Kitchen Ideas – Sunnyvale – Natural Stone Countertops
A very popular option in kitchen countertops is natural stone countertops. They are so popular that Americans have now spent more on granite countertops (the most common type) than on the first gulf war.
There are however other styles, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
The options are; granite, marble, and quartz.
The pros and cons are listed in the table below.
|Stain Resistant||Pretty good||Pretty good||Excellent|
|Scratch Resistant||Excellent||Easily scratches||Excellent|
Granite is by far the most popular style, and of the three it definitely now has the lowest cost.
We have even seen recently where granite counter top material for a fairly standard sized kitchen is available for only $400.
I’ve heard this material comes from China and what makes it so cheap is the relative values of our two currencies, not that it’s inferior granite.
I’ve seen it and touched it and it looks and feels like any other granite.
One important consideration is there seems to be controversy about natural stone products emitting radon gas.
However I’m having trouble sifting through the claims to see how credible this claim is, or if the various countertop manufactures are trying to scare you away from competitors products.
