Do I have to use the same material through out my kitchen?
TIP: You don’t have to use the same material for every counter space. A durable surface such as soapstone, granite or Silestone is great near the stove and sink where stains are more likely to occur. If you like a more porous stone like marble, use it where spills can be minimized, like an island. When mixing countertop surfaces do try to avoid mixing two different materials with movement. Instead try a solid with one that is veined—pair materials like you would an outfit.
