Reasons to Consider Quartz for Your Kitchen Countertops

Published on September 18th, 2020

The question of what specific type of material to use for your kitchen countertops is not something you should take lightly. Both aesthetics and functionality should be considered when determining what material best fits your needs. Granite in Hinsdale continues to be a popular option, but an increasing number of homeowners are opting for quartz countertops.

Consider the following benefits of quartz countertops to help you make your decision.

It’s Manufactured

Quartz is a man-made stone that allows for a significant increase in how many finish options there are. Homeowners are sure to find a quartz finish that catches their eye. The engineered stone can even be manufactured to look like marble or granite at a fraction of the cost. Regardless of the aesthetic that you want to achieve in your kitchen, you’ll find a quartz countertop to perfectly accompany it.

It’s Non-Porous

Another benefit to quartz is the fact that it’s non-porous. This means that potentially damaging liquids such as wine, tomato juice, olive oil or coffee cannot seep below the surface and cause damage beneath the surface. The fact that it’s non-porous also means that it won’t be a breeding ground for leftover bacteria on the countertops.

It’s Low Maintenance

Engineered quartz countertops do not need to be sealed, making this material ideal for those who don’t want to worry about causing damage. With the right care, you can expect your quartz countertops to last a lifetime.
