There are so many decisions to make when you invest in a kitchen remodel, and one of the biggest decisions is what type of countertops to install. Homeowners want something that is both aesthetically appealing as well as durable, and Stonesmiths Inc. has several stone options for new kitchen countertops that will be just that. Let’s take a look at some types of stone, and why each one might be best for your kitchen.

Stone Kitchen Countertops


Granite is the most popular option for natural-stone countertops and is a premier choice for creating a beautiful, durable surface. There are so many colors and patterns to suit any style, ranging from white to black and everything in between. Granite is perfect both for those who prefer a more neutral countertop to blend into the kitchen, as well as those who want a bolder statement countertop. Part of the appeal of granite is that it is stain-resistant, heat-resistant, and long-lasting, making it a great investment for your home.


Marble is a high-end natural stone, popular for its elegant look and sophisticated appeal. It is softer and more porous than granite but is known for being an ideal baking work surface thanks to its resistance to heat. Marble requires a little more maintenance than the other stone types but can be a beautiful, cost-effective choice. 


Quartz is made from one of Earth’s hardest minerals, making it an ideal material for a durable and long-lasting countertop. The fact that it is very customizable in terms of its appearance and easy to maintain makes it a popular choice. Quartz is less porous than granite and marble, and therefore it holds fewer bacteria than the other stone surfaces. That also means that this almost indestructible countertop never needs resealing.
