When it comes to planning the design of your kitchen or bathroom, your choice of countertops is an important one! Countertops impact the overall design and can add visual appeal to any room. Quartz countertops have been rising in popularity and for good reason: Quartz is a low-maintenance, highly durable choice with a wide range of colors and patterns.
Quartz is an engineered product made primarily from crushed quartz. It is combined with resins or polymers to bind it, and various pigments to give it color. Since it is a manmade product, there is more design flexibility with quartz. They come in a wide variety of colors and can be manufactured to look like marble, limestone, concrete and even granite!
The resin binders used in the manufacturing process make quartz countertops one of the most durable options. They are non-porous – which means they will not absorb any moisture or bacteria – and they will never need to be sealed. Additionally, the resins help to make these counters both stain- and scratch-resistant. Quartz can be damaged by excessive heat, however, so homeowners should use heating pads and trivets.
