Kitchen Countertops | Surface and Natural Stone Types

Qualities of Natural Stone

In selecting stones for a new kitchen worktop, it’s important to consider how and where the material will be utilized on a daily basis. Natural stone has many different qualities, depending on how it was formed. Below are the three basic types of stone formation:

  • Igneous
  • Sedimentary
  • Metamorphic

The most durable of natural stone types is igneous stone or commonly referred to as granite. Sedimentary stone (examples are Limestone, or Travertine) is the least durable and can quickly develop a patina if utilized in a high traffic area. Metamorphic stone (examples are Marble, or Soapstone) also develop a patina and require maintenance.

Selection of a surface stone for your kitchen worktop should take into account the accumulated changes in surface texture and color that will result from normal use. A Counter Intelligence representative can assist you in selecting a suitable surface for your new kitchen.
