Pali often chooses “virtually maintenance-free” quartz surfacing over natural stone because it's “one of the most sanitary materials to use for the kitchen.” The firm's preferred product, CaesarStone, is said to resist most stains, cracks, and scratches. It's available in 40 colors and patterns. U.S. Quartz Products, 877.978. 2789; www.caesarstoneus.com
