchen from Elle Maison proves.
