Blog Trends of natural stones for 2021

          Brazilian marbles have surpassed all expectations with their exceptional durability and their tough composition.  Because of the abundant presence of the mineral dolomite, Brazilian marbles are much more resistant and less porous than traditional marbles allowing for their use in high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms.  Also, due to their mineral composition,there is much less chance of oxidation stains appearing over time.  With their very beautiful patterns and high quality, meet the Brazilian marbles that will become trends in 2021.

         The hardest of the natural materials available are the quartzites.  These stones are very similar to marble in color and pattern but are much more durable.  These materials have no natural pores and can be used in any environment with no worries.  Historically the price for quartzite has been higher than granite and marble because of its uniqueness and higher costs of production, but due to the increasing production by Brazilian companies of this material prices should start to become more accessible in 2021.  With their beauty, strength, and durability the quality of quartzites are really impressive - they’re an exquisite addition to your design.  Check out the most desired quartzites for the coming year.

        Granites should keep their prices stable as demand levels off.  Although usually seen as a basic material it’s sometimes still possible to find high quality variations and patterns that make this material different.  See the varied options that will be trending in 2021 - and that Brothers will make it incredibly easy to buy.
