Quartz Countertops

When you think of a gorgeous new kitchen, chances are you’re imagining granite countertops with rich veining or glimmering sparkles. While granite is regarded as the best natural stone countertop material, it requires coddling, protection, and regular maintenance.

Quartz countertops, on the other hand, have the same elegant look as granite, but are designed for low-maintenance longevity. Quartz is the perfect material for high-traffic areas due to its natural hardness and resistance to scratches. In fact, the only natural materials harder than quartz are diamonds, topaz, and sapphire. Quartz is also nonporous and hygienic, stain and heat resistant, and does not require sealing.

While natural stone slabs are mined, quartz countertops are engineered meticulously in a factory. Quartz countertops are 94% ground quartz and combined with polyester resin, color pigment, and occasionally recycled glass or metallic specks for appearance.

Since the color is fabricated, the options are absolutely endless – you can create the exact fit for your decor, whether brightly eccentric or neutral and earthy. Quartz was once criticized for its limited appearance, but the industry has changed. Today, manufacturers are producing multi-colored slabs with flecks, swirls, and random patterns that are identical to natural stone.

Whether you’re after the matte look of limestone, texture of slate, or glassy sheen of granite, there’s a quartz countertop for you.
