If you’re itching for a kitchen counter update but feel like marble is your only option, we’re opening up a whole new world of countertop options that are a little off the beaten path.

Stainless steel
Industrial kitchens aren’t the only styles that can pull off a stainless steel countertop; just be sure to balance them with warm, cozy accents like wood tones, inviting wall colors and plenty of natural greenery.
