Over one-third of homebuyers believe luxury real estate is the best long-term investment. Today, many buyers are drawn to the beautiful amenities that come with these lavish properties. Of all the features these residences may offer―from breathtaking swimming pools to premier home offices—the luxury of having an extraordinary kitchen stands out among homebuyers.
The grand finishes, state-of-the-art appliances, and beautiful backsplashes are sure to impress even the most discerning homeowner—but you’ll need the proper countertops to pull everything together. Making the right choice can create a kitchen that’s truly spectacular.

Kitchen Countertop Brands
We offer two of the world’s leading luxury brands in Sintered Stone countertops: DEKTON and Neolith. Sintered Stone is a manufactured product that replicates the look and feel of natural stone. These countertops provide the aesthetic benefits of raw slabs but with more color options and fewer maintenance requirements.
Cosentino, a Spanish manufacturer of ornamental and architectural surfaces, has developed DEKTON as its flagship brand of countertops. These countertops are created through advanced Sintered Particle Technology. This process combines porcelain, natural quartz, and glass to create a virtually indestructible material.
The blend of materials means you can use your new kitchen countertops for almost anything. You can chop vegetables right on the counter without fear of chipping or scratching. The counters are so strong that you don’t need to worry about damage from heavy pots that may accidentally fall on them.
And because of its high thermal shock resistance, DEKTON counters won’t get damaged from sudden temperature changes. You can use your new kitchen counters for years without worrying about scorching stains from coffee cups and hot pots left sitting too long.
Neolith’s unique micro-grain structure creates an ultra-smooth surface that resists scratches and stains. High-traffic kitchens are no match for Neolith’s surfaces. It’s durable enough to withstand the activities of even expert home cooks.
Its resistance to high temperatures makes it perfect for a kitchen island, where you’ll often find pots of boiling water and other hot pans.
Chemicals also don’t stand a chance against Neolith’s technology. Their counters are resistant to acids and oils.
UV light fades many kitchen countertop materials, but Neolith’s counters will remain as beautiful as the day you installed them.
Kitchen Countertop Colors
The color of your countertops can affect the mood of your kitchen. The right countertop color can make you feel relaxed, happy, and inspired.
You’ll feel like you’re at your favorite luxury resort every time you get coffee in the morning. And when you come home from the office, the elegance of your space will remind you that hard work lets you enjoy the finer things in life.
The wrong color, however, can make your kitchen feel depressing. You’ll be reluctant to spend time in it, so you’ll just grab your meals and go.
To make your kitchen a place you appreciate, choose colors that work well together and create an inviting atmosphere. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Our DEKTON brand features 40+ colors. You can choose between solid colors and textured patterns with beautiful veining that looks like marble. Below are some of our favorite color options, but feel free to explore our entire DEKTON catalog to find your perfect match.
If you’re looking for a stone that’s as neutral as it is beautiful, Aeris is the countertop option for you. Inspired by white limestone and its creamy tones, this color offers a look that’s both organic and elegant.
Pair Aeris with brown, gray, white, or blue countertops to soften your space. The countertops will fit right in without distracting from other elements of your kitchen design.
It’s hard to find countertops that fit into both classic and modern styles, but Aura has the perfect solution. The white background with gray veins is breathtaking when combined with sterling silver appliances or gray kitchens. It also works well in contemporary kitchens with stainless steel accents and bold colors like reds and greens.
Bromo is a dark gray background with delicate striations in white, creating a sleek appearance that makes white cabinets look even brighter. If you have darker cabinetry in your kitchen, this hue can give it a more romantic feel. In contrast, the depth and personality of lighter cabinets are enhanced by this color.
Liquid Embers is a dark, carbon-like design that visually simulates a hardened, swirled magma. The otherworldly feel of this color is sure to bring an extra level of drama and intrigue to your kitchen. Transform any interior space into a work of art with the ripples of Liquid Embers.
Neolith boasts a wider range of neutral hues in its palette. We have 20+ colors for you to choose from, ranging from muted white to shades of brown and dark gray. Browse the list below to find a style you like or look at our full Neolith collection for even more ideas.
Alexandra is a warm gray with darker gray veining. Its rich beauty evokes images of royalty and elegance. If you want your stainless steel appliances to look more refined, Alexandra will do the trick.
Pulpis is a tobacco brown hue with subtle white and golden veins. It promotes feelings of warmth and security. Pulpis’ earthy undertones give it a luxurious appeal that works well in any setting.
Colorado Dunes is a soft, inviting color that evokes the desert landscape. Dark gray and brown veining on a white background gives it an eye appeal that inspires thoughts of comfort. It also adds texture to your kitchen, making it feel homier than ordinary laminate countertops.
This color will work well with taupe or charlotte kitchens, creating that understated elegance your space deserves.
Abu Dhabi White
Abu Dhabi White is a subtle, shimmering white with soft, golden veins and gray speckles. This color evokes the luxury of Dubai while creating an atmosphere that is soothing and tranquil.
