Your kitchen countertop is presumably the most critical surface in your home, aside from your flooring. It’s the space your family uses the most; discussions in the kitchen are where most family meetings happen, meal preparation. The kitchen is where guests gather; it’s central for entertaining, too. Choosing the right countertop is an important decision. It can be a difficult decision since there are many different options, Quartz, quartzite, and Granite.

We have included a little bit of information below on all of the different types of countertops.

Quartz Countertops are Designed and Engineered for Quality
Natural stone slabs that are mined, quartz slabs are designed and engineered in a facility. Ground quartz is mixed with pigments to give it color and then blended with resin binders under extreme heat and force to form a solid slab. At times, metallic flecks and recycled glass may also be added to the mixture to create an eye-catching design. The production process has become more advanced over the years and can now create veining, swirls, and color variations that render it equal in appearance to natural stone. Once the quartz material has cured, it may be polished, honed, sandblasted, or embossed to create a glossy or matte finish or various textures.

Quartzite countertops
Harder than granite with the look of exotic marble, natural quartzite countertops offer the best of both worlds. Its strength will ensure natural quartzite countertops will have a long beautiful life, free of flaws like scratches and etching. This beautiful natural quartzite collection includes traditional, highly varied colors and natural cleft finishes along with more contemporary options.

Granite Countertops

The stone is naturally quite rough and textured, but when it is ground and polished during the countertop manufacturing process, it takes on a smooth surface with rich luster. Granite is comprised of a many different minerals that give each countertop slab a unique and attractive appearance.
