Using custom stone work in your kitchen design is one of the trendy things currently. Stone has a very unique look which can create an amazing feel to your kitchen design. Granite, Marble, Slate, and Soapstone are the most common types of stone used in kitchen design and depending on the application each type of stone has its benefits and drawbacks though. When choosing a stone to use with your kitchen design, take into consideration how much maintenance you’d be alright with.

Porosity is one of the main factors to look at when choosing a stone for your kitchen design. Although all stone is porous, some are more so than others. A sealant is commonly used to reduce the risk of stains. Granite is one of the most porous stones due to the calcite it contains, so a thick sealant is used to protect the stone from foods and acids that may be used on it.

A stones mineral content determines how hard or soft the stone is. Soapstone is a fairly soft type of stone which is great for a splash back or stone tiled wall in many kitchen designs. Kitchen designers will let you know how soft a stone is and how easily scratched, which can dictate where its best used.

Stone is also graded similar to diamonds, on a scale of A to D. Stones with the fewest inclusions and lowest amount of veining are graded closer to A. A kitchen design using high grade stone will have a much nicer outcome; however will cost quite a bit more. Depending on the type and amount of stone used, a kitchen designer can let you know what grade of stone is best suited for your project.
