Quartz countertops from Cabinets To Go are made with 93% natural stone and 7% resin. As natural stone, it is extremely hard and resistant to heat. Because of the resin used to bind the stone, it is non-porous to resist staining and microbes. A gorgeous quartz countertop may cost a little more, but it gives you the benefits of both a granite and an acrylic solid surface.
Granite is gorgeous. It adds value to a home, which is especially great if resale is something that could be in your future. As natural stone, it’s sturdy, difficult to scratch, and resistant to heat, but because of its porous material, staining is a possibility. But not to worry! Most stains, even oils, can be easily removed.
Acrylic – also known as solid surface – countertops are the most economical choice. Plus, as they are made from resin, they provide a seamless look, are anti-microbial, and are non-porous for stain resistance. If your kitchen must endure the beating of your family, acrylic is a great way to marry durability, style, and price.
