Granite countertops are uniquely natural. It's carved from natural stone allowing every piece to be different and one of a kind. You won't find two granite pieces that resemble each other. This natural stone is very durable and can withstand heat and sharp blades. It doesn't scratch or stain easily. It's easy to clean and maintain. Note that the lighter colored granites are more sensitive so make sure to speak to your stone cutter to accurate information about the granite you are considering
I personally love granite and the Tag Mahal is my favorite.
The Caesar countertop is very popular among the different materials and is made of quartz that has gone through processing. It comes in many different designs some of which resembles natural stone. This material can't withstand very high temperatures therefore you should be extra careful while placing very hot items on it.
I've found it to be very easy to clean including stains which I thought were here to stay.
Porcelain is made by many companies. It has a vast variety of design and textures. It's a durable material that allows you to put a hot pot directly on the countertop, as well as cut food right on the surface. It does not stain and is easy to clean.
We recenty installed a Dekton top on a large dining room table. We are thrilled with how it turned out and our client's are loving how easy it is to maintain.
Dekton is a synthetic material. It's a strong countertop and keeps its color for many years even if exposed to sun. It's heat and scratch resistant, easy to clean and does't stain.
Corian is a synthetic material made of acrylic polymer and hydroxide aluminum. It is easy to work with and design allowing countertops and integrated sinks to be seemless. Be careful when placing hot pots on it and when using sharp items. If damaged, it can be refinished and repolished. Corian comes in many different colors and allows the creation of unique designs and shapes.
