Four Types of Countertops to Consider for Your Next Hotel Project

Choosing the right countertop is one of the most important details in designing a hotel bathroom or kitchen, and with all the options available, it can become a difficult decision. We want to help you narrow down your choices. Here are four common types of stone and solid surfaces and essential information about each type.


Marble is a metamorphic rock, meaning it is formed under intense heat and pressure. It is primarily made up of calcium carbonate. Marble is naturally the most fragile option of the four stones, but its unique veining featured throughout each slab makes it a very popular and timeless option. Marble slabs are commonly used in bathrooms and kitchens, but it is also an elegant option for a fireplace, surround or backsplash.

If you’re interested in marble, MGroup™ offers three types – Mstone®, Monza®, and Trevi®, each with its own unique characteristics. Our oldest marble line, Mstone, offers 11 colors, with neutral shades of black, white, beige, and brown.

Within our Mstone marble selection, we also offer Monza®, our marble tile patterns. Monza is durable, stain-resistant, easy to maintain, and provides high abrasion resistance. Each tile measures 126” wide x 59” length with a thickness of up to 12mm and includes a wide variety of 36 colors.

Trevi® is our large-format floor and wall tiles. These visually appealing tiles range in size and reach a maximum size of 150cm x 300cm. The tile features include a 3m2 panel made up of a 28mm thick honeycomb core and a 5mm thick marble skin that bears 50x more deformation and stress than a 20mm thick traditional marble slab.

Granite is a natural stone that is both durable and stain, heat, and scratch-resistant. It is stunning in any format. Granite products are offered in a large variety of colors and patterns, including some full slab options. Granite is difficult to damage, will not fade or discolor over time, and is not sensitive to cleaning chemicals. With so many color options, you are sure to find something that appeals to you. If you are considering granite, Mstone offers over 40 color options.


Quartz is a hard mineral composed of one part silicon and two parts oxygen and is one of the most abundant and hardest minerals found on Earth’s surface. Because it is an engineered product made up of 93% quartz mineral, it is the most durable stone currently available in the market. Quartz is non-porous, low maintenance, stain-resistant, and water-resistant. It is an excellent option for your vanity or kitchen countertops. Mstone offers quartz in five light color options to provide a durable yet sleek look to your design.


Ultracera® surfaces are created using a unique blend of ceramic and decorative aggregates. Exclusive to MGroup, the high-performance, engineered product provides the beauty of natural stones while remaining environmentally friendly and as durable as quartz. It is impermeable and prevents liquids and pathogens from penetrating the surface. Thus, it is extremely sanitary and easy to clean and maintain.

Ultracera incorporates the beauty of natural stones while maintaining the performance of a modern manufactured surface. You can find patterns like marble in our impressive selection of over 100 color options.
