Stones of Distinction

When selecting the perfect stone for your kitchen or bath, it’s important to consider quality, color, function and of course, price. Today’s options for stone may seem infinite, but choosing the right one can not only transform and enhance your space, it can also add value to your home. With a few helpful tips, you’ll be ready to take the leap into the glorious world of stone!

 

man-made quartz2

Man Made Quartz (Cambria, Hans Stone, Silestone)

Pros: This is a non-porous, maintenance free, stain and mildew resistant stone.  The color choices are predictable because it is man-made, so what you see in a small sample is what you’ll get!

Cons: Without the natural variegation of granite, quartz can often have an ‘engineered’ appearance. This is a pricey stone. Expect to pay $40-$100 per square foot installed.

 

 

marble2

Marble

Pros:  It is a beautiful and timeless stone that adds depth and character to any room. It stands up well to heat (and is a great surface for pastry making because it stays cool!)

Cons: It can stain easily even with sealing. Marble can also scratch and chip, and is a bit costly at $40-$100 per square foot installed.

 

 

soapstone1

Soapstone

Pros: There is a natural softness and depth to this stone. Soapstone is generally light gray when installed, but darkens over time and use.

Cons: This is a high maintenance stone, and must be oiled to keep from cracking. Knives can scratch this surface easily and, because it is a rough surface, it can also leave marks on your glassware and china. Definitely one of the higher priced stones at $70-100 per square foot installed.

 

 

granite 2

Granite 

Pros: The beautiful colors and patterns in granite make each piece one-of-a-kind. This is a durable stone that stands up well to heat and knife nicks.

Cons: It is porous, so be sure to seal your granite to avoid stains and to maintain its luster. The cost ranges from $30-$100 per square foot installed.

 

 

corian2

Corian

Pros:  A solid surface, non-porous stone, Corian is almost maintenance free with no sealing required. A wide variety of colors and patterns are available to choose from, and can be made with a seamless installation.

Cons:  No sealing is needed, however, it can scratch and is susceptible to burns (which can be sanded out.) It can sometimes look artificial, but costs as much as genuine stone at $35-$100 per square foot.

Discover the stone that works best for you by acquiring various styles and color samples. Look for stones that will accent your cabinetry, and be sure to pay attention to the lighting in the room. No stone is perfect, but all will provide you with many years of enjoyment!
