Types of Countertops
The two most popular types of countertops are granite and quartz. Granite is a natural option, while quartz features a special construction for extra durability.
Granite countertops continue to be popular in kitchens because they are stylish and durable. Granite is naturally resistant to most stains, and it is usually sealed and treated to prevent scratches. And, since granite is naturally-occurring, your countertops will be one-of-a-kind.
Quartz looks pretty much exactly like granite, but it is infused with materials such as resin for extra durability. As such, quartz countertops can handle scratches, scuffs, and moisture, so it is a great option for bathrooms and kitchens. Also, quartz tends to be less expensive than granite.
