There are many types of kitchen countertops that you can install in your home. Two of these are natural stone and stainless steel. Here’s a short summary of the differences and benefits to both types of kitchen countertop materials.
Stainless steel countertops are metal, and are the most hygienic of all countertop materials. They are often made of a single molded piece, and can be very expensive and heavy. They also give a more industrial and modern look to your kitchen, similar to a restaurant. They can get scratched or dented fairly easily, so you should take care with them.
Stone countertops like marble, granite, quartz and so on, are very durable and are considered a very luxurious option for kitchen countertops. They are not as expensive as stainless steel, and have a more natural look due to the unique patterns in the stone’s coloring. Depending on the type of stone you choose, your countertops can be quite easy to maintain and last many years.
Both stainless steel and natural stone countertops give different styles and have different benefits and drawbacks as a kitchen countertop material. For a full consideration of your natural stone kitchen countertop options, contact Empire Marble & Granite today.
