Differences in Kitchen Countertops:
Granite Kitchen Countertops
In our opinion granite is by far one of the best material you can have for a kitchen countertop. That is due to its durability, uniqueness, cleanliness, and overall functionality. Functionality like being able to cut, spill, and place hot pans anywhere on your kitchen countertop which makes cooking easier. There are many positives to having a granite kitchen countertop probably the most out of any material however there are also a few things like sealing, avoiding chipping corners, and the lack of artificial colors that some may look to other materials. See our Granite Countertops page for a more detailed list of pros and cons or speak for one of our experts.
Marble Kitchen Countertops
Marble is beautiful, unique, looks like a work of art, and makes an incredible kitchen countertop if used in the right way and with caution. The first thing anyone needs to know when thinking of using marble for a kitchen countertop is “maintance and care”. Unlike granite, or quartz, marble is not as dense and is more porous. Basically means that you need to seal it more often, avoid spills, and be aware that its not scratch proof. Its best not to use around a cooking area and while some people like the look of a “aged /slightly scratched surface” it might be a factor that convenes most people to use a different material. But if you really like the look of marble it’s hard if not almost impossible to replicate. Hence why designers love to use it in the right places like islands tops.

Quartz Kitchen Countertops
Quartz can be confusing to most people shopping for a kitchen countertop so lets clear it up. When referring to the kitchen countertop material “Quartz” we are talking about a “Man-Made / Processed” material also know as “Engineered Stone” or popular brand names like Caesarstone or Silestone. It is made from natural stone “Quartz” which is ground up and “Glued” back together. The quartz gives the countertop its strength and the glue (called resign) holds it together making it water/stain resistant and durable. The biggest downsides are the lack of “natural look” and not being as heat resistant as granite. But the biggest positives are it’s “lack of brittleness” and the artificial colors that you just can’t get in natural stone.

Soapstone Kitchen Countertops
Similar to marble generally people want soapstone because of it’s “Look”. It’s unique, old style, aged, and stands out as being what “real” stone should look like. While strikingly beautiful it also has it’s disclaimer that you need to know before using it as a kitchen countertop. First and foremost being that most soapstone is soft like marble meaning a bit more maintenance and care. There are some varieties that are more dense than others but most have the potential of a “aged look” aka scratches over time. Sealing is also done a little different and a little more involved. However, like marble if you get good advice on how to use and care for it then it’s beauty is worth the extra care. See our Soapstone Countertops page for more details.
