    Quartz

While it may be expensive, quartz is worth the investment. Unlike granite, quartz is not porous, meaning that it won’t absorb the liquids that can lead to staining and bacteria. Instead, that liquid slicks right off and is easy to clean up. In addition, quartz is highly durable; it is heat, scratch, and chip resistant. Add in the ability to have a wide range of colors, patterns, and finishing techniques, and you have the perfect countertop that looks like natural stone!
