When the time comes to remodel or renovate your home, choosing kitchen and bathroom countertops is one of the most important items on the list. But how do you know which slab is right for you?

Here is a quick overview of what each natural stone slab we offer can contribute to your home.

Quartz

This stone is an engineered material that comes in multiple colors. It is a great choice for kitchens as it is scratch-resistant, easy to clean, and does not require any sealing. One factor to keep in mind, quartz is not extremely heat-resistant, so choose placement with caution.


Marble

This stone comes in a variety of different hues, such as pinks, greens, and neutral tones. Traditionally, it is not recommended for kitchens due to its high susceptibility to staining but rather for your bathroom. Sealing is an option but it requires more maintenance on professional measures.

Granite

This stone is luxurious and durable. It has the wow factor yet it is functional due to its scratch-resistant properties. Granite is more expensive and has the potential of chipping, however, it is an ideal stone for the kitchen.

Porcelain

This stone is more for the contemporary eye due to its creamy glaze. There are a wide variety of options for color variations. Porcelain is non-porous and extremely easy to clean.

Quartzite: This stone originates from sandstone, a hard metamorphic rock that is extremely strong. This slab is for those looking for a long-lasting surface, but also one of beauty as it sparkles with high heat.

Soapstone: This stone is unique and sleek. For those searching for a more natural, rustic look, soapstone is the slab for you. It comes in a variety of colors and is one of the most durable stones. Soapstone is not a soft stone, making it incredibly difficult to stain.

Slate: This stone is versatile, great for your kitchen or bathroom. As a non-porous stone, it is easy to sanitize and is stain-resistant from extreme acids like wine and lemon juice. Slate has a satin smooth texture that invokes a warm welcoming feeling.
