Granite, Marble, or Quartz: What’s the Best Choice for Your Kitchen Countertops?

Choosing new kitchen countertops is an exciting decision, but with so many options, how can you know which is the best choice for you? Here are a few pros and cons to some popular kitchen countertop options:

  • Granite- Granite countertops are beautiful, and each slab is unique, creating a look you can be proud of. They are strong and durable, and with proper installation and care and a high-quality seal, they can last forever. Granite is a strong material that doesn’t chip or scratch easily, and when there is a chip, it can be easily repaired.
  • Marble- If you want to create a look of luxury and class, you want marble. Marble kitchen countertops come in a variety of rich colors with crystals that create a look of sophistication that will definitely catch your guests’ eyes. Though marble is a softer stone and does require care, stains and chips can be prevented with a little care. You’ll want to wipe up spills quickly and sealers can be added to provide extra protection without altering the stunning look of this stone.
  • Quartz- Quartz kitchen countertops are strong but flexible, so they are less likely to chip or crack. They’re also non-porous, so if you spill oil, vinegar, juice, or anything else, you can easily remove it with mild soap and a quick wipe down. We have quartz in a large variety of styles and colors, so you can find something to coordinate with any style you can dream up. While quartz countertops can withstand some heat, you do need to use caution with hot pots and pans.
