5 Reasons You Should Upgrade Your Laminate Countertops to Quartz

Laminate countertops have been a popular choice in homes for years because it's one of the least expensive kitchen countertop options. While that might be appealing to some homeowners, you'll quickly discover all the downsides to laminate.

Laminate countertops are susceptible to damage. Laminate isn't heat-resistant, so you can burn it if you set a hot pot or pan on the surface. It's also easy to mark with a knife, so you can't use it as a cutting board. Laminate may also delaminate, meaning the protective surface peels away.

These factors make laminate a cheap but impractical solution for the typical busy family kitchen. That's why more homeowners choose LUCASTONE™ Quartz as a better option for their kitchen counters.

Why You Should Upgrade to Quartz Countertops

If you want to change the look of your kitchen, the countertops are the place to start. Switching out your old laminate countertops to stunning engineered quartz can transform your space. It can also make your countertops more practical while adding resale value to your home.

Quartz is More Durable

Engineered quartz countertops like LUCASTONE™ can handle the needs of a busy kitchen. It's also almost impossible to scratch or dent, so dropped objects, knives, or being frequently used isn't going to damage it.

Quartz is Easy to Maintain

Because LUCASTONE™ Quartz is nonporous, it's resistant to bacteria, and you don't have to condition it like other stone countertop options. Simply clean your quartz countertops with soap and water and that's all the maintenance it needs to last you a lifetime.
