Price: $40-$125 a square foot, depending on quality, source and uniqueness

Pros: Newly popular, this natural stone offers the hardness of granite and the lighter color palette of marble. It’s less stain-prone than marble, too.

Cons: Like all natural stones, quartzite needs to be sealed regularly to help it resist stains; once at installation, then once or twice a year after that. Variations in slabs make it difficult to get a consistent look in a large space.

How To Clean It: Wipe up spills right away. Clean with a paper towel and a stone cleaner.
