When it comes to remodelling or renovating the interior of your home, there are so many different options to choose from! For kitchens and bathrooms specifically, countertops are a main component for these rooms, and selecting your preferred material is a big undertaking. After all, you will be using and looking at your counters every day for a very long time so you want to be sure you are selecting something you will love not just in that moment, but in the long run.
Quartz countertops are a wonderful option to consider however they do not get the attention they deserve due to the many misconceptions that exist regarding this material. Thanks to the help of Art’s Countertops, we can provide you with the right information regarding quartz and why it is worth considering for your next project.
Quartz is perfect if you are looking for a material that does not stain, scratch or chip easily. This is ideal for those who spend lots of time cooking or have big and messy families where countertops see a lot of action. Quartz will provide you with the comfort of knowing that you do not have to worry constantly about damaging your counter. While it is not one hundred percent indestructible, what material is?
In addition to this very promising aspect, quartz counters are also durable and resistant to heat damage. Many think heat can easily destroy quartz however that is only true if you place hot pots and pans directly on the counter with zero protection underneath; something that applies to any material and should be avoided in general.
Maintenance wise, you will come to love your quartz countertop as it really does not require much. Unlike natural stone slabs, quartz does not require any sealing in order to maintain its shine or durability meaning you have one less thing to worry about with your busy schedule!
Cost wise, while quartz is not as cheap as laminate, it is also not as expensive as marble even though it can provide you with the same look without the expensive price tag. Additionally, as quartz is a manufactured material made through the combination of natural quartz crystals with pigments, it does not lack in colour and design and you are not limited to certain styles or patterns. If you have a certain look in mind you wish to bring to life, quartz will allow you to turn your vision into a reality through the many varieties it offers.
Next time you have your heart set on granite or marble, consider giving quartz a chance. Who wouldn’t love a countertop that is beautiful in terms of design but also practical and resistant to stains, chips and heat? Be it your next bathroom or kitchen remodelling venture, consider using quartz and be prepared to love the results.
