Material to Replicate Existing Countertops


Several years ago we installed laboratory-type countertops in our newly remodeled kitchen. They are the standard dense black tops (epoxy I think) one inch think with a slightly beveled edge. The finish was uneven so we painted them with a mix of enamel and acrylic which has held up fairly well except for a few touch ups here and there. Well, the time has come to expand the kitchen and I can't get my hands on any laboratory countertops. Anyone have any ideas on materials that I could use to replicate the look and feel of the existing tops?

I've attached a couple of photos for reference.

Polished concrete is all the rage lately.

Soapstone is nice as well but probably not quite as durable as concrete.

Quartz. Not cheap but rugged.
