Compared to granite countertops, quartz countertops just don’t get talked about to the degree they deserve. It often boils down to personal preference and there’s nothing better you can do during the countertop shopping process than go to a showroom and take a look at everything for yourself. Nonetheless, being aware of all the unique properties of different kinds of countertop materials can aid you in the shopping process and help you ask the proper questions. There are numerous benefits to quartz countertops that make them an attractive option for many homeowners.
Families know how annoying stains can be, especially if you have small children who might knock over a cup of juice or something of the sorts. Thanks to quartz being non-porous, it is protected from all kinds of stains—like wine, tomato juice, coffee, oils, and anything else that a family may need to worry about. It’s also cleaner and resists bacteria or germs, which helps keep you and your family healthy and eating off of clean surfaces.
Resistant to Wear and Tear
Speaking of having children, not only is stain protection important but protection from any kind of damage. Since quartz is so durable, you don’t need to worry about chipping when anything is dropped onto your countertops. Compared to concrete or granite, it’s pretty tough to cause any real damage to quartz. Big families and families with small children especially know how important a durable kitchen is.
A Different Kind of Material
Many people are interested in natural looking countertops, like certain kinds of wood or even granite. That’s understandable, but there are also some big benefits to quartz that might matter more to homeowners. For one, it has a wider range of colors available, meaning that you can pick the color that goes best with your kitchen’s design. That, bundled with all of the other benefits of quartz countertops, makes it an appealing option for many homeowners these days.
