When it comes to choosing countertops and other surfaces for your home, it can be hard to narrow down the best stone for the job. Not only are there so many color and design options, but each type of stone boasts its own unique benefits. From granite to quartz and marble, Stonesmiths Inc. offers an impressive variety of products for a wide range of home projects. Let’s go through the different benefits of three of the most common types of stone used for countertops, and you can determine which stone will best suit your family’s needs.
Benefits of Granite
Granite is a premier choice for creating a beautiful, durable surface in your kitchen or bathroom. This natural stone is heat and water-resistant and comes in a rainbow of colors and patterns. Between its beauty and durability, granite will add value to any space. Plus, Stonesmiths Inc. hand-finishes all products to ensure an end result that is aesthetically pleasing and built to withstand wear and tear.
Benefits of Quartz
Quartz is made from one of Earth’s hardest minerals, making it an ideal material for a long-lasting and durable countertop. Unlike natural stone slabs that are mined, quartz slabs are engineered in a factory. They are fused with resins that make them non-porous and able to resist scratches and stains. Quartz countertops are a popular choice for kitchens due to their durability, easy care, and many color options.
Benefits of Marble
Marble is often chosen for surfaces inside homes due to its elegant, polished look. The experts at Stonesmiths Inc. don’t typically recommend marble for kitchen counters though, since it’s a softer stone that can be scratched. However, marble’s spectacular beauty is ideal for bathrooms, fireplace surrounds, and offices. Marble is made to last and will hold up against water.
