Ease of Maintenance

Because it is non-porous, Quartz is notable for its ease of maintenance, without the need for sealing, oiling, or waxing. All you need to clean Quartz is warm water and soap on a sponge or soft cloth – no special cleaners to deal with or purchase. Since Quartz is non-porous, it is also resistant to bacteria, making it ideal for surfaces where food prep takes place.

Quartz is available in any color of the rainbow and can be easily fabricated into virtually any shape or size, making it easy to fit into any style of decor.

Once upon a time, granite was the first and last word in residential kitchen countertops. When homeowners fantasized about their dream kitchens, there was no doubt that granite countertops would be a part of it. With their timeless elegance and excellent resale value, granite ruled with the steady dominance unseen by other materials.

That is, until now.

According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), there is a new number-one for residential kitchen countertops, and that material is Quartz. Quartz is everywhere these days, just turn on any HGTV show and you will see it featured in many of their kitchen projects.

Though granite is still incredibly popular (and an excellent) choice for kitchen countertops, many are starting to recognize the appeal of Quartz. A human-made surface, Quartz is the first surface to give granite a run for its money. Over the years, more homeowners and designers have begun to realize the benefits of quartz surfaces, and there has been a steady increase in the specification of Quartz in kitchen and bath projects.

In their blog “6 Top Trends For Kitchen Countertop Design in 2019”, Sebring Design Build, Quartz is listed as their #1 trend inching ahead of granite in popularity for residential kitchen countertops.

So what is it about Quartz that is so appealing? Here are some specific qualities and benefits to Quartz.

Practicality 

Quartz countertops made up of 88% real quartz, the hardest mineral on Earth, making these countertops exceptionally durable as well as resistant to stains and scratches. With its durability and variety of appearances available, Quartz is an extremely cost-effective solution with a similar regal and elegance only found in natural stone or granite without any need for sealing.

Ease of Maintenance

Because it is non-porous, Quartz is notable for its ease of maintenance, without the need for sealing, oiling, or waxing. All you need to clean Quartz is warm water and soap on a sponge or soft cloth – no special cleaners to deal with or purchase. Since Quartz is non-porous, it is also resistant to bacteria, making it ideal for surfaces where food prep takes place.

Versatility

Quartz comes in a wide range of colors, unlike natural stone, which is limited to the natural process by which it’s formed. Natural stone can also vary in its appearance, so what you get in your kitchen may differ from the sample you may have selected.

Quartz is available in any color of the rainbow and can be easily fabricated into virtually any shape or size, making it easy to fit into any style of decor.
