Quartz countertops are on trend right now. If you scan the latest interior design magazines and articles, you’ll see numerous examples. It’s easy to see why their popularity is growing. Quartz countertops are attractive, durable and versatile.
Let’s explore some of the pros and cons of quartz countertops (also known as engineered stone countertops):
Quartz is manufactured or engineered stone. Unlike natural stones like granite and marble, the manufacturing process allows for a more diverse range of options as far as color and pattern. The finished stone has a beautiful, rich appearance. With certain colors and veining, you can even achieve a luxurious marble-like appearance.
Quartz countertops are durable. The material is as strong as granite and concrete but a bit more forgiving as it’s less likely to chip and crack easily. One of the most important features of a countertop is being non-porous. Quartz is non-porous so it’s resistant to staining and less likely to harbor bacteria. It’s easy to care for, clean and disinfect.
