In terms of durability, no other natural stone flooring options can compare to quartz or granite. The densest and hardest members of the stone tile family, both options resist scratching and staining better than any of the other stone alternatives- which makes them especially ideal choices for kitchens, though they are durable enough to be utilized in almost any application in the home. Both are great stone flooring options, but many customers tend to become torn over which is the best choice for them.
Some considerations & differences:
- Quartz tiles are denser, and non-porous
- Granite tiles are generally more affordable
- Quartz tiles, because of the manufacturing process, generally have a more consistent color throughout.
- Granite tiles tend to have more color veins, striations, and variations.
