Stone countertops are a must in in our modern coastal aesthetic. They are not only functional and beautiful but can be a pivotal element to your design preferences. We love to use clean pieces of stone that give the overall feeling of a light and airy kitchen.
Stone countertops come in both manmade and natural varieties. Manmade are meticulously formed in a lab, and natural varieties are mined. Because of this, our manmade selection is usually Quartz. Quartz which is ground up particles of quartzite mixed with resin. Our main natural choices are marble or soapstone.
For looks alone we would always choose a natural stone but for durability, quartz is the way to go. We always asses our client’s needs and make our decision around that. Are there young children or grandchildren in the house ? Do they host a lot of parties? Will they cook a lot? Is there a way to mix in some natural and some manmade?
In conclusion, we believe the Stone Countertops choice should be made with lifestyle concerns in mind. That being said, as designers – visual appearance is (almost) always our first priority so if we can, we’ll be incorporating natural stone somewhere in your beautiful home.
