Cabinets and countertops still need to be functional and not just aesthetic, so be aware of each material’s characteristics so it meets your needs. For example, if you have kids and make many peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and sweet drinks, you’ll want a material that's both durable and stain-resistant. Alternatively, if you’re a small family, your needs might be more flexible.
Your cabinets and countertops should coordinate your home's design. For example, traditional cupboard sand countertops in a light, airy, and urban contemporary home may not exactly work with the home's decor. There is an overwhelming choice of cabinet styles, from the Shaker-style (known for simple lines and a distinctive look) to the glass front, beadboard, flat-front; plywood, and unfinished wood cupboards.
As for countertops, popular materials include quartz, granite, soapstone, marble, ceramic and porcelain tile, solid surfaces like laminate, stainless steel, and concrete. Depending on your style and what you want in functionality, one of these will fit the bill. If you are looking for an elegant, luxurious feeling, granite is a good option; for a unique antique-like patina, consider soapstone and marble is impressive, opulent, and palatial.
