One of the first things that draw a person’s attention when entering a kitchen is the countertops – that’s why home improvement shows inevitably switch out the countertops for something new. For a long time, granite has been the go-to material for new countertops, replacing older standbys. If you’re considering a kitchen remodel project, the material for your countertops should be something you’re contemplating and researching. As you do, consider quartz countertops instead, for the many incredible benefits they offer. Quartz is a beautiful and highly cost-effective choice.
Quartz countertops are manmade using natural quartz (about 90% of the product) and a binder made of polymers and dyes. Quartz is very durable due to one of its components being a polymer binder. Quartz creates a consistently smooth, beautiful surface and nearly impervious to scratches, chips, and stains. Even if you’re banging heavy pots and pans down on the surface, you won’t have to worry about these incredibly durable kitchen countertops.
Because of how these countertops are made (quartz combined with a polymer binder), the surface is very smooth and non-porous. This quality is a significant benefit: the surface won’t stain as easily as porous surfaces, the maintenance is less taxing, and finally, the surface is more sanitary. Both porous surfaces or materials prone to cracking allow germs and bacteria to get down into the material, making them hard to clean. Quartz countertops don’t have either of these problems, and you don’t even have to seal them or apply a wax – they’re naturally resistant. To keep them clean, all you have to do is wipe them down with a cleaning wipe or a cloth with soap and water.
Quartz countertops are also beautiful. Since they’re a manmade material, you will have your choice between a wide variety of colors. Natural stone is also beautiful, but you are limited in the range of colors. With quartz countertops, there will be a style and color that matches your dream kitchen design. Since they’re manmade, they’re also very uniform. Natural stone can have inconsistent coloration, which is beautiful in its own way, but quartz is the best choice if you want all of your countertops to match.
