3 Big Advantages of Quartz Countertops
Quartz is a very popular material for countertops due to its list of advantages in places typically used for food preparation. Similar to granite, quartz is a beautiful, functional, and durable material that can be a great addition to any design. While there are a few drawbacks with choosing quartz as your material, most commonly the higher price tag, there are some definite upsides as well.
Wide Range of Style Options
If you’re looking for a range of style options to choose from, quartz may be the perfect material for you. Since quartz isn’t 100 percent natural stone but rather pieces of natural material set in resin, it can be made in a variety of colors and styles which may not occur naturally. As a result, quartz countertops often seem to have more depth to their design than other manufactured countertop materials.
Much like granite and concrete, quartz hold up well to the average sort of wear and tear that daily life brings on. Perhaps due to the addition of the resin material to the mix, quartz countertops are often less likely to chip or crack under pressure than more natural materials.
Resistant to Stains
Quartz is a non-porous material, making is more resistant to staining than other materials. This non-porous nature means that any liquid spilled on the surface doesn’t have much ability to soak in and cause staining. The smoother, less penetrable surface also makes it more difficult for bacteria to remain on the counter after cleaning.
