Little is more elegant than a stone countertop. When considering an entire kitchen remodeling project—or even just a little aesthetic update of your cooking space—remember that custom stone countertops are the new standard in kitchen elegance. Plus they add value, functionality, and visual appeal to the home. And whether it’s granite, marble, limestone, or the near limitless natural or manmade options, an experienced Virginia stone company can design and install countertops that will complement and revitalize your space.
Since there are so many stones to choose from, it is important to discuss all the options with your countertop installation company. Each material will have its own unique distinctions and differences, and homeowners may find some of these characteristics either beneficial or limiting, depending on the stone’s intended use. For example, some stone surfaces, such as limestone, are prone to staining and may be better suited for bathrooms than kitchens. Soapstone is a material that is relatively soft, but also resistant to moisture, so it’s a good bathroom or kitchen choice. The ever-popular granite is heat- and scratch-resistant, so it is an excellent stone for custom kitchen countertops.
