Posted on: October 24th, 2014 by Luke

White Granite countertops & Marble countertops are very popular in Chicago and all over the United States.

White granite countertops are beautiful and in demand. It looks great on both classic and modern kitchen & bathroom designs. Many people are familiar just with white granite and marble, but there is much bigger material selection.

There is many materials which are really great for kitchen countertops such as granite, marble, quartz, quartzite and also recycled glass. It really depends on your taste which one would be the best choice for you. Some people likes to cook and use their kitchen often. In this case you would need probably Granite, Quartz, Quartzite or Recycled glass countertops. Marble has great look and comes in beautiful patterns. Unfortunately it wears off pretty fast if you use your kitchen  extensively, but again some people like antique look of used countertops. It is really up to personal preferences.

Granite countertops are probably most popular from all materials mentioned above. Granite is strong material with huge selection of many different colors and patterns. Granite is a heat resistant, but needs to be sealed to prevent water penetration and staining. Since there is not so many white granites, white granite countertops are not very common. Luckily we have many other materials which comes in white colors. See below.

Marble countertops are beautiful and are used mostly for bathroom vanities. Some of the white marbles such as Calacutta White on the image above are used for high end kitchen countertops. This type of stone complements classic as well as modern design. Marble isn’t the best choice for the kitchen countertops, because it is softer than other materials and wears of much faster than granite or Quartz. Regardless this fact, white marble countertops are very popular  and in demand.

White Quartzite Countertops

White Quartzite countertops would be probably the best solution for people who like cool design of Calcutta White, but expect their countertops to be strong and long lasting. White Quartzite has beautiful vein patterns such as marble and it is harder than the granite. This means that quartzite countertops stays in a new like shape much longer than marble.  But again, some of us likes antique look of aged marble.

Image above shows granite countertops from today’s instalation in Chicago.

This Black granite is called Black Galaxy and as you can see it is black with little golden specks in it. This granite color is one of the more popular choices. Kitchen countertops are finished with straight edge. You can notice that countertop on the center island has overhang from three sides with slight radius on the longest side. This is very convenient especially if you are planing to use island as a sitting area. In this case we have enough space to comfortably sit five people. I really like the combination of white cabinets with the dark granite.
