If you’re considering a new countertop, you probably already know that some of the most popular surfaces are natural stone. However, you may not be aware that new manufactured surfaces, enhanced by mixing granular stone with unique compounds, are gaining attention due to their appearance and performance.
On the other hand, manufactured composites such as engineered stone (generally referred to as quartz, and known by various brand names) offer a wide range of colours and tones to fulfill most kitchen designer dreams. Made to exacting formulations, these easy-to-clean surfaces are durable and require no maintenance. When it comes to countertops, the choices seem to keep getting better.
