Determining what type of kitchen countertop to install in your home can be a daunting task. There are so many different choices available that often individuals will not consider their available options and instead allow a contractor, neighbor, or sales person to influence their decision without taking the proper steps to ensure that your selected surface is the one best suited for your home and lifestyle.
Think about it, your kitchen countertop will receive daily use. Not just for cooking, or eating purposes but decorative items, daily items, storage, drinks, and many other things will come into contact with them repeatedly. Ensuring your surface can stand up to the constant shuffle, hustle, and bustle inside your home will be extremely important.
Quartz, granite, solid surface, marble, the list goes on in terms of material and that’s not even considering the different available design options once you determine part one. There are color selections to be made, seams to be installed, and a host of other decisions which must be considered before completing the installation process.
For quartz - there are a number of factors which make this a ‘solid’ selection.
The strength of quartz countertops is undeniable. A natural stone, quartz countertops also go through a more rigorous manufacturing process which serves to increase the durability of this selection over other natural stone surfaces.
Quartz countertops are so scratch resistant that foods can be cut directly on the surface although the use of a cutting board is still recommended. Think of it like a waterproof cell phone, no one is going to literally submerge their phone to test it but knowing should it happen that you are protected is just as important - quartz countertops provide a similar type of protection.
The manufacturing process allows for quartz to be available in a wide variety of different colors and shades. This option has made quartz the new countertop contender
for those in the market for a new surface and wanting to create a specific color inside their kitchen or bar area.
One of the best things about quartz countertops is the ease of their maintenance. Unlike many of the other stone surfaces, quartz does not require a sealant application. While regular and routine maintenance is recommended, there is not special step that has to applied in order to keep your countertops serving effectively and continually providing quality use.
