The Truth About Natural Stone Accents
Stone countertops are actually incredibly durable. Apart from an earthquake, stone remains one of the hardest materials that we all have access to. The fact that it’s gorgeous and each slab carries its own distinct character that renders it an amazing home accent. While each type of stone, depending on whether it’s more or less porous, needs a slightly different kind of care there are plenty of general rules, that when followed leave your stone countertops looking amazing for years.
How To Keep Natural Stone Countertops Looking Great
General care includes protecting your stone from extra hot temperatures from your recently used pots and pans like you would with any type of countertop material. Excessive heat causes thermal shocks to the stone which might cause cracks in the surface but that’s much easier to fix than some weird plastic countertop material that could potentially melt under the pressure of the heat.
