There is a tile keyword on the photo and you can just make out the edges of the tiles in the photo, but I am not certain of the brand. Good luck in your search!

What material is used for the counters?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
I think I had these counter tops- honed granite. Very difficult to keep clean and very dark.

I wished I didn't get talked out of white marble. Even with wine stains, I think it looks great.

It is honed granite. We didn't find any issues with keeping it clean. It was actually very easy. Though, they are very dark so if a speck of dust will bother you, they aren't for you. Thanks.

I'm looking at my fan deck and it sure could be that color. Keeping in mind that yellows often look brighter on the wall, you could also look at Mellow Yellow/2020-50 for a slightly more subdued option. The yellow, black and white in this kitchen are FAB!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Go Bold with Black and Yellow
The bold color combination takes on a traditional tone in softer butter yellow with checkered floors.
Classic black and white linoleum is my personal fave, especially when done on the diagonal.
Kelly Porter added this to How to Pick the Right Yellow
Lemon. When it comes to the heart of the home, yellow isn't just for a classic country-style kitchen. Cheery lemon-yellow makes any kitchen more inviting. Combining yellow, black and white is an exciting, stylish color scheme that always works ... and I'm totally loving the checkerboard flooring in this space. Paint pick: Yellow Highlighter 2021-40 by Benjamin Moore
Ceramic TileThe quintessential kitchen flooring surface, ceramic tile is a fail-safe bet for just about any style and budget. Your options for color, size, shape and pattern are virtually limitless, so you can create the look that suits you best, whether that's sleek and contemporary or lavish Old World.Pros: Ceramic tile stands up to wear and tear, from muddy footprints to spills and splashes, like a champ and is supereasy to clean. The huge variety of low-priced options makes it one of the most affordable flooring choices. And thanks to tile's modular, DIY-friendly nature, you can easily come up with a custom pattern even on a tight budget.Cons: Tile can crack as floors settle, and a dish or glass dropped on it is virtually guaranteed to shatter. It also can be cold and hard underfoot, so use a rug or a cushioned mat to offset the discomfort. Moisture makes tile slippery; a honed or textured surface can provide slightly more traction. Grout needs periodic sealing and special cleaning to keep stains at bay.Cost: About $3 to $8 per square foot, uninstalled. How to Shop for Ceramic Tile
Julia Pockett added this to Tricky Yellow — Friend or Foe?
While old wives' tales claim that babies cry more in a yellow room and partners will argue more in a yellow kitchen, but these have yet to be scientifically proven. I say if you like it, go with it — but perhaps exercise caution and steer clear of those vivid lemon yellows.

Absolute perfection! This kitchen evokes a casually elegant lifestyle that speaks more to good food and great company than a byproduct of a designer "don't touch that!" feel. (Politically correct comment-there is nothing wrong with nterior designers taste of any kind! I would just leave the drool on the floor as opposed to burning up the phone lines squealing "I want that!!!")
