Kitchen island countertopEach countertop material available at Planet Granite offers a unique, beautiful look for the Colorado Springs kitchen countertops or bathroom countertops available in your home, condo, or apartment. Aside from looks, there are differences between each of the countertop materials. This mini guide will cover the benefits of each type of material. If you are ready to learn more, read on to learn the difference between granite, marble, quartz, and quartzite.


Your Colorado Springs granite countertop can come in a fairly large range of colors. As one of the most durable and heat-resistant stones available in countertops, you can serve meals on them without any issue. The natural stone doesn’t come in every color under the sun, but there is enough variety for everyone to enjoy.


When you desire a unique look that can’t be replicated anywhere else, marble countertops are the way to go. Due to the unique veins in marble, no one can copy the exact countertop you have in your bathroom or kitchen. Be sure to keep acidic liquids and dark-colored items off of marble due to its porous nature. Wine will stain, so wipe it away quickly!


Quartz countertops are a popular option for many homebuyers who need a strong countertop that isn’t prone to chipping. Because of the flexibility of the stone, quartz is resistant to minor bumps and scratches. If you prefer neutral tones, quartz is sure to provide you with a pattern you enjoy.


Beauty and durability perfectly describe Colorado Springs quartzite bathroom countertops and kitchen countertops. Stronger than granite, quartzite is able to withstand the “uh ohs” and “oh nos” of family life. Be sure to keep quartzite sealed to ensure it keeps its beauty for years to come.

Selecting the right kind of countertop for you and your family takes time. When you’re ready to get started, contact our experts to schedule your countertop upgrade!
