Countertops are one of the largest visual aspects of any kitchen, so the material you choose can make a significant impact on the look and feel of the room. One of the first decisions you should make with kitchen countertops for new home builds is whether you’d like custom or prefabricated countertops. Custom slabs are natural or engineered stone that doesn’t have edging or finish applied until after purchase. They can be used for countertops, kitchen islands, and other custom surfaces. In most cases, prefabricated countertops are the best choice for most of our clients. They’re the same quality as our custom slabs, but they come with countertop-ready edging and typically cost 30-40% less. They’re the perfect balance of quality and value!

Another thing to keep in mind for your countertop installation is your usage and care requirements. While all the materials we carry are durable, some of them may be better for some projects than others. For example, marble is a gorgeous, eye-catching natural stone, but it’s softer and more porous than other types of stone. For this reason, marble isn’t recommended for high-traffic areas because it can become scratched or stained. However, quartzite and some types of granite are more durable – and they look very similar to marble! Our sales team would be happy to work with you to find the best options for your countertop installation. Our team is happy to go over the materials and their maintenance needs to find the best one for your Palo Alto home.

In addition to kitchen countertops for new home builds, we also offer bathroom vanities, cabinetry, tiling for floors, backsplashes and surrounds, BBQ counters, and fireplaces.
