Granite kitchen countertops seem to be everyone’s favorite material year in and year out. It comes in many different colors with a lot of variations in each slab. This will match with any kitchen's color scheme while staying unique. It's a very strong surface, resisting both heat and scratches very well. It is the heaviest of the stone materials, so your cabinets will need to be reinforced to hold the weight. Like other natural stones, granite is very porous, so it will need constant sealing to prevent stains.
Marble is also another natural stone that brings a quiet elegance into your home, especially for the bathroom. Marble vanity countertops are the most popular choice because of their durability and look. They will stand up well to all the heated hair appliances in your bathroom while looking beautiful. Even with sealing, marble can stain as well as chip and break quite easily, which is why most people will use it in the bathroom or as a temporary dough board in the kitchen.
Corian solid surface countertops are an engineered product that were developed as an alternative to natural stone. Made from acrylic resins and other pieces, solid surface countertops can mimic the look and coloring of natural stone. It is not porous, however, so there's no annual sealing required. The seams can be fused together to avoid small cracks for dirt and bacteria to fester inside. Solid surface doesn't stand up to heat very well, as the hot material can leave behind scorch marks where a pot was set. It can also scratch easily from knives and other sharp objects.
Quartz kitchen countertops are a good compromise between natural stone and solid surface countertops. Chunks of quartz are bound together with resin and tinted with coloring to rival any natural stone. The resins create a solid, sealed product that stands up to staining. The natural pieces of quartz add the beauty of stone. Cambria countertops are the only brand manufactured with American products in American manufacturing facilities. Not only is it an American product, but there is less shipping cost not only for your countertops, but for all the materials used in it. Silestone countertops are the other popular brand of quartz countertops. The one thing that sets Silestone apart from other quartz materials is the bacteria fighting agents that are manufactured into the resins.
