Custom Stone Countertops & More

Materials matter when you are designing or remodeling a kitchen or bathroom, updating a fireplace, or adding an outdoor or landscaping element. Natural stone is an ideal material for countertops because it is sturdy and durable, while at the same time, timelessly elegant. The experts at Exotic Era Stone have a combined 50 years of experience fabricating and installing various types of countertops for kitchens, bathrooms, bars, outdoor spaces, and commercial projects. We provide the greater Indianapolis area with unsurpassed stone for all types of countertops, whether kitchen, bathroom, exterior, or commercial, as well as other custom stone projects.

Types of Countertops

When choosing stone for a countertop or other project, you’ll want to consider its use as well as your budget and your own personal taste. The professionals at Exotic Era Stone will help you evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of various materials and choose the one that is right for your project. We offer granite, marble, quartz, soapstone, onyx, travertine, and porcelain in a variety of colors and patterns. We will help you find the right look for your residential or commercial countertops.

Granite Sets the Standard

Granite is the premiere choice for kitchen countertops. It is both durable and non-porous enough to stand up to the demanding environment of the typical kitchen.  Many people believe that granite makes the best kitchen countertops because of its beauty as well as its ability to withstand damage from cutting utensils, hot cookware, and spilled liquids.

Marble, The Epitome of Elegance

When home-owners want to create an elegant atmosphere, marble is a popular choice. Classy, moderately durable, and resistant to heat, marble is a beautiful choice for custom bathroom vanity tops. Since marble is softer and more porous than granite, marble is more susceptible to damage from acid-etching and daily wear-and-tear. Thus, it has traditionally been considered unusable in the kitchen. However, with the development of CLEARSTONE, that is changing. This clear coating can protect marble and even more delicate stones. Exotic Era Stone is experienced with and certified to apply CLEARSTONE.

Quartz Stands the Test

For countertops that have the look of natural stone but don’t require the same attention and care, quartz countertops are often a great choice. Quartz countertops are engineered using natural quartz as well as other materials. More durable and less porous than natural stone countertops, quartz is easier to maintain and works well even under the demands of heavy use.  Exotic Era Stone is certified to fabricate and install the following popular quartz brands: LG Viatera, Msi Q Quartz , Samsung Radianz, Hanstone , Silestone,  PolarStone , Color Quartz , VicoStone, and Caesarstone.

Something a Little Different

The most popular choices for custom kitchen countertops and custom bathroom vanities are granite, marble, and quartz, but some projects call for something a little bit different. Maybe you want your kitchen, bathroom, or other stone project to stand out from the look of your neighbors’ homes. Or maybe the design choices you’ve made call for a specific look or texture. Exotic Era Stone has stone slabs beyond the current popular choices. We also carry the following natural stone slabs, each of which has its own unique offerings.

  • Onyx – This beautiful and unusual stone has a delicate look that is one-of-a-kind. Onyx is translucent and may be back-lit to produce a back splash or countertop that is enchanting.
  • Soapstone – While most fabricated stone are polished, soapstone is available in different textures, providing the opportunity to introduce a unique feel to your custom countertops.
  • Travertine – With distinctly earthy tones and a soft creamy look, travertine is both subtle and appealing. Similar in appearance to marble, it is more durable and easier to maintain.
  • Porcelain – Tough yet beautiful, porcelain is a growing favorite for exterior projects. Its strength also allows for a thin slab, which can be an advantage in some custom projects.
