Luckily, there are contractors in Long Island, NY who can readily take on the challenge of helping you customize your kitchen countertop. However, with so many ways with which you can customize your countertop in the kitchen, they will need a specific design direction.

Countertop Material

Kitchen countertops can be made with numerous materials that will produce a unique surface design and texture. Keep in mind, some of these countertop materials require higher maintenance than others are.

Whether you are looking to renovate your kitchen countertop or build one from scratch, available materials include granite, soapstone, marble, concrete, cement, copper, quartz, tile, stainless steel, and zinc. If you want to be eco-friendly, you can also have your kitchen countertop built from recycled glass, recycled paper, Bio-Glass or bamboo.


Unbeknownst to most, you can create a custom color for your kitchen countertop. You can even ask your contractor to create a color shade that matches your home's wallpaper.

Embedded objects

You can make your kitchen countertop more interesting by adding in some colored glass, semi-precious stones, metal flakes or your own personal keepsakes. Once these are embedded, the surfaces become finely ground, giving everyone a peek of the objects you have hidden within.


You may not want to stick with the usual pointy edges for your kitchen countertop, especially if you have a toddler running around. You can have the edges made round or even layer them. For the latter, you can choose between cove, bead, wave or concave.

When you decide how you want to customize your kitchen countertop, set up a meeting with Long Island kitchen contractors through a company like Contractor Express.
