Kitchen Trends: Thick & Thin

One of my favourite Kitchen trends I've been seeing is lately is the changing thickness of countertops.  While kitchen and bathroom countertops have usually fallen in the 1-1.5" range, many designers have started to move away from this, opting for  either a much smaller profile counter (as thin as 0.5" thick) or a dramatically thicker countertop (at anywhere between 3-5"). While it may mean a larger investment to go against the status quo , I think it's definitely an area worth splurging on.  Whether you go for thick or thin, making your countertops more unique creates instant drama and glamour.  By drawing the eye to this area, you are able to make a statement and emphasize the natural beauty of the material.

Check out some of my favourite examples of each, which would you choose thick or thin?
