If you’re a passionate home chef, ceramic is the most durable choice, as it is perfect for areas which are regularly affected by food spills and splashes. Quartz is also a good choice for kitchens, as it’s not affected by acid foods and it is rather scratch resistant too.
Granite and quartzite are both natural stones, which means that they are sturdy but porous materials, and need occasional maintenance. They work best for kitchen islands or sideboards where there is less splashes.
Marble is the softest stone material, so any oily, acidic or colourful foods may leave permanent marks. If you embrace the patina as a design feature rather than annoyance, marble will be a stunning choice for your home.
