I am using this article as my go-to piece as I plan and undertake new kitchen countertops and a farmhouse sink. I’ve read it a few times and learn more with each reading. Thanks so much!

Hi Margaret if you need to visit a showroom Cosentino (manufacturer of Silestone) has showrooms all over the USA. They also have granite and marble so you can do one stop shopping within their showrooms and also view full displays and slabs. Checkout their new product Dekton (sintered stone) for indoor and outdoor applications. The new Stonika collection is stunning.

Awesome article Lyndsye Felsman! Quartz Countertops are durable, nonporous, stain-resistant and easy to clean, perfect for any kitchen. Last week I remodel my kitchen from Apex Kitchen and Bath LLC. They have a wide variety of custom made cabinets, countertops and also great service. Craftsmen and showroom staff were very professional and polite.
