How To Choose Natural Stone Countertops
Whether you’re simply updating your countertops or remodeling your entire space, you need a stone that goes with your design and style. Before making a selection, ask yourself several questions. Will the countertop be in a bathroom, kitchen, or other space? Is there a specific edge profile or fabrication you’re looking for? How large of a space are you trying to cover? What aesthetic are you looking for: elegant, rustic, natural, Mediterranean, or modern? Be ready to answer these questions when working with a designer.
Different natural stones have different characteristics, so one may work better in your kitchen than others. For example, marble is beloved in kitchens for its elegance and cool surface; however, it is more susceptible to staining than granite or quartz. A spilled glass of red wine could wreak havoc on your marble countertops. If you are trying to install a very large kitchen island, consider the fact that seams in most granite are highly visible because of the unique patterns.
Another factor to consider is the natural stone’s thickness and softness. Softer stone, such as marble, is easier to fabricate. This means you can get more ornate edge profiles and shapes from marble than a harder stone like granite. If you want your countertop to look thicker, you might consider a laminate edge.
