Before replacing your current countertops, be sure the new material suits your lifestyle. Porous stones like marble, limestone, slate, and soapstone require regular sealing to prevent stains, making them impractical choices for a high-use kitchen. If you're looking for a long-lasting natural surface, granite is a better choice. Harder stone isn’t as likely to chip, stain, or scratch, which means your kitchen redo won't lead to costly renovation regrets.
