Top Five Natural Stone Countertop Colors
Are you ready for a change in your kitchen countertops, but aren’t quite sure where to start? Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up our top five selling natural stone countertop colors to help guide you through the process.
Our top sellers range from granite and marble to quartzite and soapstone, so we’re sure this list will help you find the perfect material that meets your lifestyle and design preferences.
Granite is a premium natural stone that is known for its unique beauty. Mined from the Earth in large blocks and cut into slabs, the material is polished and popularly used for kitchen and bath countertops. Granite is very durable against scratching and etching, as well as heat.
This White Fantasy countertop is timeless, beautiful and can fit into any design style imaginable!
2. Alabama White
Marble is one of the most sought after and versatile natural stones available. Well known for its timeless style and air of luxury, marble displays gorgeous dramatic veining that is unmatched by any other material.
Alabama White’s unique veining makes for stunning statement pieces in any sophisticated home. It’s no wonder this color has been a staple for so long!
3. Black Soapstone Honed
Soapstone has a soft color that starts out as light gray but oxidizes over time to appear as a dark charcoal/green shade. The occasional coat of mineral oil aids in this oxidation process and helps the stone achieve its rich color. Soapstone is a low maintenance choice for many applications, from countertops to replacements. It is resistant to stains and heat but can be prone to scratches and dings with use.
As 2022 starts seeing a trend towards dark accent countertops, Black Soapstone has seen an incredible increase in popularity. This beautiful color creates a bold space for anyone looking to modernize their home.
4. Avenza Honed
Marble can come in a beautiful, matte finish often referred to as “honed.” This finish is a result of stopping short of the last stage of polishing, leaving the stone with a non-shiny, matte look and velvet-like touch.
Avenza’s swirls of grey and lavender pair beautifully with a matte finish- it’s no wonder this color is one of our most popular! We are finding that many homeowners are leaning towards grey surfaces so this has become one of our biggest top sellers in 2022.
5. Mont Blanc Nuova
Through a process of high heat and pressure, sandstone is transformed into an extremely hard natural stone called quartzite. Generally found in neutral white, grey and brown tones, quartzite has the appearance of marble but is closer to granite in terms of durability against scratching and etching. Finishes for natural stone vary by availability.
The Mont Blanc Nuova stone is a beautiful alternative for anyone looking to incorporate a durable, but natural element to their home!
