What looks for all the world like a marble counter is actually a laminate from Formica. Laminates have come a very long way. If you're in the market for new counters, the new laminates are definitely worth a look.
A perfectly smooth counter material is less important in a bath than it is in a kitchen so why not use tile?
The glass tile used on this counter and backsplash adds an interesting texture that wouldn't be possible with any other material.
Even though this is a granite countertop, it's not the granite you think you know. This is Absolute Black granite that's been given a flamed finish. Specialty finishes like flamed, brushed, leathered and honed are giving even the most common granites a new life.
There hasn't been anything really new in counters in longer than I can remember, but what's shown here is definitely new. So new it's not available in North America yet but it will be here this year.
This is a 1-centimenter deep porcelain material that's already popular in Europe. It's scratch-proof, stain-proof and kid proof. I've always said that there's no such thing as a perfect counter material, but porcelain is as close to perfect as it gets.
