Soapstone Kitchen Counters. Often used in laboratories for its resistance to stains, chemicals and bacteria, soapstone is a durable and natural choice for a kitchen. At $80 to $100 per square foot installed, it might be on the more expensive side, but it can be a lifetime investment.
Displayed collections. As long as there’s a place for everything and everything is in its place, there’s no reason not to keep your favorite items on full display. Pot racks, plate racks, a few open shelves and a glass‐front cabinet let these homeowners enjoy their copper cookware, silver and china from the kitchen table, which takes up most of the room in this charming kitchen.
Believe it or not, there can be such a thing as too much counterspace. When it happens it's most often seen in the L‐shaped kitchen layout. In this kitchen, hutch‐style cabinets on the countertop solve this problem, add to the aesthetic, and create additional storage. This solution also cuts down on the clutter that can appear when there's too much counterspace outside of the main work triangle.
