Granite: Very durable because it is stone. Since it’s porous will need to be sealed periodically. Granite is in the high price bracket. Concrete: Very durable although it is possible to crack. It can be molded into shapes and stained different colors. It too, should be sealed and is in the med range price bracket.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out, select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
