Quartz Countertop

Quartz Countertop

Like other hard surface countertop materials, quartz is non-porous so it resists staining much better than granite, marble and concrete. For cleanliness, a non-porous surface means that it will not harbor bacteria or viruses.

Granite Countertop

Granite Countertop

Granite is tougher than most common countertop options like Formica, and it stands up well to regular wear and tear. Because granite is such a hard material, it resists scratches–cutting on it will damage your knives, but not your counters!

Soapstone Countertop

Soapstone Countertop

Soapstone is also very durable, and some soapstone sinks and countertops made in the 1800s are still in use today. Because it is a soft stone, it is more pliable and much more resistant to cracking than other countertop materials. Another benefit of soapstone is its heat resistance.

Marble

Marble

Marble is a natural stone, so it's more resistant to scratching, cracking and breaking than many other available countertop materials. In spite of its durability, marble is softer than granite, so it's possible to incorporate attractive design elements, such as fancy edges, during the fabrication process.

They can add a more warm and rustic appearance to any kitchen.
