Quartz is actually a manufactured countertop. It’s created by mixing ground quartz, pigments, and resins together. The resulting product is incredibly durable, and also free of natural blemishes like cracks and divots. Quartz is also non-porous, making it moisture-repellent, stain-resistant, and easy to sanitize.
Granite countertops are made from natural slabs of rock. Since they aren’t human-made like quartz, each granite countertop is completely unique. It features its own mineral veins, sediment patterns, colors, and so on. Granite is also exceptionally tough, although it does have natural imperfections that can lead to weak points.
With its creamy complexion and elegant swirls, marble is a standout countertop choice. Like granite, it’s cut from natural stone. It’s softer than both quartz and granite, making it more susceptible to damage from knives and other forms of wear. Many marble countertops also need to be regularly re-sealed since they’re inherently porous. Many homeowners choose to go with marble for their vanity countertops as bathrooms see less wear and tear over time than kitchens.
