What Houzz contributors are saying:

Look for a surface designed for baking. Traditionally, marble has been the baker's choice. The hard surface is easy to clean and stays cool, a plus when working with pastry doughs.

baking station should be a little lower than your standard countertop, which makes it easier to roll out dough or knead bread.
