Quartz countertops are a new craze in home fashion. Quartz countertops are one of the most durable options for kitchen and bathroom countertops, and also one of the most eye-catching options. Read more to find out how a quartz countertop can benefit your kitchen and bathrooms.
Quartz countertops come in a variety of color and style options
Natural-stone countertops like marble and granite are mined, meaning they are limited in terms of color and patterns. Quartz slabs are manufactured in a factory, from approximately 94% ground quartz. It is combined with polyester resins to bind and give color. Small flecks of glass or metal are sometimes added to the mix for design purposes. What this means is that you have almost infinite style and color options when picking a quartz countertop. There are even companies that specialize in the custom fabrication of quartz countertops.
Quartz countertops are durable and long-lasting
While marble countertops are elegant, they can be prone to chips and scratches. Granite countertops are one of the most durable, but the stone is porous meaning its prone to staining if not properly maintained. Quartz solves both of these issues, the resin used to bind quartz countertops makes them scratch resistant and non-porous. This means instead of worrying about maintaining your countertop and more time enjoying your quartz countertop.
Quartz countertops are low-maintenance
Quartz countertops never requires sealing and requires minimal maintenance. General upkeep only requires quartz countertops to be wiped down with soapy water. Any surface stains can be easily removed with a gentle cleansing brush.
Quartz countertops are antimicrobial.
Because the resin binders used in fabrication make quartz counters nonporous, they prevent odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew from penetrating the surface.
