When creating or renovating a kitchen, one of the biggest concerns of a customer or contractor is choosing countertops that are both extremely functional and great looking. The job of kitchen worktops is to “bring it all together,” both practically and aesthetically. For these reasons, a quartz kitchen countertop is the way to go when modeling a kitchen.
Quartz countertops are known for offering a striking balance between form and function. Quartz, one of the most abundant minerals on Earth, comes in several varieties when sorted by color; smoky, milky, and rosy are just a few. This leaves plenty of options and possibilities when one is trying to match the other kitchen decor.
It’s not just the aesthetic appeal that makes quartz the ideal choice for any kitchen renovation or construction. As previously noted, this mineral is highly durable and functional in even the most trying of circumstances. In most situations, quartz countertops, especially when purchased from reputable companies, are stain-resistant, heat-resistant and scratch-resistant. If these countertops see a lot of action (and even if they don’t) these qualities are a must have. In other words, these countertops are tough. Only three other minerals in the world are just as strong which are sapphire, topaz, and diamond.
Some customers question why they should go with quartz when the price (roughly $50-$100) is in the same ballpark as granite. The answer is simple. Quartz is better. Granite not only comes unsealed, but like most other mineral countertops it emits small amounts of radon. Besides health and extra work concerns, quartz countertops come in a variety of moldings to fit any kitchen, right out of the gate. If one is looking to renovate or construct a kitchen and to make it one of the most used rooms in the house, look no further than quartz countertops.
