Countertop Trends in 2014 | Creative Stone Choices | Engineered Stone Countertop | Decorators have started branching out into different stone types to work with the budgets and style preferences of home remodelers. While quartz and soapstone provide clean finishes, engineered stone is stain resistant, durable, and environmentally friendly. If you’re not afraid of heavy lifting, choose a heavy stone to set your countertops.
Unlike granite, engineered quartz has a uniform appearance and a nonporous surface that holds up well against heat and stains, and quartz costs about the same as midrange granite. Plus, granite needs to be sealed a few times per year, while quartz does not. We love this quartz countertop in Flagstone from Martha Stewart Living™, available exclusively at The Home Depot.
