There is a vast range of kitchen countertops materials when you choose from the market. The main types of kitchen countertops materials is natural granite & marble or acrylic solid surface and so on.
Granite is one popular natural stone for kitchen countertops. Granite is highly resistant to chips and scratches.

But granite countertops have several cons, for example, its porosity requires that it be treated every six months with a sealer to prevent staining, and granite materials as kitchen worktops have a possible radiation for your family’s health.
Marble is also ideal for pastry making because it is smooth and cold to the hand-feel.
