Aside from Corian, tile, granite or marble countertops, you now have a variety of other manufactured stones like Cesar stone or granite or marble with different finishes, polished or honed etc.. Glass backsplash tiles or even the vintage, old-fashioned subway tiles are also another trend worth checking out. If your stove or cook-top is electric, induction cook tops are a growing trend and extremely efficient and fast.
