Quartz Countertops

Quartz is the new king when it comes to kitchen countertops. This is because it is one of the hardest minerals on Earth, so it makes a very durable and long lasting surface for any area in the home!

Quartz is a natural stone, but quartz countertops are often referred to as “engineered” due to the fact that they are made by combining natural ground quartz with resin, polymers and pigments. The amount of natural quartz in a slab varies depending on the style and brand you choose.

Advantages of Quartz

  • They are extremely durable.
  • This countertop option never has to be sealed, unlike granite, marble, and other surfaces that require regular maintenance.
  • Quartz countertops are also nonabsorbent, which makes them resistant to staining and unable to harbor harmful bacteria.
  • They are 100% scratch resistant. In fact, they are so hard that they may dull a knife that is used directly on the surface.
  • Quartz is extremely versatile and is available in a wide variety of beautiful designs, colors, and patterns that will fit any kitchen design.


Designing With Quartz

From an interior design and aesthetics perspective, this material allows for a number of stylistic choices—from simple specks to bold veining—in a variety of colors.

How do you care for quartz countertops?

To clean quartz countertops, all you will need is water and a soft cotton cloth. If desired, mild soap can also be used, but harsh cleaners should be avoided. Unlike marble and granite, quartz countertops  never require sealing or polishing. So with this taken into consideration, quartz countertop maintenance is a simple process which is definitely a plus for those looking for a beautiful surface without all the upkeep.
