The centerpiece in your kitchen matters, let us dive into the do's and don'ts. Choosing the right countertop material is essential to the longevity and how likely your stone could stain should all be accounted for.
To do our part and help: as a quartz brand, we reveal all details of our product to our clientele. The data that we disclose include product test data, water absorption rate (0.02), scratch resistance, heat resistance by degree, and informational videos on and offline as well as product certifications (SGS, NSF).
To lightly break it down, if you are a homebody and your kitchen is the starting and ending point of your day: do not use a countertop material ( some natural stones) that is porous and reactive/absorbent to any fluids. Fluids that can alter how your natural stone may look include apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, coffee, wine, cranberry juice, turmeric, beets, and even water! Imagine preparing dinner on a kitchen island that will soak fluid in and grow bacteria...
As a former distributor of marble, granite, soapstone, quartzite, and travertine countertop materials that are undeniably the best include: quartz, porcelain, and, sintered stone.
Although we may be looking at this from the technical side, the choice relies on many factors such as; budget, color/design preference, and if the area will be used heavily or not. So when it comes to color, choose a material that isn't super limited and you can't find it in a couple of months if need be! Complications may always arise in construction and especially in a kitchen remodel, so why be limited?
