At InovaStone, we offer marble, granite, quartz and porcelain worktops at competitive prices. Continue reading and find out everything about the stones we have to offer and what you can expect from each of them.
Marble is considered by many the most beautiful stone out there. It is recognizable by the veining, which can be very versatile. Marble is a very durable stone and it will handle pressure without cracking. However, marble can get scratched if you don’t use a cutting board.
This stone is also great at resisting high temperatures. Marble absorbs temperature from other objects quickly and it is always cool to the touch for that reason. It is a great option for kitchens because it handles heat well.
In our colour range, you can find some of the most classic marble types like Statuario and Carrara, as well as other lesser-known like Rosso Alicante and Guatemala.
Granite is the best stone at resisting high temperatures. You can postpone hot kitchenware without worrying about it getting stained and burned. It is also a very durable stone and you can cut directly on it without it scratching. It will handle loads and pressure without breaking or cracking.
Granite is not completely staining resistant, but it will not get stained by most foods and drinks. It is easy to clean with just water and soap. Granite worktops should be sealed about 2 times a year.
In our range, you can find colours from classic whites and blacks, to the greens and reds. We have a very versatile colour range with something for everyone.
Quartz is, unlike granite and marble, a manufactured stone. It is made of natural quartz and resins. It is a non-porous stone, which means it is almost impossible to stain. Quartz has a smooth surface which is very easy to maintain. It doesn’t need sealing and the cleaning is handled with only soap and water.
Quartz doesn’t resist heat as well as granite and marble. It is advised to always use mats and trivets when postponing hot kitchenware.
Quartz has the widest colour range since it is manufactured. With quartz, you will have the ability to choose from countless colour options.
Porcelain is a type of clay moulded on very high temperatures. It is also resistant to staining as well as quartz. Since it is produced on temperatures that are much higher than any temperatures in the kitchen, it will handle heat without issue.
Porcelain is the least durable material out of the three. It can crack or break when exposed to high pressure. However, it is still highly resistant to scratching due to its smooth surface.
Porcelain has a beautiful colour range consisting mostly out of neutral colours.
All mentioned materials are great options for made to measure worktops because you will have the ability to choose from countless options; it is just the question of your needs.
