35 Fresh And Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Countertop Ideas

By admin | Farmhouse Decor

The kitchen countertop is the perfect place to add the ultimate design touch to your kitchen. Regardless of which kitchen countertop ideas you’re attracted to, select materials that are durable and built to withstand the wear and tear associated with cooking and prep.

Engineering and technology have made a wide variety of design choices and finishes possible. While most of the following kitchen countertop ideas are durable, it’s a good idea to always work with cutting boards and silicone trivets for hot pots. Keep countertop surfaces clean with a non-abrasive, soft towel and follow manufacturer or installation guidelines on what products to use to clean and maintain the beauty of your countertops for years.

1. Colorful, Whimsical Kitchen Counter Tile

The tile on this kitchen counter comes from an artisan manufacturer, Nemo Tile, based in New York, NY. This is one of their more distinctive and color-rich tiles, Color Blox, which they describe as having colors such as “deep red and midnight blue” and including “proprietary cross-sheen finish that repels dirt and stains.” This is a wonderful tile that would fit just right in a Craftsman-style kitchen.

2. A Blue, French Look

A gorgeous glossy blue tile at six inches square for this rather shallow kitchen counter. From American Olean, this is Cache in Smoky Sky. But what really gives this counter its flair is the 3×7 inch Botanical Cap Accent trim.

It’s a showy tile for any kitchen emulating French or Italian styles.

You may want to avoid high-gloss finishes, as they easily scratch. American Olean recommends “double glazed like [our] Crystaltex or glazes fired at higher temperatures, such as glazes on vitreous and porcelain bodies.” 

3. White Shaker Kitchen Cabinets

White shaker is easily one of the most popular kitchen cabinet styles. It serves as a standard wood cabinet, while also accenting a pure white color to open up space and make a bold statement. Shaker cabinets are typically constructed of birchwood and feature a variety of different paneling options to add as much white as you’d like. 

4. Oak Kitchen Cabinets

A great way to accent your kitchen with some contemporary styles is to add white oak kitchen cabinets to your remodeling project. Whether you have a contrasting oak base with white accents or vice versa, this is a strong way to incorporate natural, earthy tones and materials. It’s innovative yet classic, making it just as timeless. 

Beautifully detailed.  Cabinets are rift sawn white oak & black walnut like this

5. White Kitchen Cabinets with Dark Countertops

Everybody loves yin and yang. Everybody loves the balance of light and darkness to create a contrasting and bold look. You can easily achieve this with classic white cabinets that feature a darkly-colored countertop on top. Whether your countertop is made of dark wood, granite, or quartz, you can appreciate the spectacle of nature’s vast color spectrum every time you walk into your kitchen.

Magnificent modern kitchen.  The beautiful wood under the island is walnut and per this builder is “book matched”– when it is peeled from the tree they label each piece to so the doors/wood grain look as if it were peeling off the tree.  The countertop is pure white quartz with a waterfall edge.
