Why Consider Quartz Countertops?
We were recently featured in an article on the topic of Quartz countertops, so we thought we’d share some information on this increasingly popular countertop choice.
Quartz is often compared to granite but unlike granite, quartz is man-made. In addition to its anti-microbial properties, it’s available in a variety of different colors and patterns not found in natural stone. We use quartz regularly in contemporary and modern design projects for this reason, and often suggest it as an option in traditional designs as well.
Quartz is a very durable and low maintenance product. It does not require sealing or polishing and as mentioned above, is anti-microbial. If you opt for a granite countertop it will most likely require a new protective coat of sealer at least once a year. Although quartz is very resistant to oils and stains, it can be damaged by excessive heat so that is something a homeowner should be aware of.
Tom Wills wrote a great piece on “Top Quartz Interior Design Styles for 2019.” He touches on different design styles and how they incorporate quartz. Go take a look at his article and see what our head designer, Rebecca Johnston, has to say about quartz click here.
