Why Quartz is the New Standard for Kitchen Countertops

Laminate countertops used to be the standard in every home. They are inexpensive, easy to install, and come in hundreds of colors and patterns. The drawback to laminate is that they are impossible to repair, susceptible to burning and scratching, and not as appealing to today’s homeowners.

Quartz countertops are one of the most desirable counter surfaces, and one that homeowners are demanding in their renovations or new home purchases. Here are a few reasons why:


Quartz is extremely durable. You can set a hot pot on it without worrying about scarring the finish. You can’t accidentally scratch it by dragging something across it. You can even cut on it, but it’s so tough it will dull the edges of your knives before taking any abuse itself. And, with proper care, it can last for generations.


Quartz used to be available in only a couple of colors, but as more markets have opened up, an amazing variety of colors and patterns can be found. If you love the striking grain of a completely unique piece of stone, or if you want a more subtle pebbled pattern, you can find a countertop that you will love. You can find a color that perfectly complements a traditional home with traditional wood cabinets, or a pattern that adds drama to a modern home with shiny cupboards and sleek appliances.


Although quartz isn’t cheap, it’s more affordable than ever before, and it will pay for itself if you ever decide to sell your home.


Due in part to its durability, quartz is completely maintenance free. Since it is man-made, it is non-porous and does not need to be resealed. If you spill wine of it, do not worry it would not stain.

Quartz countertops have become the gold standard in kitchens because they are durable, come in every style and color imaginable, and are easy to maintain. More homeowners are demanding the quality and durability of granite.
