Is it time to give your kitchen countertops a facelift? Are you thinking about installing natural stone countertops, possibly for the first time? Natural stone countertops are a design trend everywhere you look these days. Elegant and durable, timeless and trendy...they are these things and more. What shade of stone might suit your lifestyle best? Let's take a look at three of the most widely chosen styles and their colors.

First, how about considering granite as your natural stone countertop? Granite has been the go to natural stone countertop for some time now. Once considered especially pricey, with its popularity in recent times, it is becoming a bit more affordable while still retaining its reputation for elegance defined. Granite comes in more than a thousand different colors, and it requires minimal maintenance to keep it beautiful and functional. You can start looking at materials by clicking here.

Next, Quartz stone is one you might want to consider. Is this a style that could suit your needs best? Quartz stone comes in many different colors, is easy to maintain, and, while a bit more pricey, it is worth the investment if you are looking for functional, attractive, and easy to maintain countertops.

Another option could be soapstone and marbles. This is a stone that is usually dark gray and smooth to the touch. Functional and appropriate for both historical homes and modern ones, it is a good choice for many. While durable, it does require a bit of maintenance with mineral oil, as it may darken or crack over time. There are many types of Soapstone that you can see here.
