When it comes to great style choice for kitchen and bathroom countertops, more and more people are choosing quartz. It has all the benefits of a natural stone (like granite) with a few extra features that allow for creativity and versatility when it comes to style and design. Quartz is also durable and easy to maintain and is so much better looking than laminate.
Quartz countertops are manmade. They are made from about 93 percent natural stone and about 7% resin that binds it together. It can be made any colour and pattern so can match with any kitchen or bathroom design.
In contrast to granite or marble where you are limited to natural colours and veining that comes with the earth, with quartz countertops you can choose a natural look or get really creative with any colour you can imagine.
Since quartz is non-porous, unlike granite or other natural stone, it is antimicrobial so you will not have to worry about bacteria, mildew or mold getting in. You will also not have to worry about spilling wine which will soak into natural stone.
Quartz is a hard surface not only resistant to stains but also hard to scratch, dent or ding up. It is not as resistant to burns and heat as granite but with proper care, a granite countertop can last forever.
