Choosing Engineered Stone
Choosing between engineered stone brands can be exhausting. Products in the category are mostly quartz-based, possess the same sanitary certifications, and include comparable warranties. Deciding among them may come down to the details of color, finish, and availability. To aid in your search, here's a look at the most popular brands.
With more than 40 colors available in design stores around the country, Caesarstone is a leader in quartz-based engineered stone. From traditional looks to daring textures, the company offers and continues to improve upon its wide product range. Shown here is Excava, part of the Metropolitan collection.
Cambria boasts more than 90 design styles, each with a lifetime warranty. The luxury quartz-based brand has some of the most interesting and stone-like color options available, including imitation marble. No longer just found in specialty stores and distributors, Cambria has expanded to include a line available in specific The Home Depot locations. Here is Risegate from The Home Depot Collection.
