How to Choose Between Quartz and Granite Countertops

One of the most common questions homeowners ask during the beginning stages of a kitchen remodel is which type of countertops they should choose. Countless colors, patterns, and styles are available, and then there’s the matter of the material itself. Two of the most popular stone materials that people often find themselves choosing between are quartz and granite. Corbella Kitchen & Bath will reveal the main benefits of these two countertop material options and what they offer.

Granite vs. Quartz Custom Countertops

The Benefits of Granite

You won’t need to worry about finding a granite design you love, as there are over 3,000 colors available. And thanks to its increasing popularity, its traditionally high price has decreased over the years. Granite has a high hardness rating and can resist heat, scratches, and other potential damage. Elegant and durable, granite is an excellent choice for kitchen countertops.

The Benefits of Quartz

If you need even more color options than are available with granite, quartz can offer you that! Quartz is an engineered stone with a non-porous surface that resists scratching and staining, making it an ideal choice as a surface for food preparation. Quartz does not require annual sealing, unlike natural stone. Homeowners love quartz for its longevity, beauty, and easy maintenance.

How to Choose

Granite and quartz are both viable options for your countertops, but it really comes down to what is most important to you.
