Yes, bluestone countertops will make your kitchen an easier place to be. THey are easy to clean and maintain. They are functional, chip resistant, and look great. Just remember to have them put the sealant on them so that the sandstone does not get stained by food in your kitchen.
Go for it, but protect your investment. Bluestone is a sandstone and must be properly sealed with a stone sealer because many substances, such as lemon juice, tomato sauce, and various beverages can stain them.
I have bluestone counter tops and I love them. They look beautiful, they are very functional and easy to maintain. They are strong and chip resistent, they do not stain and are very easy to clean. I highly recommend them.
