Slate, Granite or Quartz?
We are trying to decide on the best of these three materials for our kitchen countertop - assuming we can find them all in roughly the same price range. We don't really like the shiny surface of granite, but are tempted by the durability and ease of maintenance with it. We've also heard bad things about honed granite. Quartz seems like an okay choice, but pricey for something that isn't even entirely natural stone. slate intrigues us for its matte appearance, but we aren't sure of how it compares to granite and quartz in terms of maintenance (scratches, chips, etc.)any thoughts or suggestions would be really welcome.
