Granite is a naturally hard stone that comes from the earth. Each slab has its own pattern, whether variegated or more uniform, and each is truly unique. Streaked granite can be used to impart a sense of movement to a room. Granite can be dramatic and get much attention in a kitchen or bathroom. Different types of granite may need to be sealed every few years to retain its stain resistance.
These stones are typically 93% quartzite and 7% resin-epoxy. Because it is an engineered stone, it has a low porosity and therefore some antimicrobial properties. Quartz comes in a wider variety of colors than granite and has patterns that are fairly consistent, so matching stones is never a problem. Because of its consistency, it will not detract as much attention from other "bling" elements in your kitchen.
Marble is a softer stone and its natural inclusions can lend an ambience to its room. Marble is expressive, but not to the degree of some granites or quartzes. More porous than the other stones, it may be better suited to finishing a bathroom than the kitchen, and can require more maintenance than an engineered stone like quartz.
