Lava stone is non-porous (similar to stainless steel and glass countertops) and isn’t easily stained, scratched, or adversely affected by heat. These benefits come at a price, however; lava stone is one of the most expensive options for kitchen countertops today.
As far as color goes, the options are numerous and so are the ways in which you can use them. Neutrals let the countertop blend in but, if you want it to stand out, pick a vibrant color. You can also use color to match the counter to other elements in the kitchen such as an accent wall, a cabinet, etc. or use different colors to define different functions. For example, one portion of the counter can be a prep space and can have a certain color while the rest can be a breakfast area with a different color.
Those considering butcher block as a kitchen countertop option need to decide which of the two finishes best suits their needs – the one for cutting and food prep, or the other for service and display. (Obviously, this is a critical choice.) Butcher block requires a bit of maintenance, including regular sealing, oiling, and occasionally sanding and/or resurfacing.
