Many types of natural stone are popular choices for a kitchen countertop, and of these, the most popular option is a countertop made from a solid slab of granite. Beginning life as a quarried slab of solid natural stone, granite countertops are fabricated to specification and installed by professional crews. Of the natural stone options, granite slabs are the most popular, and for good reason. Solid granite slabs make very heavy and durable countertops and improve home values. Slabs are a better choice than the other granite options—modular granite and granite tile.
The final natural stone commonly found in countertops is slate, which is quarried straight from the earth, cut into slabs. It is a surprisingly good material for countertops since it is relatively non-porous and resists stains well. Although most people think of slate as a dark gray or black stone, there are types that have shades of green or pink within them. Unlike soapstone, slate has some subtle veining, though less dramatically than marble. Slate countertops warrant consideration for homeowners looking for something unusual but subtle. There are surprisingly few downsides to slate countertops.
