Luxurious Designer Countertops.
Natural Stone countertops possess unparalleled beauty that can only be provided by nature itself. The most common natural stone used for countertops are Quartz, Granite, Soapstone, Marble and Slate.
Quartz is considered one of nature’s hardest minerals. These beautiful engineered countertops also contain stain-resistant polymers and coloured pigments. Surfaces are generally stain-resistant, non-porous and chip-resistant making them easy to maintain and ideal for countertops. Quartz countertops have been dramatically growing in popularity in the past decade.
Soapstone is mainly composed of Talc mineral and is often used in laboratories due to its stain-resistant properties. However, Soapstone is generally softer compared to other natural stones; therefore, nicks and scratches may show themselves over time.
Granite is notoriously famous for its character with its unique grains and colours. Granite when properly sealed is one the most durable options on the market. Marble has an unrivaled classic look that will never go out of fashion, especially for those who love white kitchens in particular.
Marble is softer than granite and can scratch and stain easily compare to other options. Slate countertops are generally considered durable and non-porous. Therefore, they require less maintenance compare to Granite and Marble. However, they may lack the character offered by Granite or Marble.
