OTHER NATURAL MATERIALS


While not as popular, Heritage Kitchen & Bath also offers the following natural materials:

  • Limestone & Travertines - featuring soft earth tones and providing great design flexibility. Being of a calcium-based makeup, limestones and travertines will have use and care characteristics similar to marble.  
  • Onyx - prized for it's unique colors and veining, but best known for its translucent properties allowing for stunning effects when backlit. The decorative appeal of onyx is unsurpassed by any other material. When compared to true marbles, onyx tends to have lower levels of resistance to both chemical and abrasion exposure. 
  • Slates - also have high resistance to chemicals but are generally harder than soapstone The same precautions applied to marbles with regard to abrasive damage. 
  • Sandstone - is a sedimentary rock commonly used in exterior applications, but its popularity in countertop and bathroom applications is on the rise. The durability and performance of sandstones vary greatly and should be advised on a case by case basis.

GRANITE 


Granites are undoubtedly the most popular stone type used in countertop applications today. Granites are an excellent choice for kitchen countertops, floors, and other heavily used surfaces because of their hardness, low absorption rates and resistance to high temperatures. This group of stones, in a commercial sense, includes many stone materials that are not true granites by geological definition. They are commercially sold as grantie due to similar working and performance properties. These are some of the hardest diminsional stones, offering high levels of resistance to abrasion and scratching, the primary materials in granite materials are resistant to virtually all chemicals found in a residential setting. Granite makes for a perfect working surface because like granite, it: 

  • Resists heat, scratches and stains​
  • Protects against mold and mildew.
  • Variety of different patterns of veins, specks and swirls

Choose from nature's wide palette of colors, veins and patterns. Visit our showroom to see samples, or schedule an appointment with our design team for a chaperoned visit to one of our direct suppliers to pick out your slab in person.

Marble

Marble 


Marble is formed from limestone, superheated to form its unique crystalline structure. It is traditionally prized for its aesthetic appeal, accentuated by pronounced veining and often old colors. Marble is ideal for bathrooms, foyers, floors, wall cladding and hearths. Marble has also become a very popular choice for countertops. Due to their mineralogical makeup, marble can be vulnerable to either abrasion or chemical attack. Exposure to acidic solutions such as lemon juice, tomatoes, red wine and vinegar should be avoided. Acidic solutions can permanently etch the surface of marble. Although impregnating sealers to an excelent job of preventing stains, they do little to reduce the vulnerability of acid attack. Marble is sure to please the eye and makes for a perfect working surface because like granite, it: 

  • Resists heat, scratches, and stains
  • Protects against mold and mildew.
  • Variety of different patterns of veins, specks and swirls
