Granite countertops have been the standard for many years because it's a natural stone with great durability. Granite is available in a range of dark and light colors with all sorts of flecks and variations. Another unique feature of granite is that it can be cut with a variety of edge choices, including square, beveled, ogee (which is an S-shape), as well as half and full bullnose.
This natural stone instantly elevates a kitchen, giving a clean, contemporary feel. There's nothing else that looks quite like a bright white marble finish, but marble countertops are available in other colors as well, including shades of gray, brown, taupe, and even green. No two marble countertops are exactly alike.
Do you have a large family, cook a lot of meals or just want to make sure you invest in an all-around durable countertop that's built to last? Then quartz could be the best choice for you. You might be surprised to learn that quartz countertops aren't made of 100 percent quartz but rather they are a composite stone engineered from natural quartz combined with a resin binder.
Granite is heat-resistant, so feel free to take pots directly from the oven and place them on the granite counter. No trivet needed! However, it isn't wise to cut directly on granite; this stone is so hard that it will dull your knives.
This stone is certainly not the most practical choice, however. Marble is softer than other natural stones, so it's important to be careful and invest in proper cutting boards. If you cut directly on marble, it will scratch.
Because they're man-made, quartz countertops are a great way to get the look of natural stones like marble or granite without worrying about durability.
Onyx stone is the only semi-precious stone that is used for both jewelry and home interiors (i.e. countertops, vanities, etc..) That’s an accomplishment! The beauty of onyx draws many people in. The ability to 'backlight' onyx makes it great for accent areas and wall panels.
Quartzite is the hardest and most durable selection that we offer! Quartzite offers outstanding scratch and stain resistance. Although some of the looks are similar to marble, quartzite will not etch when exposed to acidic materials.
Onyx countertops require special care to retain their beauty. Onyx must be sealed upon installation and re-sealed at regular intervals, and should be polished occasionally. If there are spills, the stone should be cleaned immediately using a special formula cleaner. With proper care, your onyx will last for years. (onyxcountertops.org)
According to Daltile, "We recommend using a non-acidic, low pH cleanser such as mild soap and water or stone-specific cleaners easily found at your local retailer.” They also mentioned that not every quartzite has exactly the same makeup and you should always ask your sales rep if quartzite is right for your application. As with all stone, quartzite countertops should be sealed and resealed periodically (about every one to two years depending on usage)." (daltile)
