Quartz Kitchen Countertop Considerations

24 Jul, 2018 |

Are you thinking about upgrading your kitchen with the addition of a gorgeous new countertop? If you are, then you should consider going for quartz. Quartz countertops are currently all the rage in food preparation spaces, and people adore them with good reason.

Quartz Color Options

Quartz has a look that's memorable and appealing. It comes in many colors and the options exceed those of natural stones. For this reason, if you find granite and marble colors rather limited, quartz may be for you.

Pros of Quartz Countertops

If you want a kitchen countertop that's the dictionary definition of "durable," quartz is the most trusted material.

  • Quartz countertops are amazingly strong and resilient.
  • They are engineered stone made from ground quartz, resin, color, and polymer.
  • They are more durable than granite and concrete and are not vulnerable to fast cracking or breaking.
  • Quartz countertops don’t require sealing and are non-porous meaning bacteria isn’t an issue.

Cons of Quartz Countertops

Although there are many perks to quartz countertops, there are also some potential negatives of which to be aware.

  • Quartz countertops require professional installation. This is due to the fact that the material is solid. If you like the idea of installing your kitchen countertop on your own, quartz many not be the best choice.
  • Quartz countertops in kitchens also have styles that are undoubtedly contemporary. If your food preparation area is a bit more classic in feel, quartz may not be the greatest match.
  • Quartz, last but not least, is also vulnerable to the effects of heat. Don't assume that piping hot dishes won't do a number on your breathtaking quartz countertop.
