Granite is one of our most popular choices. Granite’s elegant look, low maintenance and high durability make it the preferred surface material by many high-end kitchen designers.

With a wide variety of colors, granite is easy to integrate into any existing kitchen, bathroom, or office design, whether it’s traditional or contemporary.

Engineered Stone

Similar to granite in many ways, engineered stone is a great option. The surface is made of crushed quartz and its nonporous surface is scratch and stain resistant, making it easier to clean. Engineered stone has the look of granite or marble, but with more color options.

Engineered stone’s extra durability and low maintenance is perfect for kitchens, offices, and bathrooms. And like granite, engineered stone compliments traditional and contemporary spaces. Popular brands include Silestone, DuPont, and Cambria.

Marble is a classic style that’s instantly recognizable. Marble is a softer stone, so it will require extra maintenance. But many find the elegance and luxury that marble brings to your home to be worth the extra effort.

Solid Surface

Solid surface is a great alternative to stone countertops. Solid surface is a synthetic material that is custom fit for a seamless appearance. Like engineered stone, solid surface is also nonporous making it easy to clean and resistant to mildew and allergens for hypoallergenic needs.

Solid surface will make any stand out in a contemporary kitchen, bathroom, or office. Custom countertops are available from Avonite and Corian.
