People often use marble, granite, quartzite and quartz to design their kitchens. While marble and granite are natural stones, quartz is a manufactured stone. All three have their own pros and cons. Granite is preferred for its elegance and the brightness and smoothness it imparts to the area.
Sensa granite is premium natural granite, which is virtually maintenance-free. The one drawback that granite is associated with, is that it is porous and hence prone to stains. Sensa worktops by Cosentino are treated with SenGuard, which is a revolutionary stain protection treatment, making its surface stain resistant.
Comparatively, quartz is harder. As it is non-porous, it doesn’t get stained and it’s easy to keep this surface bacteria-free. But it is less resistant than granite when it comes to high heat, and therefore one needs to be careful while putting hot cooking pans on it.
One can go for either stone depending, on his or her preference of natural or manufactured stones. Additionally, the pros and cons associated with each of this stone must be taken into consideration, depending on the type of application for which the stone may be required.
As an example, quartz works perfectly well in practically any area of interiors, but it isn’t suitable for exteriors. On the other hand, practically all granite is suitable for interior and exteriors.
