Quartz countertops are some of the most beautiful countertops you can put in your home. If you're trying to decide on a look for your new kitchen, here are some basic facts about this type of countertop to help you choose the best option for your home.
Something you may not know about quartz is that it is not found in nature. Quartz is a compound material, made to be both beautiful and strong.
Because this material is man-made the surface is non-porous and is resistant to both stains and scratches.
Another benefit of quartz is that it is very affordable. Because it is constructed and not found in nature it is not particularly rare or difficult to purchase like marble. Perhaps the best thing about quartz is that you can find it in a large variety of colors and patterns to match your personal style.
If you have a galley kitchen or other kitchen that is a simple layout, you may be able to buy the countertops in a store. For more complex kitchens, or if you need a custom piece made, you will need to commission a custom design.
