While granite remains the most popular countertop material among homeowners, quartz’s rise in popularity has been swift. It’s increasingly becoming known as a superior alternative that provides a sleek, contemporary appearance to any renovated kitchen or bathroom. With its elegant appearance, durability, and low-maintenance nature, it’s a beautiful and practical addition to any residential or commercial interior design project.
Cleanliness & Convenience
One of quartz’s most beneficial attributes is that it is nonporous and nonabsorbent. This makes it ideal for kitchen and bathroom countertops because it doesn’t harbor harmful bacteria and microorganisms such as mold. Quartz is an extremely sanitary surface, and the National Sanitation Foundation has even certified it as a safe food preparation surface. Their nonporous nature also makes them easy to clean. Just wash your countertop with mild soap and water to thoroughly sanitize it. There are no small crevices such as grout to contend with, and no unique cleaning products are required. Quartz also never needs to be resealed, polished, or reconditioned, unlike granite and marble, making them easy to maintain long-term.
Another benefit of quartz is its versatility and aesthetic value. There are a wide variety of colors available such as cream, black, white, and gray. Quartz, unlike materials such as granite, also has a uniform color pattern throughout the entire surface. This makes it easy to choose a quartz product that perfectly matches with the color of other surfaces in your home. It also provides a clean, minimalist appearance that many homeowners love.
Quartz is often chosen for its extreme durability; in fact, it is virtually indestructible. Quartz ranks as a seven on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, the highest of any common countertop material. It’s scratch resistant and less likely to chip and crack than other natural stones. The surface is also scorch-resistant, although excessive heat and rapid temperature change may cause cracking. It’s recommended that you use hot pads or trivets under hot pots or pans. With proper precautions taken, your quartz can be kept in near-perfect condition for many years to come due to its extreme durability. If you want a material that’s built to last, quartz is an excellent option for your home.
