5 Reasons to Choose Quartz for Your Kitchen

Strength & Durability
One of the top reasons why Quartz is becoming so popular is that it doesn’t have a lot of the same weaknesses that you often find in other natural stone surfaces. It’s incredibly durable, and it won’t scratch or stain. This is why it’s particularly popular with busy families and those who really love to cook. It stands up to a lot of abuse and doesn’t show any wear or tear.

Since Quartz counters are made from engineered stones it allows for more variety than you would find in other natural stones such as marble and granite.

Quartz countertops for instance have over 100 design options and different styles of edge profiles, meaning you can create a look that is guaranteed to suit any style or color of kitchen.

When choosing a countertop you have to be really honest about how much work you’re willing to put into it. Some materials require regular sealing and polishing (granite, marble) while others require regular oiling and even sanding (butcher block). Quartz doesn’t require any of this. All you need to do is wipe it down with a little warm water and mild soap. There’s no need to apply any chemicals or oils.

When it comes to food preparation Quartz is a safe option for a couple of reasons. As mentioned above, there’s no need to treat it with harmful chemicals, but also, because it’s nonporous and non-absorbent, it won’t draw in moisture from raw or leftover food, which can harbour harmful bacteria.

Return on Investment (ROI)
In every renovation I do I’m always thinking about the return on investment. While I never recommend overspending, I do recommend spending where it counts. Because countertops are working surfaces they tend to show their age after a while, but because Quartz is so durable it continues to look new for much longer than other materials. So while pricier than some materials (such as laminate), it will last much, much longer. If you stick with a classic color and style you won’t need to replace it as long as you own your house.
