6 Stylish Kitchen Counter Pegs for Your Home

Find one that suits your personality and lifestyle


When it comes to giving the kitchen a quick makeover, you have different options—from changing the colors of the walls and decorating the cabinets to replacing the lighting fixtures and drawer handles. However, if you've been saving up for a big renovation, you can revamp your kitchen countertops into something more special aside from having the usual tile or granite ones.

Make this part of the home an extension of your personality by opting for any of these countertop ideas. Trust us, once you're done working on your cooking space, you'll feel more inspired to whip up some tasty feasts:


Those who love a clean and streamlined look can work with a simple color scheme of white paired with elements of wood. As much as possible, keep your counters free from clutter so you can work efficiently.

RL Tip: A tray can serve as catchall for items you use often. You may also want to set up a pretty vignette featuring a few accessories.


If you love to travel, we're sure you have a few coins left aside from souvenirs. Instead of storing them inside drawers, put them to good use by building a counter showcasing these pieces. The coins can spruce up the surface of your counters and serve as a conversation starter during snacks and get-togethers.


Are you the type who's always wired and glued to the computer? Add a quirky appeal to your space by using old keyboards as part of your counter. With keys attached on top of the surface and protected by glass, it will definitely showcase the things you love and catch the attention of guests.


Bring nature into your home by using salvaged wood as the focal point of your cooking area. This piece brings a unique natural and rustic charm to your space—keeping it special and one-of-a-kind.

DIY Marvel

If you're living in a condo, consider having a portable crate kitchen countertop that still packs a punch in terms of function and storage. Aside from being a space-saver, it can also be used as a coffee table when needed.

Homey and Modern

One of the best ways to bond with family is through a fun and delightful cooking session. If cooking is one of your passions and you love adding herbs to your specialties, you may want to build a special countertop with a niche where you can grow and care for herbs. A built-in planter also encourages you to use vegetable peels as natural fertilizers.

RL Tip: If you choose to have a similar counter, it's best to work with a professional to ensure proper installation and water flow.
