Quartz or Granite Kitchen Countertops?

They’re both considered high-end, desirable materials — status finishes, but they’re also practical choices with very few disadvantages. Because granite is a natural stone, it should be treated periodically to prevent stains from penetrating its surface — making it a more high-maintenance option than quartz. Granite can also crack or break at pain points if something heavy is dropped on it. Quartz can burn. A hot pot or pan placed directly on quartz can leave a permanent ring on your countertop. Quartz can also scratch if you cut directly on the surface.

Are you tough on countertops? Go with granite.

If you really wanted marble, but it’s not in your budget, then you’ll love quartz.
