Is it time to wine and dine?

If you entertain often, choose a countertop that will be aesthetically pleasing and functional. Most exotic stone countertops like granite or quartzite provide a wow factor while being incredibly durable and long-lasting. Granite is heat, scratch, and mostly stain resistant, making it perfect for food preparation and entertaining. Not only does granite look great, but it also provides an ideal surface for everyday use. The only cons about natural stone countertops are that they come with a higher price tag and require sealing once every year or two. Regardless, natural stone is the way to go if you are looking for countertops that will wow your guests and last longer than any other option. Another great option is quartz countertops. While slightly more expensive than standard granite, quartz offers an elegant look without the maintenance.
