Countertop Choices: A Cheat Sheet

Natural Stone

Best for: High-end baths cared for by vigilant homeowners.

Pros: Natural beauty in every slab; allows for undermount sink; polished granite is highly stain and scratch resistant.

Cons: Must be sealed regularly; porous types, such as marble and limestone, will stain and etch if spilled toiletries and cleaners aren't wiped up fast; honed surfaces can show water and oil marks.

Price: $$-$$$
