Why a Quartz Countertop Makes Sense

Want to make your home instantly look like a million bucks without breaking the bank by renovating the entire property? Have you longed for gorgeous surfaces in your home that last decades and are easy to clean?

We can transform your kitchen and bathrooms in a snap with the modern elegance and durability of quartz. Quartz countertops lend a luxurious appearance to any surface while also being low-maintenance and renowned for their longevity.

Choosing Quartz

If you’ve considered replacing your countertops with quartz, it’s a smart bet. Not only do quartz countertops have a chic yet understated beauty, but there are also a variety of benefits that come with switching to the solid stone blend for your counters. Here are a few of our favorite reasons why a quartz countertop makes sense for your home.

Luxury That Lasts

 

Quartz countertops have the appearance of solid stone, but they are actually a blend of 95% natural quartz ground with 5% polymer resin. The blend of materials makes the surface more resilient and tough. Quartz is stronger than other stone countertop materials and is almost indestructible.

While quartz countertops aren’t the cheapest option, they are a smart investment that will last for decades and continue to look fantastic without much fuss.

Keeping it Clean

The clever design of quartz countertops’ mix of durable stone and resin makes the surface especially impervious to stains. It also shields against odors and bacteria due to the nonporous material. Because of this, cleanup is a cinch. Water and soap are all you need to keep your countertops sparkling.

Quartz requires less maintenance than other countertops. It doesn’t need to be sealed or require special care like other materials. This makes quartz ideal for the kitchen of a host who loves to entertain, a messy cook, or a family with kids.

Timeless Elegance

Quartz countertops offer a classic look, one that will outlast fads and trends. The variety of colors and styles are as unique as you are. Many homeowners prefer quartz countertops to other material types because they offer that sleek stone look and allow for customizable designs.

Some of the most enchanting quartz countertops include dusty rose with glittering gold branched throughout, blue shades that evoke the seaside frothy with foam, and warm, inviting earth tones. The palate you choose makes a strong statement in your home that reflects and enhances its personality.

Quartz Chameleon

Quartz is the chameleon of countertops. While the natural stone comes in an array of lovely varieties, quartz countertops are customizable. We can create them to mimic granite, marble, or any other surface—even stark white for a minimalist approach.

Another exciting advantage of quartz countertops is that, as a manufactured material, there are many color and style options available and also more uniformity. Variations and irregularities in all-natural stone cannot be controlled, but in bespoke quartz countertops, they can.

Cozy Kitchens, Beautiful Bathrooms, and More

Quartz countertops are obvious choices for kitchens, with their ease of cleaning along with stain- and bacteria-resistant properties. But they make stunning additions to bathrooms while adding a particular charm and practicality to any space.

Picture a clawfoot tub with a rosy-hued quartz countertop, envision a blue that matches the summer sky as the sunlight streams through the window. Now imagine the glamour without the hassle, stains, or bacteria to be bothered with!

Other excellent places for quartz countertops in your home are activity rooms, dining rooms, bars, and any other area that could use a dose of elegance and low-maintenance care.

Environmentally Friendly and Easy to Transport

Love the look of Italian marble or granite? While there is certainly an understandable appeal, quartz materials can be sourced locally, often with native stone and recycled content.

Not only does that utilize regional resources and support local businesses, but it also saves on the cost (financial and environmental) of transporting a heavy load from a far distance.

Simple to Repair

Since quartz countertops are nearly indestructible and require such basic care to keep their luster, the likelihood for repairs is rare, but things can and do happen.

If your quartz counter gets chipped, it can be repaired, just as with natural stone countertops.
