As Arizona’s largest provider of reasonably priced natural stone, Imperial Wholesale has a wide selection of countertops in Phoenix to choose from.

No kitchen or bathroom is complete without a countertop. At Imperial Wholesale, we offer granite, onyx and prefabricated countertops to accommodate the needs of just about any homeowner out there.

Countertops are one of the most important elements in any kitchen. They need to be durable, easy to maintain and even easier to clean. Because countertops take up so much space in the kitchen, it is vital that you choose a countertop that complements the style of your home.

You basically have three design choices when it comes to choosing the color and style of your countertop:

  1. Blending neutral – You can choose a neutral colored countertop that will blend in with your cabinets and/or walls.
  2. Contrasting neutral – You can choose a neutral colored countertop that will actually contrast against your kitchen walls and/or cabinets.
  3. Statement – You can choose a bright or bold color or pattern that will make a serious statement in your kitchen, and be the base for the rest of your kitchen’s design and décor.


Granite countertops have become the top choice for kitchen countertops in the United States. The clean and sleek surface, rich colors and natural charm of granite is unmatched by other countertop options. In addition to the stone’s beauty, granite is also an extremely strong and durable surface. This beautiful stone is resistant to mold, mildew, bacteria, heat, staining and scratching. The strength of granite makes it a top choice for all your countertop needs.\


Imperial Wholesale also offers a large variety of onyx stone. With distinctive colors and patterns in the stone, onyx is a unique option for your countertops. Imperial Wholesale has a wide range of onyx colors and patterns; in fact, Imperial Wholesale is the only supplier in Arizona that offers a selection of Red Onyx found in El Venado, Mexico. If you are looking for countertops that are more than functional, but stunning and unique as well, onyx is a perfect solution for you.
