The luxurious look of marble clashes with the feel of an industrial kitchen, so homeowners tend to gravitate toward the durability and sleekness of granite. The natural stone industry sees trends come and go, but the overall universal nature of granite makes it work with nearly every design trend. Countertop fabricators should stock their slab yards with a wide selection of many granite stone colors to best serve each design trend.
The worktop may also include a large built-in hardwood chopping board, with a pull-out waste-disposal drawer beneath into which to scoop vegetable peelings, and perhaps a slab of cool, smooth marble as well, traditionally the best surface for rolling pastry. Otherwise a freestanding central work station with all-round access may include both cooking rings and a sink for washing fruit and vegetables. The height of all these worktops needs to be carefully calculated because at the wrong height they will make preparing and cooking food unnecessarily tiring.
