Quartz countertops may not be as popular as granite options but there are plenty of reasons to opt for quartz. At the end of the day, you should head to a showroom and take a look at different options because aesthetics are the number one reason most people choose the countertop material they do. That said, it’s also a good idea to arm yourself with the knowledge you need to be able to purchase the right countertops for you, whether those are quartz countertops or some alternative.
The natural appeal of granite is understandable, but there are some great reasons to want a manufactured countertop material. The manufacturing process allows for a wider range of colors than you may find in natural alternatives like marble or granite, so if you’re trying to adhere to a specific color scheme, quartz may actually be your best bet. There’s a certain depth to the finish of quartz that is unique and for many people, very attractive.
Durability and Accident Resistant
Quartz is an incredibly durable material. For a family with small children who are likely to slam down dishes or drop a jar onto your countertops, this is a necessity. Quartz countertops are more forgiving than concrete or granite and won’t chip or crack as easily. If durability is your concern, then quartz is worth taking a look at. You’ll rest easy knowing your investment in your countertops is protected.
Resistant to Stains
Quartz is a non-porous material so you don’t need to worry about stains which can be a big problem for granite, concrete, and marble. Quartz is able to resist even the nastiest of offenders, including juice, wine, tomato juice, oil, coffee, and other kinds of stains that can leave you feeling hopeless about your counters. Quartz countertops also don’t harbor bacteria or germs thanks to their non-porous quality. This is, again, a big deal for families which is why quartz is so appealing to many homeowners.
