Countertop Options

Selecting the Right Countertop for your Kitchen

For many people, it is tempting to pick a countertop purely based on its appearance. But factors such as durability of material, maintenance and price are also crucial and must be considered when you are making a decision about the best countertop for your kitchen remodeling project. At Marble Unlimited, we can help you make the right decision regarding which kitchen countertop to buy as per your needs.
Following are a list of some of the best countertop options that are available to homeowners today


Granite is a beautiful natural stone that lasts for decades. Granite is available in many colors and textures. Granite has been used for countertops over the years. Granite is durable, easy-to-clean and maintain and has a unique look. Granite is rated the best kitchen countertop material by leading consumer magazines.


Marble has been used for centuries in a variety of applications, including floors, walls, showers and countertops. Marble is a soft rock and can be etched and stained. Although sealers can help to prevent this, marble will naturally develop a patina. Although it is still stunning, it doesn’t remain the same bright white as it was when it was purchased. Marble is used often for countertops in homes that bake or make candy. It stays cool to the touch.


Quartz is a manufactured product made by combining the crushed mineral quartz with a resin. It doesn’t need a sealer, and it is stain-proof. Quartz is becoming more popular in modern designs. There are hundreds of colors and many brands to choose from. Quartz is manufactured so that it has a consistent appearance across a slab. Quartz is very durable and low-maintenance.


Quartzite is still a new term in this area. Quartzite looks like a mixture of granite and marble, but it’s actually harder than granite. Quartzite is often available in lighter colors and dramatic veining. This makes it a great choice for those who love marble but don’t like the maintenance. Quartzite countertops can be maintained and taken care of in the same way as natural stones.

So thankful for Jennifer and Marble Unlimited. They quickly saved my project when i failed to secure granite for a project we had at our home. From the first interaction, Jennifer was top notch and completely helped me quickly get the granite i needed. They really did it in less than a week. That service time from contact, to selection, to install is unheard of in today's market...yet Marble Unlimited did just that in 7 days. So very thankful for them. Prices were great as well. THANK YOU!!!

Everyone at Marble Unlimited exceeded my expectations and I am so very happy with how our new quartz countertops for our kitchen and laundry room came out. Everything from picking out the stone from all the many slabs they had to choose from, to receiving quotes, to the attention to detail in the measuring, and to the final installation(installers were awesome) was above and beyond. I highly recommend Marble Unlimited.

I am reviewing Marble Unlimited, which is in Hillsborough, NC. I chose a beautiful quartzite material from their stock, for our kitchen countertops, and I am completely delighted with the results. Our kitchen looks very sophisticated, and we get complements all the time. Thank you, Marble Unlimited for a job well done.

There's nothing like looking at huge slices of granite and marble in their stockyard behind the showroom. No samples will ever give you such a good idea of what you are buying. Daniel and the men working with the countertops seem to have some aesthetic feeling and love for the product. They were willing to work with us to give us this not quite finished countertop and mountain-themed backsplash.
