Granite is not only beautiful, it is one of the hardest substances on earth, making it a great choice for kitchen countertops.
It is extremely hard, resistant to scratches and is not sensitive to acids like marble. The colors and patterns that granite offers range from neutral to absolutely breathtaking.
At K&D, we offer a wide variety of granite colors to suit your design needs. View our granite database to see color options.
This rich, elegant stone is a staple of traditional and period designs. When it comes to sheer beauty, few materials rival marble.
Though beautiful and timeless, Marble is a much softer and porous stone than many other choices. At K&D Countertops, we work with clients to really educate them on the pros and cons of choosing marble for a countertop. Marble has a tendency to stain easily and is best reserved for spaces that don’t get as much use as in the kitchen. Marble makes for elegant bathroom vanity’s, cozy fireplace surrounds and is even a great choice as a smaller part of a kitchen for those who love to bake.
We have a wide variety of marble types in our marble database to suit your design needs.
Ron Pope, an American singer-songwriter, wrote a song called, “If You Were a Stone.” Have you ever wondered what kind of stone you would be, if you were a stone? Perhaps you’d be granite, nearly impervious to daily stresses. Or maybe you would be marble, because you are admired for your unrivalled, classy style. But if you are known for making the people around you feel as comfortable as their favorite pair of jeans, the you may be soapstone.
Soapstone is a terrific material for the kitchen, as it’s unaffected by heat (proven by its historical use for stoves). Being chemically neutral means that acids like tomatoes and lemon juice won’t damage it, and its density makes it impenetrable by everything, including bacteria and would-be stains. At K&D Countertops we can fabricate any size or layout countertop you desire as well as the very popular “Farmer’s sinks” that really adds to the old world charm of Soapstone.
