While marble makes a smooth, cool surface for rolling out pastry dough, it stains too easily to be practical for general food preparation. It could serve handsomely, though, in the less rigorous role of a backsplash. Granite, probably today's most popular high-end counter material and one often used in "period-inspired" kitchens, would have been rare in early 20th-century houses. A process to cut granite slabs as thin as 1 wasn't discovered until the 1930s, and the material remained prohibitively expensive until the 1960s.
You need to consider not only the countertop, but also the backsplash in generally, any protective material behind the sink and counter. As with sinks, any number of materials were used at any given time, but there are historical patterns in the use of metals, wood, ceramics and stone, and laminates.
One of the most dramatic design changes that Katie initiated was the integration of the extensive outdoor patio with a (soon-to-be) newly refurbished kitchen. Accordion French doors not only showcase the manicured lawn when closed, but can also be effortlessly opened, making the kitchen feel as though it itself is en plein-air.
