Granite and marble countertops have dominated in kitchens and bathrooms, but there’s a new player in the market known by the name Quartz. It has become popular with homeowners and designers because it offers several positive features, including extreme durability and practically zero maintenance. It is just as beautiful as Granite and is hassle-free because it is an engineered stone, which means the stone is artificially made.
Now let us look at points how you can rejuvenate the appearance of your kitchen with quartz countertops:
It Can Complement any Design- As Quartz is humanmade, it can meet any aesthetic preference of your home. They are available in solid colours. They also imitate Granite and marble in terms of aesthetic appeal. This material allows for a broad selection of colours and patterns that offers a wide range of choices to the end consumers. Since it is an engineered material, you can find Quartz in more colours than Granite or any naturally occurring stones.
It Increases home value- When you are investing in a home improvement project, it’s essential to consider how much the investment will improve your home’s value. You will be happy to know that quartz countertops are a sure way to increase your home’s value by 3% – 7%. If you’re looking for an appealing countertop option that will be worth the investment, there is no better option than Quartz.
Enhanced Stain Resistance- We all know that countertops are installed in the bathroom and kitchen where they often contact water that could end in stains. Luckily the Comptoir quartz is a non-porous material meaning it has no pores that will allow water to penetrate the surface, thus no damage, discoloration, and staining. You can be relaxed knowing your quartz counters will repel liquid, allowing them to maintain their beauty for many years to come.
Durable- Quartz is the most durable material out there, and it is humanmade. It is composed of natural stone bound with polymer resins; due to this we get a nearly indestructible countertop material. Also, we need to keep in mind that engineered Quartz is designed to resist corrosion and blotches from cooking oils. Even cleaning is relatively easy. You can use any disinfectant to clean your quartz countertops. Quartz countertops are an expensive investment in your kitchen that will last long.
Environmentally Friendly- As you know that Quartz is not a naturally occurring stone, it is made from leftover materials (Stones that would have been disposed of). Thus, you are reducing the carbon footprint. When you choose for Quartz as a countertop, you are contributing towards the Green environment.
With all said you need to take some precautions too, although the Quartz is resistant to water, they can be damaged by liquids such as bleach, paint, nail polish remover, and similar materials. The only thing you need is to wipe them down with a damp cloth with warm water and soap every so often.
