The countertop selection process is an exciting time for homeowners! Countertops represent a considerable amount of your kitchen and bathroom’s visual landscape.

Classic White Quartzite

As its name suggests, this stone is predominantly white with faint grey and black veins. It makes for a fantastic countertop option for both the kitchen and bathroom counters. Its luxurious elegance closely resembles that of marble, while offering increased durability. Homeowners and interior design professionals love quartzite because it bridges the gap between marble and granite countertops. You will still want to take preventative measures when maintaining it, like always using a cutting board and sealing your countertop twice per year with a safe product like Mr.Stone's Superior Zero Ultimate Stone Sealer.


Picasso Quartzite

This distinctive quartzite appears as the name suggests, like a Picasso painting. It is abstract and quite busy in appearance, with wavy lines and a variety of shapes throughout it. Picasso quartzite also quite colorful, and appears purple and beige in the right illumination. Since no two quartzite slabs are identical by nature, it is an one-of-a-kind just like a Picasso painting. Like other types of quartzite, it is also quite durable, so it is suitable for moderately busy kitchens, although granite is still the preferred option for more active areas. As with all other quartzite stones, proper precautions should be taken to keep the masterpiece you purchased looking fresh and new.
