Contemporary Asian Kitchen With Lava Stone Countertops
The state-of-the-art kitchen features a meticulously designed chef's workspace, countertops of polished volcanic lava stone, subdued lighting and high-end cabinetry. The total cost for this kitchen was about $400,000, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
There’s no getting around it: Lava stone is gorgeous. It’s beautiful, with its amazing color, its luster and its you-can’t-quite-put-your-finger-on-it magnificence. It’s also literally one of the most expensive options in the world for countertops, sometimes ending up around $300 a square foot. The reality is, nothing will look like lava stone. But Paperstone, a composite countertop made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and non-petroleum-based resins, might just make you forget about it. It seems like a solid-surface material but is eco-friendly in almost every way you could imagine, and when you drink in its warm Cabernet color, you might just wonder why you ever considered another crazy-expensive option.
