Granite is elegant, luxurious, and low maintenance, especially when sealed. Considered one of the hardest rocks, it is durable and withstands direct heat. Soapstone is visually striking with its deep color, silky feel, gorgeous veining, and antique-like patina. It's durable and resists stains and heat. Marble has a unique veining, meaning that no two slabs are ever alike. It is soft and porous, so ask about sealing.
What many don’t realize is that quartz becomes quartzite when it’s installed on the counter. The natural quartz undergoes a small (five percent) amount of manufacturing that makes it ultra-strong, non-porous, easy to clean, and completely bacteria-free. Tile is still the most popular choice, with a wide array of designs, shapes, and sizes that can be mixed and matched to create your unique creation. Tile is also affordable, low maintenance, and highly durable. Other materials include laminate (now available in a broad color palette and many patterns), cement, stainless steel, wood/butcher block, and solid surfacing.
