Shopper's Guide: Countertops
Think style, durability, and easy maintenance when choosing the countertop that’s best for your kitchen.
Pros: Beautiful natural material in a range of types (granite, marble, limestone, soapstone, slate, lava stone); long lasting; has enduring appeal; heat- and waterproof.
Cons: Solid slabs are expensive, stone tiles a less costly alternative; tends to stain (slate is the most stain resistant) and must be sealed for stain resistance; food acids etch marble.
