Granite is one of the most popular materials for kitchen countertops. It’s elegant and durable, so it’s been the top choice for both business and residential applications. But lately, quartz has been making quite a stir. Does this mean granite is going out of style? Not a chance.
The fact is, there’s room for more than one favorite countertop, and granite and quartz are each worthy contenders in their own right. They’re both high-end materials, attractive and durable, and available in a wide range of shades and patterns. Granite has a slight edge because it’s an all-natural product, quarried from the ground, while quartz is a composite of several different minerals. On the other hand, quartz typically requires less maintenance.
