Why Choose Quartz Countertops?

Why Choose Quartz Countertops?

Choosing your countertop material will be one of your toughest decisions when remodeling your kitchen. There’s plenty on the market today to choose from, but one option that has really been ahead of the curve in terms of durability and style is quartz. Quartz countertops allow for nearly endless style possibilities, and really provide something different in your new modern kitchen. A few benefits of choosing quartz countertops for your new kitchen remodel are:

• Durability – Some natural stone surfaces, while looking beautiful, don’t provide the kind of durability that lasts in a well-used kitchen. Quartz, however, is not one of these options, and it provides near unparalleled durability when compared to other countertop options. Standing up to regular abuse with ease, it’s a top choice for kitchen remodels in homes of busy families who prepare food and use their countertops regularly. Staining, burning, and scratching are rarely any match for highly durable quartz.

• Unparalleled variety – Quartz allows for the single most style variety when compared to any other natural stone option. Quartz countertops are made from engineered stone, rather than natural stone slabs, which means they can be customized to suit any color scheme or design idea you may have in mind for your new kitchen remodel. By choosing quartz, a person is able to extend their kitchen design right down to every countertop.

• Low maintenance – Quartz countertops are incredibly low maintenance, and don’t require the regular sealing and polishing processes found in other natural stone options. Quartz countertops never need to be oiled and sanded like butcher’s blocks, and a simple wipe down is all it takes to keep them clean. For proper maintenance and care of quartz counters, simply wipe down with a mixture of warm water and mild soap.

• Safe and clean – Quartz is a non-porous material, and it’s unable to absorb any moisture left behind. What this means for your kitchen is any bacteria left behind after spills or food prep can be effectively killed and wiped away in just seconds.

For those looking for a low-maintenance, easy to clean, and durable countertop option that adds to the aesthetic value of their kitchen, quartz is pretty hard to beat. Customizing your kitchen to suit your exact interior design vision is incredibly simple using quartz, and this is a natural material built to last longer than nearly any other countertop option.
