There are a few important things to factor in – practicality, your lifestyle, budget and of course the look that you’re going for in your kitchen. Marble is popular because of its timeless look but requires a bit more maintenance than other stone due to its reaction to acidic products and its lower resistance to staining and scratching. Quartzite and Granites are made up of similar properties and are as hard and almost as durable as each other. Here your deciding factor would be the look you’re after – Granites are generally darker, but Quartzites are known for unique colours and patterns. Many quartzites are also mistaken for marbles, some are very white and veiny. Quartzites are perfect for those who want the look of marble with the durability of granite.
Trendstone, our reconstituted stone range pretty much can’t go wrong! Its advantage of being man-made is that it can be marble-look but uniformed and highly durable, requiring little to no maintenance.
