Material choices for flooring, counter tops an back splashes affect the looks, the functionality and the cost of your project/renovation. Your top priority when choosing these components should be how the material will affect the the functionality.
Whatever material you choose, always remember that glossy finishes have a tendency to show finger and foot marks, and can be slippery when wet. For your counter tops, granite is the most durable natural stone and it is virtually maintenance free and impervious to stains, hot pots and moisture. If you choose using marble and lime stones, remember that these timeless classic material are porous stones and they must be sealed regularly to reduce staining.
If you're planning to live in your house for years, make a material a choices that are personal as you please.
