If you have checked out our website (www.planet-stone.com), or any other countertop retailer, you have likely seen many different options when it comes to granite countertops. You may be wondering what the difference is between each option. Generally speaking, the quartz surfaces themselves are comprised of many of the same materials, with the same hardness, and the same quality. Some companies use different minerals in their quartz that create more color and pattern options. In this list, we will briefly discuss each of the companies we proudly partner with for our quartz countertops.
- Caesarstone: Caesarstone was one of the first companies to manufacture quartz countertops. For many years, Caesarstone has been a leader in the industry, developing new patterns, colors, and more. Caesarstone is not afraid to make bold design choices, with some offerings incorporating semi-precious stones. These stones include Amethyst, Agate, Tiger’s Eye, and Dumortierite in the Concetto Collection. Of course, Caesarstone also offers plenty of traditional slabs in colors like grey, white, and black.
- Silestone: Based out of Spain, Silestone is known for its wide selection of colors, textures, and patterns. While Silestone offers more traditional quartz surfaces, they also produce bright color options, including magenta, yellow, orange, blue, and green. Silestone offers slabs with a veined pattern, fine grain, or large grain to get the look you want for your kitchen. This company also provides sinks, shower trays, and bathroom siding along with countertop slabs.
- Eurostone: Eurostone quartz is comprised of 94% crushed quartz. Other stones are incorporated in some styles. From Eurostone, you can get a traditional grained or veined quartz, as well as pebbled options. Available in blacks, whites, greys, browns, pastels, blues, and warm colors, these countertops are sure to meet your kitchen’s needs.
- Cambria: Cambria is a privately-held company based in Minnesota. Cambria is often an industry favorite because of their vast selection, amazing patterns, and full lifetime warranty. Cambria offers numerous colors including white, black, brown, orange, blue, grey, gold, red, and many more. Like other companies, Cambria offers multiple patterns, including the traditional grain as well as large and small veins, speckled, and more. Cambria is not sold in large home improvement stores, but you can find it in Costco!
- Vadara: Vadara prides itself on offering “the most natural colors available.” Looking at their collections, it is easy to see why. Vadara offers beautiful quartz in traditional colors like white, cream, grey, and beige. Vadara quartz comes with a lifetime warranty, so you know your kitchen will always look its best.
- Verona: Verona is an excellent choice if you are looking for a bit of a twist on classic quartz countertops.

Each of these shades is vibrant, with gorgeous texturing and will look stunning in any kitchen.
