Granite Countertops vs Quartz Countertops

Granite and quartz countertops are by far the two most popular countertop options that are chosen by residential customers when they are designing or upgrading their kitchen or bathroom. Ultimately, the decision between which countertop to choose comes down to style preference, durability, and maintenance (or lack thereof!). Below, we detail the differences between granite and quartz countertops.

Granite surfaces are natural stone countertops that have commonly been viewed as a luxury upgrade surface in kitchens and bathrooms. Granite slabs are an igneous rock that is extracted ("quarried") from below the earth's surface. Given that granite is a naturally occurring stone, no two slabs are alike which makes each countertop unique to that homeowner! Natural stone surfaces are typically quite busy, with a lot of variation in the stone. While there are some cool-toned granite options, most granite countertops are known for their warm color palette.
