Butcher Block: Wood product, best used for islands away from water sources/sinks. Medium durability – can absorb stains because wood is porous. Color is chosen by different wood stains, moderate to high in price. Tile: Durable if taken care of properly. Porcelain tiles can chip, crack or break if items are dropped on the counter. Grouting can also chip and discolor. Price is based on how expensive the individual tiles are. Can get expensive with hand painted and imported tile.
Granite: Very durable because it is stone. Since it’s porous will need to be sealed periodically. Granite is in the high price bracket. Concrete: Very durable although it is possible to crack. It can be molded into shapes and stained different colors. It too, should be sealed and is in the med range price bracket.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out, select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
