Kitchen Remodeling – Granite vs Marble

kitchen remodelingWhen it comes to kitchen remodeling one of the common decisions homeowners have to make is about whether to choose granite or marble for their kitchen countertops. Both can look equally gorgeous and each comes with its own set of pros and cons. Before making your choice, here are some of the factors you should consider.

  • Granite is a tough and nonporous stone so it is more stain and scratch resistant. You could even technically cut on this surface without damaging it but may end up damaging your cutlery.
  • Marble on the other hand is more likely to suffer scratches and stains. However you can improve the durability with a sealer.
  • Both materials are fairly resistant to heat but you should still use a trivet as a buffer just in case.
  • Both are also fairly strong materials but marble is more porous and may be prone to chipping or cracking.
  • Granite and marble can both be sealed but it is almost a must with marble since it is porous.
  • However, of the two marble is often known for having the more elegant look even if only slightly
