Choosing the right countertop material is a crucial step in remodeling your kitchen or bathroom. And with so many options available, it can be difficult to make the best choice for your home and lifestyle. You should choose your countertop with the utmost care, so that when you look at it every day for years to come, you’ll feel good about what you chose.

Many people admire natural stone until they learn how expensive it is and think about the work involved in keeping such a surface clean. But, if you are drawn to the look of natural stone but would rather not pay expensive upkeep costs, there is an option available for you: quartz.

Quartz countertops are elegant, modern and timeless—the whole package! Due to their versatility (they’ll look good in any room), quartz is a great choice for homeowners seeking updates but don’t want the hassle of replacing all the other surfaces.

These countertops are extremely durable, making them a great investment. They can withstand just about anything—including the test of time. Want to learn more about quartz and why it’s a great option for almost any project? Check out this article if you’re on the fence about using quartz in your remodel.

Low Maintenance

One thing many people aren’t aware of is that natural stone countertops need frequent resealing—some even require it once a year.

If you’re not interested in doing this, don’t worry; there are other options available to you! If you want your countertop to remain durable and beautiful throughout its lifetime, quartz is the material for you.
Quartz has all the beauty of natural stone—but without any difficult maintenance. Since it’s an engineered stone, quartz is nonporous and comes with little work.

Quartz is naturally resistant to germs, which means it doesn’t need a sealant. Quartz is naturally stain-resistant, so all you have to do clean it is wash it with soap and water. If a spill occurs on your quartz countertop, just wipe up the mess!

A Durable Material

Quartz is a durable, low-maintenance material that’s perfect for busy kitchens. This material is very durable and does not scratch, chip, or break easily.

While it’s true that you can put hot pots and pans directly on your quartz countertop without worrying about damaging it, we still recommend placing a heat pad down first.

Quartz may be durable, but it’s not indestructible—and the last thing you want is for your stove top to permanently scar its surface! 

A Versatile Material

Quartz is known for its versatility: it can mimic the look of almost any natural stone. So, if you can’t afford marble and your kitchen is too rough-and-tumble for the real thing, purchase quartz that mimics it. No one else will know! Quartz is available in many forms, so you’re sure to find one that matches the décor of your kitchen or bathroom.
