Stone Countertops: the Good, the Great, and the Beautiful

Homeowners have a lot of choice when it comes to countertops, and material is one of the first decisions most will make. If you have your heart set on natural stone countertops, you will be rewarded with beautiful surfaces in your home. Within this category, there is still a lot of variety, though! Read on to learn more about natural stone and stone counters or visit the showroom at PF Custom Countertops to see your options and learn more about the unique benefits of each.

Popular Types of Stone Countertops

Natural stone is a timeless and popular counter option for good reason; it is gorgeous and makes a huge impact in your space. Whether you need a new counter surface for your bathroom or kitchen, consider these stone contenders:


  • Granite – Popular, strong, and luxurious, you are likely familiar with granite countertops. New options with varied patterns, coloured veins and patches mean you can find something unique for your space. Granite is naturally porous, and thus highly susceptible to staining, so it is sealed before installation to increase its durability and appearance. Your granite countertops will need to be re-sealed every 10-15 years to keep them in great condition.
  • Marble – This other gorgeous and popular option is also porous, so make sure you include maintenance in your budget. It is also prone to chips and cracks, so if you or your family are particularly rough or clumsy, marble may not be the stone for you. The look remains classic, however, and will add dimension and grace to your kitchen or bathroom.
  • Quartz – If you want counters that are as strong as granite without the maintenance effort, quartz countertops are a good option. They are manufactured surfaces that come in a huge range of designs and finishes, so you will have a lot of variety to choose from if you opt for quartz.
