When remodeling a kitchen or building a new home, there are many important decisions to be made. From layout to colors to materials, it can seem a bit overwhelming. What most people need is some sound information to help them make the best choices for their taste and situation. When it comes to countertops, there are many options available. From cheap laminate countertops to marble, granite and quartz counters, the possibilities are endless. So why choose quartz over any other countertop options? Here are a few points you should consider.
Quartz (Silestone, Caesarstone, Cambria, Zodiaq, Hanstone, Quartz Masters) is the single most durable countertop option out there. Its price typically rivals that of granite and marble, and while it is somewhat more expensive than laminate, it offers many advantages that the cheaper options just can’t compete with. For one, it is so tough and resilient that you likely never will to install new countertops in your lifetime – or that of your house. Just that fact is enough to convince most people that quartz countertops are a good investment.
Quartz (Silestone, Cambria, Caesarstone, Zodiaq) counters also not only look beautiful, they will increase the value of your home in and of themselves. If you ever want to sell your house down the line, your quartz counters are sure to be worth the investment. Furthermore, they will never decrease in value, so your initial investment continues to grow steadily and safely.
Quartz counter tops are nonporous, which means that they will never stain. This also means that they need no sealant or special treatment, and bacteria or mold will never take hold. A simple cleaning with a mild detergent, water and a soft cloth are all that is required to keep your quartz counters shiny and clean. Even better, quartz countertops are heat resistant, which means you can sit very hot pots and pans on their surface without fear of burn marks or any other form of damage. Good bye pot holders!
Quartz counters come in a large variety of colors, patterns and swirls. Some have metallic flakes embedded in the stone and others have unique swirls and hues. Whatever your current or future décor, you are sure to find just the right quartz countertops for your kitchen and your taste. Quartz counters also give any room an instant facelift and create an ageless, classical look no matter what color or pattern you choose. What’s not to like? Choose quartz counters for their beauty, value and durability. You won’t regret your choice!
Another very important precaution about Quartz Stone is in relation to quality, as there is a lot of identical material on the market but that doesn’t follow the 94% quartz to 6% resin standard, so stay tuned and if the price is too low be suspicious. When I was making quotes at the time, I remember that prices varied a lot, some places were low, but I preferred to pay the real market value and be sure of the origin of the stone in a trustworthy store.
