Things to Consider When Choosing Quartz Countertops
Upgrade Selection Choice : Quartz Countertops Quartz countertops are beautiful, durable and add a level of luxury to your kitchens and bathrooms. There are a lot of quartz countertop pros and not a lot of cons. Let's take a closer look at the benefits of choosing this material.
Ten quartz advantages
Here are some advantages
1. Uniform in Appearance
Quartz can be manufactured to have a uniform appearance. If you want your countertops to have an even and consistent appearance, this is a clear advantage for quartz.
2. Easy to Repair
While it’s unlikely for a quartz counter to chip, if it does, replacing a broken piece is simple because of the uniformity of the product. With a granite, you could have a hard time matching colors or patterns to make repairs.
3. Wide Range of Colours
Quartz counters come in virtually any color you’d like. So no matter what your cabinet and flooring color combinations are, you’ll be able to find a quartz countertop to match your aesthetic.
4. Environment Friendly
Since granite is mined out of the ground and usually transported long distances, it’s pretty rough on the environment. Quartz, on the other hand, can be created from local and recycled minerals so it can be more environmentally friendly than granite.
5. Requires Less Maintenance
Granite has to be resealed annually. It’s also vital to clean granite counters with a mild cleanser every day to avoid staining and to promote longevity. Quartz, on the other hand, doesn’t have to be sealed and doesn’t require any special care.
Quartz is harder than granite, and it’s nearly indestructible.
7. It’s Antibacterial
Quartz is not porous, it resists bacteria growth. Granite, on the other hand, is porous and must be resealed and regularly cleaned to avoid bacteria build-up. Quartz’s non-porous nature makes it an ideal countertop choice for both the kitchen and the bathroom.
8. Mimic the Look of Other Stones
If you love the look of granite or marble, but prefer the quartz advantages, you can get both with quartz. You can even make your quartz counters look like white solid surface countertops, and quartz has a depth and complexity to its appearance.
9. Priced Similarly to Granite
You’ll pay about the same for both materials even though quartz is more durable, lower maintenance, and easier to repair.
10. Longer Warranty
Because of its durability, companies typically offer an outstanding warranty on their quartz countertops, many quartz counters come with lifetime warranties. Granite counters don’t generally boast the same type of warranties because damages are more common.
Let's think about the details. Did you know that you can choose the edge style of your quartz countertops? Choose from Flat Standard, Pencil, Single Radius and Single Bevel.
Choosing the Right Colour Quartz Countertop
All factors to consider are your budget and aesthetics. While it can be overwhelming trying to choose a colour for your Quartz, start with a couple. Then pick which one is superior in your book. As long as you’re happy with the final result, you’ve made a great choice. Remember, picking out your selections for your new home can be an exciting time!
