There are so many different countertop types to choose from. They vary from inexpensive, and poor quality to extremely expensive luxury items. It's important to understand that purchasing expensive countertops is not a bad thing, however, price is not the only way (or even the best way) to determine quality or durabiltiy. A larger price tag is well-worthwhile if the quality of the product matches the price, but unfortunately that simply isn't true. Most natural stones are priced based on rarity, an extremely rare marble - while durable and beautiful, is unlikely to stand the test of time as readily as granite which is a fraction of the cost, and neither marble or granite are as strong or durable as quartz, which begins at $40 per square foot installed. Doing your research and ensuring you are investing in the right countertop for your family could be one of the most important home design decisions you ever make. Our design staff is able to assist you in selecting a stone that will best suit your current lifestyle and aspirations for your home.
Picture yourself stepping into your dream kitchen space. You have a great layout, with plenty of room, and an ergonomic design, your cabinets look perfect, you chose exactly the right faucet and sink, then your vision lands on hideous countertops.
This unattractive mental image is unfortunately a reality for many homeowners that don't budget and plan accordingly at the beginning of their project and it prevents them from ever truly achieving a kitchen they are proud of. At Southern Stone, our granite starts at $35 per square foot which means you can have a beautiful, natural stone counter, for only a little more than you'd spend on formica. Since Granite and Quartz are both made from stone, you can count on them to last longer with simple maintenance, plus they are naturally anti-bacterial.
