Countertops and Finishes

Here are some quick tips to consider when thinking about buying stone for new countertops. If you are confused by what kind of stone to buy, you’re not alone. Everyone has heard of granite countertops, but there are other kinds as well.

Quartz

Quartz (above) is very popular, and we use it a lot in our design work. Quartz absorbs almost no water, so it is good for kitchens and bathrooms.

  • Stain-resistant
  • Acid-resistant
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Impact-resistant

 

Dekton

Have you ever heard of Dekton (above)? It’s the latest thing in finishes. It’s a very innovative finish that looks like stone, but it is not stone. Dekton is a completely manufactured, or handmade, product. (Glass is, too.) Dekton is another one that we use a lot of in our design work, because it is:

  • Stain-resistant
  • Acid-resistant
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Impact-resistant

 

Since Dekton is completely non-porous, it is even more resistant than quartz. Furthermore, Dekton can be:

  • Used for stairs, countertops, flooring–you name it–anything and everything.
  • Used indoors and outdoors.
  • Manufactured in any color, to look like any finish and texture–rippled metal–you name it.
