With so many options for kitchen countertops, you'll need some help narrowing down your material choice. Here are some reasons to select quartz countertops that you'll be sure to enjoy for many years to come.
What makes natural stone material so difficult to shop around for is that every piece is unique. For example, one slab of granite is not going to look like another slab in some ways, which means it takes a lot of browsing to find the right type of natural stone for you. Quartz has the benefit of being manufactured, so the look is consistent. This makes it much easier to browse for material online and order a material that you want, since there will be no surprise about what it looks like when the material arrives.
If you ever need to get additional quartz countertop material, know that it is possible to find more of it that is going to match. As long as the manufacturer is still making the material in the same way, it is possible to purchase the exact style that you have in your kitchen.
One factor that makes quartz appealing as a countertop material is that quartz is not porous. This is great as a homeowner because there is no need to really maintain the material by applying a seal to the surface. This must be done with natural stone material that is porous, since liquids can actually absorb into the natural stone if left on the counter by accident. If this happens with quartz, the liquid is going to pool on the surface rather than being absorbed into it.
The nonporous surface also makes quartz resistant to bacteria growth. It will be easy to clean off the surface and know that there are not hidden microbes of bacteria that found their way into the surface.
The great thing about quartz is how durable the material is, which makes it a wonderful choice for a kitchen. Cheaper materials tend to become damaged easily in a kitchen, which is typically due to no fault of your own. You may have children that decide to cut something directly on the counter top, leaving cuts in the material that will never go away. This will not happen if you select quartz.
